Recommended Quiet Spot in International Summer Resort, OkuNikko ;)


What a beautiful fresh greenery this time of year!


Take time to gaze at the shores of Lake Chuzenji while thinking back to the days when yacht races were held.

"In the summer, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs moves into Nikko."

Did you know that there was a time when it was said so?

From the Taisho era (1912-1926) to the early Showa era (1926-1926), many foreign people visited Okunikko, an international summer resort, to escape the hot and humid summer heat.
Nishirokuban Enchi is a place where you can feel such history.

Nishirokuban Enchi is the former site of the Nishirokuban Villa, which was once the base of the Tokyo Angling End Country Club, an international social club visited by members of the royal family, diplomats, and many other distinguished guests.

The villa was built by Thomas Glover, known for the "Glover House" in Nagasaki, and later rebuilt into a clubhouse by Hans Hunter, but unfortunately the building was destroyed by fire in 1940.

Fly fishing and yacht races, flying boats circling, people cooling off by the shimmering lakeside....
Why don't you enjoy the pleasant breeze blowing through this place and think back to the scenery of those days?
