KARUIZAWA - Convenient Family Winter Getaway
Have a blast in the snow at Karuizawa, the ultimate family winter wonderland. Barely an hour’s train ride from Tokyo and you’re ready to hit the slopes — the perfect resort destination for weekends or extended holidays. From skiing and snowboarding to shopping, hot springs and even golf, the resort teems with fun.
Karuizawa is one of the few ski resorts in Japan to offer both hotel rooms and individual cottages. Conveniently located just minutes from the bullet train station and ski area, Karuizawa Prince Hotel pampers you with deluxe service and amenities in a serene, family-friendly setting. Although there is plenty for mom and dad to enjoy, the resort is a child’s paradise. After a day in the snow, turn the kids loose bowling, playing arcade games, making crafts or enjoying outdoor nighttime activities.
Karuizawa has hosted both Winter and Summer Olympic events — the only town in the world with this distinction — and it knows how to entertain. Explore the town and discover fantastic restaurants, super outlet shopping and other joys of this charming getaway, or venture into the hills for an exhilarating hike in the snow.
