The Prince Villa Karuizawa
Luxury lodging in the woods
The Prince Villa Karuizawa is a luxury lodging resort that combines rental cottages and exclusive hotel services in a naturally beautiful environment. Located in the upscale mountain resort town of Karuizawa, a two hour drive from Tokyo, it offers the perfect getaway for skiers and nature lovers.
Prince Hotels Inc. is a Japanese hospitality chain with a line-up of 42 hotels in Japan and seven overseas. “The Prince” is the Prince Hotels’ flagship brand offering quality facilities and services to high-end customers.
Solid wood was chosen as the building material for The Prince Villa Karuizawa to provide the guests with relaxing stays in perfect harmony with nature. Honkarakenne, the Finnish provider of high-quality log homes, was chosen as the partner worthy of “the Prince” name. All buildings were built with Honka’s laminated logs to create a modern, natural living environment with the wonderful scent of genuine wood, high indoor air quality and a relaxing, cosy atmosphere. The interior decoration is bright, simple and cosy – in true Scandinavian style.

Wonderful place for family trip
We stayed in this wonderful villa for 3 nights, and the only thing I would complain about is that we couldn't stay there forever……The lodge is spacious and cozy, located in a beatiful woods and so apart from each other.
The Prince Villa Karuizawa consists of 20 villas available for long-term stays and the Center House providing services exclusively for the guests.
The 20 villas of the Prince Villa Karuizawa consist of three types of cottages: one-storey villas for six people, two-storey villas for eight people and two-storey villas with a private hot tub for eight people. The villas have been designed to accommodate three generations of families or families and friends.
The Prince Villa Karuizawa offers various quality services including My Chef, a private catering service where a chef will cook and serve meals at the guest’s villa. The services also include various private lessons, including tennis, golf and skiing.
Experience the good night’s sleep only a genuine log home can provide and book your own villa.
