    Tamozawa imperial villa at prewar days was his mark. Restore the shape in Taisho era to recreate it there. The look is modern Japan with a traditional Western. Only in modern times, such luxuries are impossible in front of it and had various emotions. It would be very clean.

    This place was beautiful, it was still quite cold at the end of winter/ start of spring. The garden was still really pretty and overall a lovely experience. The staff were friendly, and the man that showed us in was so excited to show us around outside

    Beautiful Villa and gardens. Make sure to get the audio tour to learn a little about the villa and the recent renovations. It's worthwhile seeing.

    Definitely worth a visit, if you are just a little bit into history and Japanese architecture.

Where to stay in Nikko

Rich in history, culture, and nature, you'll be pleased to find that Nikko also boasts a rich variety of accommodations. Competition may be pretty fierce at peak times, but make your reservation early and you'll be able to find somewhere to sleep that suits your style. Luxury hotels and boutiques with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) never stray too far from the river, while hostels and guesthouses tend to be tucked away on side streets, and up in the north of town. Mid-range and standard hotels lie close to the main train stations and by the main plazas.
