British Embassy Villa Memorial Park英国大使館別荘記念公園


Museum / Science Museum

A history museum standing on the shore of Lake Chuzenji. The building was constructed in 1896 as a personal villa for Ernest Mason Satow, a British diplomat who significantly influenced the Meiji restoration, and was later used as a villa for the British Embassy. The museum contains displays presenting the life of Satow, while the café on the second floor serves tea and scones prepared under the direction of the chef of the British Embassy in Japan. Here visitors can enjoy an elegant moment of relaxation while gazing at the scenery of the Okunikko area which famed 19th century English traveler Isabella Bird loved so much.

          Tochigi 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.
