The Kanaya Hotel in Nikko

History, nature, and plenty of charm

This Western classical hotel used to be a popular social hangout for Western executives, Hollywood stars, and politicians in early Meiji (around 1860-1900). People escaped from hot humid Tokyo and enjoyed the cool summer at the Kanaya Hotel. If you stay at the Kanaya Hotel, I recommend that you play the role of “early bird”. The short walk down to the riverbank in the morning is so special. You will never forget the mystic view of the Shinkyo red bridge, and the emerald green river.
