THINGS TO DO

Bespoke tours, insider introductions and curated creative events: there’s always plenty to do at SSH.

Some visitors want to simply slow down and soak up the setting. Others prefer something more active. SSH offers a range of bespoke insider activities which can be tailored to whatever you happen to be in the mood for. SSH also stages private retreats and a calendar of intimate creative events.

WALKING
TOUR

Inhale, exhale - and enjoy the very best nature spots in the region

Whether it’s a gentle forest amble or a more intense sunrise mountain ascent, staff can curate the perfect bespoke walking tour for each individual guest, based on SSH’s extensive inside knowledge of local mountains, national parks, rivers and waterfalls.

SSH
ONSEN
TOUR

Soak your body in the restorative waters of a hot spring onsen

A visit to Karuizawa is perhaps incomplete without at least one muscle-melting soak in the steaming waters of a volcanic hot spring onsen bath. The region is home to a range of onsen baths hidden in mountains and forests – and SSH staff are on hand around-the-clock to help get you there.

PRIVATE
RETREATS

There are few more peaceful settings for a private gathering, be it a corporate wellness break or a family retreat. The hotel can be rented out in its entirety, or by cluster, depending on group size. Please contact SSH directly to discuss your requirements.
