2023.08.05

Hoshinoya Karuizawa will offer “Karuizawa Kinshu no Kenko Stay” from September 1 to November 30, 2023. Before the weaving experience, the hotel will offer a new experience called “Tour of Autumn Colors in the Valley,” in which guests will tour the grounds with a gardener and learn about the richness of colors woven by nature in autumn. This will help to condition the body and mind while enhancing mental sensitivity and cultivating the ability to cope with seasonal changes.

"Tour of Autumn Colors in the Valley" to learn about the richness of colors woven by nature in autumn.

At Hoshinoya Karuizawa, the grounds are decorated with different shades of autumn leaves in different colors in the fall. In this experience, you will tour the grounds with a gardener while listening to the characteristics of the plants and the gardener’s thoughts on the garden.

"Shinshu Ueda Tsumugi weaving experience" where you choose threads in colors that resonate with you and weave them together.

In the “Teahouse,” a Japanese-style house on the premises, participants will experience weaving under the guidance of a traditional craftsman (*2) from the long-established Ueda Tsumugi (silk) workshop.
The weaved fabrics will be finished by the craftsman and made into a color pocketbook for your heart or a sakosh to carry your important things, which will be delivered to your home at a later date.

Iide Town, Yamagata Prefecture] “Submerged Forest of Lake Shirakawa,” a Mysterious Spring-Only Scene 

The mysterious scenery of Lake Shirakawa in the town of Iide in southern Yamagata Prefecture can be seen only during two months in spring. In spring, a large amount of melt water flows into Lake Shirakawa from the Iide mountain range, one of Japan’s 100 most famous mountains, where there is heavy snowfall. When the lake is full of water, it creates a fantastic sight of white willow trees as if they are growing out of the water.

[Hoshinoya Tokyo] “New Year’s Kabuki Stay” brings the hospitality of an Edo Period theatrical teahouse to the present day.

Hoshinoya Tokyo, a Japanese-style inn located in Otemachi, Tokyo, will again this year host the “New Year Kabuki Stay” program, a two-day and one-night stay from January 5 to 26, 2024.
For people living in Edo, one of their New Year’s pleasures was to watch Kabuki, and it was a chic way to spend the New Year. Theatrical teahouses supported this way of enjoying Kabuki. In addition to arranging tickets to the theater, the teahouses delighted patrons by providing a complete range of services, including plot notes, tea, sweets, makunouchi box lunches, and snacks and drinks (*1). Hoshinoya Tokyo offers a stay to celebrate the New Year with hospitality similar to the theatrical teahouses of the time.

[Shinjuku Gyoen x Naked] NAKED Autumn Foliage in Shinjuku Gyoen 2023 to be held

From November 22 (Wed) to December 3 (Sun), 2023, an autumn foliage lighting event will be held at Shinjuku Gyoen. Following the cherry blossom event this spring, Shinjuku Gyoen and Naked will collaborate again this fall for the autumn foliage event. Shinjuku Gyoen, one of Tokyo’s most famous gardens, is one of the few places in the city where visitors can enjoy the autumn leaves. The 200-meter-long rows of plane trees, the best maple tree spot in the city, Momijiyama, and the “Middle Pond,” with its spectacular reflection in the pond, will offer a world where the autumn leaves of Shinjuku Gyoen and Naked’s art and food are fused together.
