[Karuizawa Hoshino area] Spring solo day trip hot spring plan is on sale


In the “Karuizawa Hoshino Area”, a place where people who love nature and culture run by Hoshino Resorts, the “Spring Solo Day Trip Hot Spring Plan” will be on sale from March 20th to May 31st, 2021.

Feel free to experience a hot spring in Karuizawa in the spring

It is said that hot springs, which stay in hot spring areas for a long period of time and are treated by hot springs, have the effect of enhancing “immunity (natural healing power)”. A weakened immune system can easily cause physical discomfort and depression.

Some people may be interested in hot springs, but it is difficult to stay for a long time and the threshold is high. For such people, the “Karuizawa Hoshino Area” will sell a “Spring Solo Day Trip Hot Spring Plan” that allows you to easily take a hot spring without a long-term stay.

The center of the plan is “Hoshino Onsen Tonbo no Yu”, and the period is from March 20th to May 31st, 2021. We have incorporated a breathing method into the hot spring bathing method and prepared veggie water for hydration during bathing so that you can feel the boost of immunity even in a day trip to the hot springs. In addition, body care and lunch that can be selected from 6 stores are included in the plan so that you can fully enjoy your time alone.

Hoshino Onsen Dragonfly Hot Spring

Hoshino Onsen Tonbo-no-Yu, which is the center of the spring solo one-day hot spring plan, is a bathing facility that flows directly from the source, following the flow of Hoshino Onsen, which opened in the Taisho era.

The spring quality is hydrogen carbonate spring and chloride spring, and the hot spring is soft and thick. It is said that when you are soaking in a bathtub, you wash away waste products, and when you get out of the bath, a veil of salt covers your skin and moisturizes it. “Beautiful skin hot water” that has both cleansing and moisturizing.

There is an open-air bath surrounded by natural trees and a spacious indoor bath with large windows.

5 ways to enjoy a one-day hot spring plan for spring

1. Combine the hot spring bathing method with the breathing method to improve immunity
Taking advantage of the rich nature of Karuizawa, we have incorporated several breathing methods such as deep breathing in the clear air into the hot spring bathing method. The breathing method is used to improve immunity from the aspect of improving lung function. We have also prepared the “Hoshino Onsen Tonbo no Yu Bathing Instruction Book”, which summarizes how to enter hot springs and hot / cold baths that warm your body in an easy-to-understand manner along with breathing techniques.

The plan includes a bathing fee and a towel rental fee, so you can come empty-handed on the day and take a bath as many times as you like. There is also a body-friendly “Veggie Water” (bottle is a gift) containing lemon slices, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, etc. for hydration when bathing.

2. Green smoothie that prepares the intestinal environment
Green smoothies are drinks that can be expected to improve the intestinal environment and boost immunity because they can supplement the lack of vegetables and ingest a large amount of dietary fiber.

In this plan, we will offer “Kokopelli” green smoothies in “Harunire Terrace” in the Karuizawa Hoshino area. Kokopelli is a store that sells vegetables and fruits harvested in Karuizawa. The smoothie contains plenty of seasonal vegetables and fruits, and you can fully enjoy the sweetness and sourness of the ingredients.

At Harunire Terrace’s “Tokoyo”, choose one from the soles, shoulders, and neck and loosen it for 30 minutes. With a pleasant stimulus, the body that is stiff due to lack of exercise or stress is released.
*You can change to a 60-minute course as an option.

4. Lunch at 6 selectable stores
For lunch, you can choose from 6 restaurants in the Karuizawa Hoshino area, including Italian and European cuisine. Each store has a lunch menu dedicated to the plan.

One of the 6 stores, “Il Sogno”, recommends “Clams and seasonal vegetables Peperoncino Karasumi flavor”.

Each facility in the Karuizawa Hoshino area is connected by a promenade. After bathing, it is recommended to take a leisurely stroll along the promenade that stretches along the mountain stream.
