Former Mikasa Hotel : 旧三笠ホテル

Karuizawa's Landmark Japanese-built “Western” Hotel

Eastern Nagano

Description

The Mikasa Hotel was built in 1905, the middle of the Meiji era when Western-styled architecture was just starting to enter Japan. It was completely designed and built by Japanese craftsmen using Western design and methods, one of the finest examples of its time. Owing to its careful preservation and particularly unique stairways and handrails, the hotel was designated as a National Treasure.
