About KRC

Located in the historic town of Karuizawa, a famous mountain resort area, Karuizawa Retreat Center (KRC) is a mere one-hour bullet train ride from central Tokyo. With cool mountain summers, vibrant autumn hues, and picturesque snowy landscapes, KRC promises a delightfully scenic getaway 10 months of the year. The cabin-style housing perfectly accommodates both group retreats and families seeking rest and refreshment, and also has the capacity to facilitate seminars, trainings, and conferences.

KRC is available for reservation to any Evangelical Christian family, church, or mission group (and their guests) desiring a mountain retreat or vacation. We look forward to being your hosts at Karuizawa Retreat Center!
