Still not convinced? Here’s more about the prizes:

HOSHINOYA Karuizawa is built like a little town, with everything to make it a paradise on earth. The rooms are centred around a water feature that contributes to the magic of the place, especially at nightfall, when the candles spread out across the water light up.

In the middle of the day, you can stop for a moment on the garden terrace to sample a Dango kebab, delicious rice balls skewered on sticks and coated with sweet soy sauce.
Later in the day, it’s time to enjoy a glass of champagne before your meal, so you can fully appreciate the sunset.

HOSHINOYA Karuizawa serves a very high standard of kaiseki cuisine in its restaurant (Kasuke). This cuisine, called Yama-no-kaiseki, is based on local ingredients sourced from the nearby mountains, rivers and fields.
