Tokyo Disney Resort®, Skiing and Shopping
Are you looking for a family ski holiday with a dash of Disney magic? Spend 3 nights at the Karuizawa Prince Hotel West in the eastern Nagano prefecture. This region boasts 90% sunny days throughout the season – perfect for families who like clear skies. The resort’s advanced snow-making facilities ensure you’ll always be able to hit the slopes.
And when you need a break from the slopes you can hit the shops! The 240-shop Karuizawa Prince Shopping Complex offers a great respite from the ski action.
This tour caters to complete beginners. Your lift pass, skis and clothing are all included, and a licensed English-speaking instructor will teach you everything you need to know. It’s skiing made easy and hassle-free.
The fun begins in Tokyo Disney Resort, home to the best theme parks in the world. Then, swap Mickey Mouse ears for ski poles, as the bullet train rockets you to Mount Asama!
We recommended this tour for families who’d like another option should the kids (or the parents!) need a break from the snow. Karuizawa is a great place to simply enjoy the winter atmosphere.
With lift passes, skis and clothing hire for the family included – all you need is a sense of adventure!
Learn to ski the right way with a fully certified English-speaking instructor.
You’ll learn all the techniques and tricks you’ll need to be comfortable exploring the slopes of Karuizawa.
Karuizawa is a great place for your kids fall in love with the snow. The resort has 2 kid snow parks ensuring that they’ll be entertained throughout the trip!

Need a break from the snow action? The Karuizawa Prince Shopping Plaza has hundreds of shops to explore, including a selection of outlet stores and restaurants.
Your hotel accommodation is Ski-in/Ski-out. Enjoy direct access to the ski lifts right from your hotel. Don’t waste a moment catching transportation to and from the mountain – it’s a minimum hassle with maximum time on the slopes.
Take the high-speed “Asama” shinkansen train between Tokyo and Karuizawa. It’s just 80 minutes from the city to the mountain! Karuizawa Prince Hotel Ski Resort is one of the easiest accessible resorts from Tokyo
After arriving at Daiwa Roynet Hotel Tokyo Ariake, be greeted by our Kintetsu representative, who’ll assist you with checking in.*
We recommend exploring Ariake Garden, an entertainment and shopping complex close to the hotel. The complex boasts hundreds of shops, a kids play area and over 50 restaurants.
Rest up and get ready for five days packed with adventure!
*Please arrive at the hotel by 3 pm.
It’s Disney time! This tour offers the flexibility of letting your family choose between a day at Tokyo Disneyland® or Tokyo DisneySea®. Whichever park you choose, you’ll enjoy a “must-see” Disney experience combined with first-class Japanese hospitality.
Tokyo Disneyland® is the first Disney Park built outside of the US. It is modelled closely after the original parks in California. Recommended if you want the classic Disneyland experience and haven’t been to the parks in the US and have younger kids.
Tokyo DisneySea® is the second park at the resort. With more rides aimed at slightly older kids and different lands to see, we recommend DisneySea if you’ve already visited the parks in the US and have older kids.
Whichever park you choose, you’ll enjoy a “must-see” Disney experience combined with first-class Japanese hospitality.
A private mini-bus will take you to this unforgettable experience
After a day of Disney magic, make your way back to the hotel by local train with the prepaid IC cards provided.
Just take the essentials with you to Karuizawa and enjoy the freedom of packing light! You can leave the rest of your luggage at your Tokyo hotel when checking out.
Your private mini-bus will take you to Tokyo Station, where you’ll board the iconic shinkansen (bullet train) bound for Karuizawa, Nagano.
Your resort hotel is a short transfer from the station.
In the evening, enjoy an included buffet dinner at the resort.
After breakfast, it’s time to take your first steps into the world of skiing! An English-speaking instructor will start your family on the right track with a 2-hour ski lesson, teaching you all the basics to give you the confidence to explore.
In the afternoon, put your new skills to the test and start to explore the slopes on your own.
Your first day of skiing is bound to result in sore muscles. So take advantage of the resort’s indoor onsen (hot spring), where you can relax and reflect on a fantastic day.
With a little training under your belt, it’s time to head out and try your new skills on the mountain. There’s no pressure; take it slow and steady!
First, familiarise yourself with the trails of the mountain. We recommend the trails marked with a green dot. That indicates they’re designed for beginners. The other trails are for more advanced skiers – perhaps on your next holiday!
There’s nothing better than exploring the snowy landscape with your family. You can take in the views together, laugh at each other when you fall and help each other get back up again. Skiing is a great bonding experience – no matter what your skill level is.
After a massive day on the mountain, you’re sure to be exhausted. Enjoy an included farewell buffet dinner at the hotel and relax (and maybe have another soak in the onsen!)
By now, we hope you’re hooked on skiing and the beauty of the pristine ski fields of Japan. Good news – there’s time for one final morning session of skiing before heading back to Tokyo in the afternoon.
The complimentary hotel bus will take you back to Karuizawa station to board the bullet train bound for Tokyo.
You’ll return to your hotel via private taxi, where you can collect your stored luggage before checking in for your final night.
The tour concludes after breakfast at the hotel.
Enjoy the rest of your trip!
This hotel is easily accessible via Kokusai-Tenjijō Station on the Rinkai Line and Ariake Station on the Yurikamome Line. Enjoy staying in a relaxing, spacious Executive room in the sophisticated Tokyo Ariake area.
Deluxe Terrace Room
The Karuizawa Prince Hotel West Premium Wing is tucked way at the foot of Mount Asama. A brand-new Wing, opened in early 2021, this is a perfect place to relax after a long day on the slopes. Try the Momiji Hot Spring, a hot spring building with an outdoor bath.
