Nikko, Japan, only two hours north of Tokyo along Tobu Railways' Tobu Nikko Line, is a place for indulging in gorgeous natural scenery and rich traditional Japanese culture. However, in autumn specifically, the dramatic orange, crimson, and golden foliage is stunning, and the newly renovated Nikko Kanaya Annex is the perfect place to stay thanks to its history and central location!
The Nikko Kanaya Hotel was beloved by countless dignitaries and celebrities of the day, including Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, and President Eisenhower. The hotel is even registered as one of Japan's Tangible Cultural Properties. Japanese culture and western culture are well blended into the hotel, giving international guests both Japanese flavor and familiarity of home. The fully renovated Annex ROYAL HOUSE has reopened with 2 Suite Rooms, 1 Corner Twin Room, and 19 Deluxe Rooms (Total 22 rooms).

The NIKKO AREA
During the Nara period (710 – 794), the people's strong faith inspired them to clear the mountains in Nikko, where they built temples, shrines and Buddhist statues. Many craftsmen settled here, building other temples and shrines and to continue caring and maintaining them. Two shrines and one temple - Futarasan Shrine, Toshogu Shrine, Rinnoji Temple - and the monumental ruins surrounding them, were registered as UNESCO's World Heritage Sites in 1999 as the "Shrines and Temples in Nikko." Everyone who visits Toshogu is fascinated by its intricate decorative beauty from the highly refined skills of the area craftsmen. Nikko attracted Westerners with its climate, proximity to Tokyo, and natural beauty. Diplomats from the United Kingdom, France and Italy built villas here to escape the summer heat in Tokyo. Some of these buildings and sites are now open to the public.
