Discovered in 1914, the Hoshinoya Hot Springs have been delivering “water for beautiful skin” to locals and explorers alike. Now, a modern spirit has awakened at HOSHINOYA Karuizawa, complete with dining for all tastes, and a decided calm to last far beyond any visit.

Hoshinoya is an ancient place, but the village of HOSHINOYA Karuizawa has taken that history, and (in a very perfectly refined Japanese way) re-imagined it as a minimalist, modern place of solace for global wanderers of the 21st-century.

The timeless hot springs invigorate and center the way they always have, but there now exists a complementary chic hideaway with all the accouterments one could desire. 77 sleek villas line the river and hills looking out on serene nature, while the Tombo-no-yu hot springs, spa and Meditation Bath await to soothe both mind and body.

After you bring your whole self back to perfection, choose to either venture out on a day’s (or night’s) eco-tour, or leave the wilds unknown, and sample a variety of subtle cuisine. French, formal Japanese, and laidback Japanese (noodle lovers rejoice) options await eyes larger then associated stomachs.

In the off hours, lounge in the library, stroll the boardwalk, or simply find a quiet place in the woods to breath deeply — and just be.
