“Winter Visit”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Even on a cold January day, the Summer Imperial Villa is a beautiful place. The clean lined meticulous craftsmanship demonstrates the talent and care of the original builders. We were impressed how simplicity in design could so please the eye. The winter garden and bare trees outlined the wandering path ways and water features. We'll worth a visit.

“素晴らしい/STRONGLY RECOMMENDED”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

日光には何度か行っておりましたが、あまり関心がなかったので、今回初めて行きました。サプライズでした。

三階御展望室は江戸紀州藩邸にあった建物で、19世紀初頭に建設されたものと聞きました。19世紀から20世紀の日本の建築技術の粋を見ることができます。
東照宮同様、国の内外を問わず、その価値をもっとアピールするべきだと思います。日光に行かれる方にはお勧めです。

You can feel and touch sense of Japanese Emperor's life. Simultaneously, you can see utmost fruits of modern Japanese architecture in between 19C and 20C, which you can not see in Tokyo. If you visit here when you go to Toshogu at once, you will travel through Japanese history from 17C to 20C.

“Very nice and modest imperial residense”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

It is very interesting to see and feel how modest and beautiful was a summer residence of Emperor. It creates a special mood to see all these empty rooms and wall decorations. The garden is also nice.

“luxurious and beautiful”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

106 luxurious rooms, some covered in velvet carpet, others in tatami. The handpainted doors and the glass chandeliers are rare and beautiful pieces of art. The japanese gardens are gorgeous and relaxing.

“Quiet and Peaceful”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

We stopped at this place with the intention to view the Urami Falls but unfortunately we were told by an office of Forestry that it is about 25Km walk and again in view of time we gave it up and soon found ourselves infront of Tamozawa Imperial Villa.

This villa is the resident of Prince Yoshihito. It is quiet, serene and peaceful but we did not visit villa as it is at closing time. We ventured around the memorial park and found pretty sakura trees blooming with flowers as we do not expect to see them in Nikko. Again we did not spend much time because we are not sure when the next Tobu Bus will arrive and we waited at least 30 mins and wish that there is some information giving the intervals of bus arrival. Therefore we are unable to give more comments on this peaceful memorial park and villa.

There is a bus stop infront of the Villa where we board the Tobu Bus.
