Located 1000 metres above sea level, the Prince Grand Resort Karuizawa is one of the best and most accessible resorts, just an hour's train ride away from Tokyo. There are five hotels within the resort grounds, namely Karuizawa Prince Hotel West, The Prince Villa Karuizawa, The Prince Karuizawa, Karuizawa Asama Prince Hotel, and Karuizawa Prince Hotel East (KPHE).

Boasting a main building as well as cottage accommodations, the 44-year-old KPHE was recently relaunched in July this year, which comes with its new "Neo Forest" architectural concept for guests to relax in a forest-like sanctuary. The addition has led to the hotel's induction into the affiliation of “Small Luxury Hotels of the World”, which is exclusively awarded to just 12 hotels in Japan.

A highlight of staying at KPHE is the opportunity to enjoy the Karuizawa Prince Hotel Ski area. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced ski fanatic, there’s an option for everyone at the ski resort with its offerings over 10 ski trials and 195 snow-making machines. Night adventures are also available during certain seasons in the ski area, where guests can race down snowy mountains in motor buggies and illumination boards.
