[Hoshinoya Karuizawa] Tanada Lounge, an extraordinary all-day lounge where you can enjoy the changing of time and seasons, is now open.


Tanada Lounge, an all-day lounge, will open in Hoshinoya Karuizawa on 1 June 2024. It will offer a variety of ways to spend time according to the changing times and seasons, such as waking up with a cup of coffee while gazing at the terraced rice fields at sunrise, or enjoying afternoon tea with the sound of water during the day as the sun shines through the trees.

Special seats with a total of 28 seats overlooking the terraced rice fields from different angles.

The valley village of Hoshinoya Karuizawa was created with an imaginary ‘another Japan’ in mind: ‘What if the country had modernised while valuing more Japaneseness’, or ‘What if the Japanese culture had matured to the present day?

The terraced rice field lounge has three different locations: a private deck surrounded by greenery in the middle of the terraced rice fields, a sunken kotatsu to enjoy the view over the terraced rice fields, and an open terrace overlooking the entire terraced rice fields. This 28-seat lounge allows guests to enjoy the subtle changes of the seasons in different locations.

A range of experiences that capture the changing seasons and immerse you in the moment to your heart's content

The scenery and atmosphere change dramatically depending on the time of day: early in the morning when the air is clear, during the day when the sun shines through the trees and sparkles on the water, and at night when the terraced rice fields are illuminated by a star-filled sky. To help you enjoy the best of each time of year, we offer a variety of ways to spend your time.
