We were in Japan on a business trip for 6 days out of which we spent 4 days in Osaka & Ṭokyo. We wanted to see cherry blossom so my boss recommended us this place - Karuizawa. This is place is like a second home for Japanese and is like a hill station. You will find snow peaked mountains in...

All the rooms in this hotel look out onto a serene pond and endless green golf course. I can just sit in the room and stare at the view all day, that's how amazing it is. The hotel feels like an upscale cabin in the woods. The only downside is there's only one restaurant on site, but other than that,...

We may have just stayed here during the wrong season. We stayed in april during our trip through japan and there wasn't much going on. The skiers had already left and the golf courses were just getting primed for golf season. So, I will say first off that if you are a skier or a golfer, this place would probably...

We have family checked in hotel and staying in cottage for 3 nights. This is really most awful hotel I ever stayed among of all hotels. No smiles, inconvenient, and not kids friendly place. Don't waste your money and holidays here.

We went to Karuizawa because my children want to see snow and want to play in the snowpark. Since we visited Japan on early December so we decided to go to Prince Snow Resort in Karuizawa which always open earlier than other ski resort. The place is so easy to access, just next to Karuizawa station and only an hour...

The hotel is conveniently located, given that we also rented a car. It is only about a 5 minute drive from the train station. We decided on the Japanese shabu shabu dinner which is at the Prince West, so we also had to drive there from our main hotel. The hotel is rather old, but the Japanese is always good...

The Prince Karuizawa is the best among all Prince hotels in Karuizawa. The Guest Service Center located right next to the JR Karuizawa station has made the service even better. They will arrange a private wagon to transfer you to/from the hotel when the bus service is not immediately available. This private wagon service is not available for guests who...
