Description

The Nikko Tamozawa Imperial Villa was erected in 1899 as a place to rest for Imperial Prince Yoshihito (later becoming Emperor Taisho). It was used by three generations of emperors and imperial heirs until its closing in 1947. The complex of the villa features 106 rooms, incorporating architectural styles that span the Edo, Meiji, and Taisho eras, blending Japanese and Western influences. Tochigi Prefecture carried out restoration work on the villa from 1997 to 2000, restoring it to its appearance in 1921.
Since 2000, the villa and its yard have been open to the public as a memorial park. In 2003, it started being used as a training facility as well, with tea ceremonies and dinner parties often held there today.
It was also designated as an Important Cultural Property in 2003, and even selected as one of Japan's Top 100 Historical Parks in 2007.
