A Visit to Tamozawa Imperial Villa

Traditional Japanese residence and garden in Nikko

Ekaterina Bespyatova   2018/04/16によって

I’ve been to Nikko many times but somehow never got around to visiting the Tamozawa Imperial Villa before. It turned out to be well worth a visit. The place has a quiet atmosphere and nice garden, and the residence itself is impressive. In fact, it’s one of the largest of its kind in Japan.

This time I drove, but I think it’s walkable in about twenty minutes from the Tōshō-gū area. There's also a bus stop nearby, but if you're visiting in high season and want to continue afterwards to Lake Chūzenji, you're risking not being able to get on that same bus again (it will be packed with people, especially on a weekend). So, I'd recommend to either have your own wheels or make it just a trip to central Nikko without going up the Irohazaka road to the mountains. There are plenty of things to see and do around the Tamozawa Villa to occupy you for a full day.

My name is Ekaterina and I enjoy looking at the world through my camera’s viewfinder. I travel a lot and capture what I find beautiful – in nature, culture, people. Japan is a place I have a special connection with – I’ve spent 7 years living in Tokyo and I’ve travelled across the country extensively, often to remote and less known locations. I have a large collection of photos from years of my Japan travels that I hope to eventually put online. And that collection constantly grows, because I always go back – there’s so much yet to discover. ​Check out my travel blog Amenohi Travels to see more. ​*** ​Здравствуйте, меня зовут Екатерина, и я люблю смотреть на мир через объектив фотоаппарата. Я много путешествую и снимаю то, что мне кажется красивым - природу, людей, созданное людьми. ​С Японией у меня давняя и глубокая связь. Я прожила 7 лет в Токио, объездила всю страну из конца в конец и регулярно возвращаюсь за новыми впечатлениями. За годы путешествий по Японии у меня скопилась большая коллекция фотографий, которые я планирую постепенно сделать доступными онлайн. Своими впечатлениями от поездок я делюсь здесь - а также на страницах своего сайта Amenohi Travels.
