10 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

The Japanese are connoisseurs of the art of relaxation, a fact that’s easy to forget when you’re navigating Tokyo streets during rush hour. It’s hard to take it easy in the big city, as it turns out, no matter what country you’re in. To really experience the Japanese talent for unwinding, you’ll need to leave town — about an hour by train from Tokyo, nothing too ambitious — and check into a hotel like Kyu Karuizawa.

Forget about temples and sushi shops: the whole point of coming to Kyu Karuizawa is to check in and stay put. Tranquil and sleek, fresh off an extensive renovation, the hotel is like a minimalist spa where you can spend the night. To minimize unnecessary stress — who wants to wait in line at reception, anyway? — there is no line, and no front desk, just a personal butler waiting by the entrance with flutes of champagne and the keys to your suite. The interiors, outfitted in muted tones of charcoal, white, and beige, are modern and clutter-free. They’re also cozy: this is a place for curling up on a sofa with a book, or for taking a long and guilt-free nap in the middle of the afternoon. Some rooms and suites have a traditional Western-style set-up, while others, with futons and a tatami space, have a Japanese twist. All are served by butlers who do everything from turning down beds and serving tea to furnishing the coffee beans so you can brew a cup in the privacy of your room before heading down to the buffet breakfast. No need to seek out the hotel spa, naturally, because your masseuse comes, on request, to your room.

Since the idea here is to stay in, there’s a good French restaurant and a cocktail bar, chic and intimate, on the premises. The only real reason you might want to venture out of Kyu Karuizawa is to go for a stroll in the peaceful surroundings: just outside the hotel, leafy paths lead to lakes, waterfalls, and mountain vistas. This is the easygoing pace the Japanese are known for, at least outside the hectic urban centers most tourists see. And when you’re ready to plug in again, you’ll be back in Tokyo in no time.

How to get there: Kyu Karuizawa Hotel is located approximately 80 minutes by train from Tokyo via JR Hokuriku Shinkansen; the hotel is a 10-minute drive from Karuizawa Station.
