Nice hotel but needs more frequent shuttle service
Everything was perfect except the shuttle service runs only every 30 minutes, and extremely packed with people. Would have been even more perfect if the hotel could run every 15 minutes shuttle so we can enjoy the onsen in evening as it is far from karuizawa prince hotel.
