British Embassy Villa Memorial Park


This former summer retreat of the British Embassy was built in 1896. It has since been restored to reflect its original appearance. Exhibits inside inform visitors about British culture. Views of Lake Chuzenji and the surrounding nature are spectacular, particularly from the second-floor veranda.

The Lake Chuzenji area was a popular summer resort area for embassies and wealthy foreigners in the early 20th century.

How to get there:
50 minutes from Nikko Station or Tobu-Nikko Station on buses bound for Chuzenji Onsen/Yumoto Onsen to Chuzenji Onsen. From there, walk about 35 minutes.
