Hotel Kajima no Mori is situated in the woods of Karuizawa, renowned as a lush retreat from Japan's blistering summertime heat. Although only one hour from Tokyo by train, total tranquility prevails. Around the hotel, the silence is broken only by the sounds of a nearby brook. In its 33,000 square meter garden, Mother Nature stages a perpetual spectacle in four acts: spring, summer, winter and fall. Designed to achieve harmony with its surroundings, this charming hotel consists of a set of discrete two-floor guest facilities. A golf course and tennis court offer year-round fun.
