概要:

Why is Nikko famous in the world?
You can also find the answer in Oku-Nikko.

Ernest Satow, British diplomat, loved deeply Oku-Nikko, especially Lake Chuzenji, and built a cottage by the lake.
This cottage was used as a villa by the British Embassy, and other Embassies or Foreigners built also one.
Like this, Oku-Nikko became International Summer Resort.

Let’s relive the feeling of International Summer Resort in Oku-Nikko, with international character!

This villa was built in 1928 by Czech architect Antonin Raymon, and used until 1997.

He used cedar bark on the walls and the ceilings, and you can find japanese design like checkerboard pattern (Ichimatsu motif) and arrow shaft (Yabane motif).
This is the dignified building of modern design in harmony with nature, and restored furniture is so quaint.

This was built in the model of American Resort Waterside, for an incidental facility of Chuzenji Kaneya Hotel, formerly Nikko Kanko Hotel that was used as GHQ's recreation facility.
