hoshinoya karuizawa

after tokyo, we headed to calm, quiet wilderness of karuizawa.  we had saved up a ton of credit card points so we were able to splurge and stay at the hoshinoya.  it was one of the most spectacular resorts i have been to. the service, the food, the grounds, and the rooms – everything was incredibly special.  i wish we were there longer than 2 nights.

tokyo 1

we just returned from an epic trip to japan, so the next umpteen posts will be dedicated to what we saw and ate.  there are few places that have had such a profound impact on me.  literally every day we have been back, i keep thinking of small details we experienced and how quickly i can go back.  it is truly a spectacular place.
