Ritz Carlton Nikko

The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko

Perfectly located on the eastern shore of Lake Chuzenji, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko opened in July 2020 and has fully embraced the essence of Nikko. The hotel has skillfully woven Zen elements of Japanese aesthetics into its modern design to allow guests to enjoy the gorgeous scenery of Nikko in truly luxurious surroundings.

Each of the 94 carefully designed rooms at the Ritz-Carlton Nikko offers plenty of space, with even the entry level rooms having a generous 57 sqm. Guests can enjoy the alluring surroundings from their engawa (a type of Japanese veranda) or even from the open-plan Japanese bathroom, complete with rainforest shower.

The hotel has a range of hot spring baths, both indoor and outdoor, as well as its own signature Spa.

There are a variety of interesting activities available to guests, which incorporate nature, culture and spirituality. These include morning zazen meditation with monks from nearby Chuzenji Temple, private visits to the temple itself, meditation under mountain waterfalls and of course, plenty of water based activities on Lake Chuzenji for those wanting a bit of adventure.

Japanese tradition and craftmanship steer the dining experiences at the hotel. Ingredients from local suppliers are used extensively and every dish and drink served to guests offers a reflection of the culture’s appreciation for beauty and design.

Within walking distance of Nikko’s main sights, tastefully designed with Japanese aesthetics in mind, and working with locals to provide once in a lifetime experiences, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko is ready to ensure its guests have an unforgettable time in Japan.
