The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko 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. Offering verdant surroundings coupled with pristine accommodations, this hidden gem beckons discerning travelers with a decadent array of nature-rich adventures, healing wellness experiences, and other one-of-a-kind programming for a bucket-list winter retreat.
Ideally located 2.5 hours north by rail or car from Tokyo, Nikko is a dreamy winter destination particularly for its powder snow within the Kanto region, which rivals that of Hokkaido. Removed from bustling crowds and tourists, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko is centrally situated within UNESCO-designated Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, touting 94 premium guest rooms and suites. Various on-site touchpoints beckon luxury, including four dining experiences that manifest Japanese craftsmanship and precision: The Japanese Restaurant for all-day dining within a traditional atmosphere with discerning taste; Lakehouse for a flavorful take on Western dishes showcasing local ingredients; The Bar, which offers a stylish respite for fine whiskeys and libations; The Lobby Lounge, for light bites and Afternoon Tea overlooking a stunning garden.
Perched at the nexus of intuitive hospitality and pristine nature, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko offers an array of winter experiences that cater to adventure seekers, families and those who are simply inquisitive. Exceptional programming changes seasonally and provides deeper access into the ever-changing destination:
