Location: The Ritz-Carlton Nikko, set on the shores of Lake Chuzenji and in the shadow of Mount Nantai, is all about natural beauty through a luxury lens.
Hot Springs: Ritz-Carlton Nikko is the only Ritz-Carlton branded onsen in the world, drawing waters for its hot spring facilities directly from Nikko Yumoto Onsen, which has been an established hot spring destination for over 1,200 years.
Dining: The property's four dining and drinking venues aim to elevate fresh, locally-sourced Tochigi ingredients by incorporating regional flavors into Japanese dishes, Western plates, the signature Ritz-Carlton afternoon tea, as well as original cocktails.
The 614-square-foot Lake Chuzenji View King room has an open layout, a king-size bed, floor-to-ceiling windows, an engawa, and a bathroom with a rain shower and separate bathtub. Views of the lake can be enjoyed from the porch, the bedroom, and the bathroom.
The 614-square-foot Lake Chuzenji View Double room has an open layout, two double beds, floor-to-ceiling windows, an engawa, and a bathroom with a rain shower and separate bathtub. Views of the lake can be enjoyed from the porch, the bedroom, and the bathroom.

The Lake Chuzenji View Suite is 1,238 square feet in size, offering sweeping views of Lake Chuzenji and Mount Nantai. The suite is composed of a bedroom with a king-size bed, a furnished balcony that looks out to the lake and mountains, a separate living room, a powder room and full bathroom, an engawa, a walk-in closet, and a large bathroom with a bathtub, separate rain shower, and double vanity.
The Ritz-Carlton Suite covers 2,982 square feet and boasts panoramic views of both Lake Chuzenji and Mount Nantai. The suite is comprised of a spacious kitchen and dining room, a bedroom with a king-size bed, a gym and massage treatment room, a separate living room, a furnished porch, and a large bathroom featuring an oversized bathtub with a view, a rain shower, and a double vanity.
The fully-equipped fitness studio is open 24 hours a day, offering cardio machines and weights for a well-rounded workout.
A prime attraction of a stay in Nikko, the Ritz-Carlton's onsen facilities include an indoor bath, open-air bath, dry cypress sauna, and a spa lounge. The water's metasilicic acid acts as a natural moisturizer and promotes skin rejuvenation.
The spa is a serene haven featuring a variety of treatments. One signature option is the Moist Pearl Facial, which uses iridescent pearl nacre work to soften skin and reinforce a pearl-like glow.
Themed around a boathouse retreat, Lakehouse serves Western dishes in a nostalgic courtyard setting. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring nature indoors, while terrace seating nestles diners in the lush forest.
As the sun starts to descend, The Bar is a casual and relaxed setting in which sip at a strong drink. The specialties here are Japanese whiskies, which are served in fine glassware over ice made using Nikko's pure water, or in creative cocktails inspired by the region.
Befitting its name, The Japanese Restaurant specializes in traditional national cuisines which make the most of regional produce. Guests can sample multi-course Kaiseki menus, sushi crafted from fish sourced from Tokyo's famous Toyosu Market and Nikko's own waters, as well as live Teppanyaki cooking. There is also a private dining room that seats 10.
Comfy sofas, a fireplace, and a collection of artworks and books create a cozy atmosphere in The Lobby Lounge. Guests can tuck into lunch, dinner, or a signature afternoon tea experience here.
