Italian Embassy House Memorial Parkイタリア大使館別荘記念公園

Historical Monument

This is one of the foreign residential villas that lined the shores around Lake Chuzenji from the middle of the Meiji period up until the early Showa period. It was the Italian Embassy’s summer villa which was built in 1928. Successive generations of Italian ambassadors used it until 1997 and the wooden constructed two story building has been restored to its original state based on the original blueprints of the time. The first floor ceiling which was made with cedar bark is reminiscent of the architecture of a Japanese tea ceremony arbour, while the outer wall which is made with Nikko Japanese cedar bark and thin planks has a chequered design but engenders a beautiful modern atmosphere.

          Tochigi Main Areas


          Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi's capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
