Lake Shiozawa is a beautiful area in Japan where you can enjoy everything to the full. From Arts and sport, through to food and culture. All can be enjoyed within stunning natural surroundings.

The area of Lake Shiozawa in Karuizawa is rich with natural hot springs, a variety of outdoor activities, sports facilities, cultural and artistic delights, and an exclusive resort area.

Opus Villa Shiozawa is therefore the perfect choice to enjoy this rich natural environment and elegant lifestyle.


Completed last year (Aug 2022) as a model villa, the developer hopes “everyone can experience a masterpiece that brings together our experience, wisdom, technology and design.”

The architecture and design was created by renowned Niseko & Tokyo architect Christopher Kim.

His creative ideas have resulted in a one-of-a-kind space that blends contemporary beauty with the wilderness.

The design emphasises maximum enjoyment of life in Karuizawa.


OPUS Shiozawa has never been lived in or used outside of being a showcase villa. So this stunning home is completely new for the first buyer.
