幼児を連れた家族旅行で日光へ。 お宿の近くにこちらがあったので 日光東照宮へ歩きで向かいがてら 期待もなくただ入ったのですが それはそれは見事な場所で見とれてしまいました。 入園料かかりますが バカ殿の様な昔ながらの建物の中を じっくり観覧することもでき 古き良き日本をじっくり味わえ 棚ボタ気分に東照宮より感動致しました。 チビでも異空間と大きなお庭に 興奮し楽しんでいる様でした。 冬場は雪景色が綺麗で 春にはお屋敷のど真ん中にそびえ立つ 桜が綺麗だとのことです。 入園料払うだけの価値がある場所は 必見かと思います。 It was so nice place and feel like a back to the past - Edo Jidai-. I could see typical Japanese style and felt that time.

It's a little bit off the map but there is a busstop if don't feel like walking. Quite, modest house as one would expect in Japan. Quite interesting video to see about the house and the emperor. Small Japanese garden.

Amazing building and beautiful garden. Worth going to visit after you have seen the shrines and surrounds. Not too busy or expensive which is great. And not too far from the shrines too

Beautiful to visit on rainy days and sunny days. I really love the Imperial Villa, and therefore always go back for a visit when visiting Nikko. Don't miss the beautiful view through the open doors and a walk in the garden . It's magical.

Nikko Tamozawa Imperial Villa is built around the former Edo residence. It was a very big villa with beautiful garden. The entrance fee will covered the villa and the garden. Too bad when I came the trees were not blooming yet. This place is recommended...More

Very well laid out and enormous villa, beautifully restored. Staff were very helpful, and the property gives an insight into the life of the recent Japanese emperor and imperial family.

Every architecture fan must love this place. Not only the building but all the secrets behind the views, why the windows are set like that and more. You need about an hour to listen the guide but it's great to hear and see the story...More

We were not planning to visit this villa but stumbled upon it after a full day of visiting shrines. It was a lovely surprise. The gardens are lovely, with ancient trees and a stream winding through it. We visited in winter and it was nice...More

Its definitely worth visiting the this Villa and Park as its so different from the other attractions in Nikko - an insight into a totally different world. All the rooms are beautiful and have been immaculately restored. They are of course empty of furniture but...More
