The luxury hotel debuted July 2020 as a brand-new hotel amidst a UNESCO World Heritage Site, overlooking Lake Chūzenji and Mount Nantai within Japan’s Northern Kanto region (2.5 hours north of Tokyo by rail or car). From cultural rituals to outdoor adventures, to cherry blossom-inspired culinary specials, and more, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko is the ultimate bucket-list destination this spring.
With blooming Sakura (cherry blossom) trees blanketing the serene landscape (typically towards end of April), Nikko is an idyllic destination for springtime, offering an immersive experience in a transient tunnel of pink.
