WELLNESS: Amidst the Trees

Hidden amidst the trees in mountainous Karuizawa, Shishi-Iwa is Japan’s newest rural retreat, designed to blend seamlessly with its woodland surroundings. Conceived by award-winning architect Shigeru Ban, Shishi-Iwa’s two-story, ten-bedroom structure dips and winds its way between the tree trunks, creating shaded courtyards, secluded gardens and airy, asymmetric bedrooms. Attracting leisure and business travellers alike, Shishi-Iwa aims to immerse guests in Japan’s peaceful, rural landscape. Breakfast bento boxes, wagyu beef barbecues, biking tours and forest treks lure even the most reluctant visitors out of their rooms.

Shishi-Iwa House: 2147 – 646 Shishi-Iwa Nagakura, Karuizawa-machi Kitasaku-gun, Nagano
