Nice small shops by the river
Oct 2019 • Family
A lovely and pleasant place to visit, especially for dog lovers. Many visitors walk their dogs there and obviously they are welcome in most of the restaurants and cafés there. The shops carry interesting souvenirs and gifts. Our favourite is the one which sells beautiful hand-made wooden gifts.

Such a nice place to chill out
Oct 2019
We took an early bus out from the train station to the Hoshino Area, and while most restaurants were still closed, there were a couple of places open for coffee. The whole area is not large, and you can wonder around in tranquility. We saw quite a few locals with their furry friends. Sipping coffee and staring out into the greenery was one of the highlights of our trip!

Wonderful hotspring

Very very nice outdoor onsen. The water is high quality (told you could actually drink it). There are multiple pots indoor as well. The venue is very clean and staff are professional. Really nice experience. ♨️

Heavenly fall sceneries with amazing red leaves
Oct 2018
It is a wonderful place to visit during fall, the red leaves are just amazing and the weather is cool enough to enjoy the hot spring. Food is also exquisite, but that's expected anywhere in Japan.

In LOVE with Karuizawa
Feb 2019
My family left their luggage on the station as soon as we arrived in Karuizawa train station! They were WOW by the ski site at night. The old town Ginza is a jewel...we enjoyed every minutes. We spent real good quality time in Prince Ski Resort. Great shopping in Prince Outlet Mall with good bargain.

A beautiful hotel for wedding
Jul 2018 • Family
My sister's wedding was held in this hotel, overall the hotel and food was really great and luxurious, a very memorable experience for my sister. Just the photo taking is very restrictive even we paid for the whole package to the hotel photograher, family photo with brothers and sisters with the wedding couples was even not allowed, only parents were allowed.

Early morning and evenings are highly recommended!
Oct 2018 • Family
We stayed at the naka-karuizawa area within walking distance to the Hoshinoya area (more details at petitetravel.net). The Hoshinoya area is quite crowded with day trippers in the afternoon and may give the impression of being quite a touristy place. However, an early morning or evening visit does allow one to better appreciate the Hoshinoya area.

In the early morning, the Harunire terrace and Bleston court areas are quiet and one can hear the birds and enjoy the forests on a morning walk. In the evening, the naka-karuizawa area is pretty quiet and the Harunire terrace is a charming place to chill out over coffee and to watch the stars.

The hoshino area includes Picchio nature centre where one can visit the wild bird sanctuary in a forest.

My only quibble is that the Hoshino Tombo no Yu Onsen was full of people as it was open to the public after morning hours. The onsen would be enjoyable mainly for Hoshinoya guests as they have exclusive access in the mornings without the crowds.

Enjoy nature, meals and hot springs(ONSEN)
Sep 2018 • Family
We went to Karuizawa on our way to Japan. We have heard that there is a wonderful hotel called ”Hoshinoya" in Karuizawa. There was an amusement "Hoshino area" around the hotel. We took a walk through the wonderful forest. We had delicious Japanese food. We enjoyed a quality hot spring"tombo-no-yu". They are designed to satisfy the visitors. Very very nice!!

我們在美妙的森林裡散步。 我喜歡美味的日本料理,麵包,葡萄酒和啤酒。 我進入了一個優質的溫泉。 推薦給熱愛大自然,想要高質量旅行的人。

私たちは日本旅行の途中に、軽井沢に寄りました。軽井沢に星のやという素敵なホテルがあると聞いていたから。ホテルの周辺に、アミューズメント「星野エリア」があった。私たちは素晴らしい森を散策し、おいしい和食を食べ、質の良い温泉に入った。訪れた人が満足するようそれらは設計されているのだと思う。とてもとても素晴らしい!
