What a little gem! We had a very pleasant stay in this “forest house”. Lots of love was put into every detail of this home. Super comfy bed, quiet and peaceful area, yet close to everything. Great hosts made us feel very welcome. We rented bikes at the train station and loved cycling around to explore. Thanks very much!

The host was a very friendly and excellent. His hospitality was top notch and we had a very relaxing time there. The rooms were cozy, clean and nicely renovated, while the exterior of the house kept it's original look. The house is conveniently located within walking distance from Karuizawa station, although we had rented a car for our trip to drive to other places around Karuizawa. The kitchen was also newly renovated, and fully equipped with all the essentials that we needed to cook dinner.

It was a big pleasure for us to stay for three days at your pretty and cozy house. We loved the atmosphere and every detail. The bed is very comfortable and we had a music box - I never had a Bluetooth box at my room. Thanks for three wonderful days!

What an amazing place to stay! The property is a quick 5 minute taxi from the Karuizawa Shinkansen station (790 yen), and a very short walk back to the main street. The rooms are immaculately clean and comfortable - as is the communal area. The hosts Francisco and Koji are incredibly helpful and always go above and beyond to ensure comfort. Enjoy your stay!

This place was absolutely amazing, traditional home nested in the middle of the forest, but renovated with great taste and fitted with all the amenities you could need. The host went above and beyond to make our stay perfect by giving recommendations for the best food in town and things to do around. Our only regret is that we didn’t book an additional night.

The environment near by the house is really cozy. The host is really thoughtful when we need help. Will definitely choose the same accommodation next time!

大変素晴らしい空間です。 ホストの人柄とセンスがとても良く、それが部屋や設備、食器やオブジェなどにも反映されています。 観光やショッピングへのアクセスも非常に良い場所ですが、とても静かで落ち着いた場所です。 きっと再度訪れたくなる場所になる事でしょう。
