HOSHINOYA Karuizawa is nestled in a forest-covered valley through which a river gently flows. Guest pavilions stand side by side with the beautiful native fauna. It is a resort village that exists without disrupting the natural environment it inhabits.

Living rooms have been designed with a floor-level perspective. Tables and sofas are low, but are placed over or by leg space built into the floor. This low orientation increases the feeling of ceiling height and enhances the room's overall sense of spaciousness.

The hot spring that gave birth to a resort
HOSHINOYA Karuizawa began as a hot spring bath dug by founder Kunitsugu Hoshino in 1914, in an area that had long been known as a hot spring hotspot. Its soothing waters served as a kind of balm for bathers returning from the Kusatsu hot springs-famous for their acidity.

A gathering place for cultural figures

As the hot spring's reputation for skin care benefits grew, Hoshino established an inn on the site in 1915. Within a few years, the inn grew into a cultural center for writers such as Hakushu Kitahara and Toson Shimazaki, who wrote several masterpieces on this very site.

Continuing the hot spring tradition

The Hoshino hot spring is still an integral part of the resort. The restorative effects that have soothed generations of bathers can be found in the resort's Tombo-no-yu, as well as the more contemporary Meditation Bath, which emphasizes total body relaxation.

At the resort, wild greens begin to sprout in March, with trees and flowers following in late April. The wind is more pleasant and the sunlight a little warmer, making it perfect for strolling the resort premises and, perhaps, participating in a few nature-based activities.
