Japan's Healing & Scenic Retreat

From amazing historical sites to hidden gems, we feature special places to visit at the beginning of the year or at a milestone in your life. Some of the places introduced here are “unexplored” and far from the urban areas, but that makes it intriguing to travel to.

The sights and sounds you encounter on your travels will heal your heart, refresh and rejuvenate your senses.
Please stay at Okura Nikko Hotels throughout Japan, as your base for a wonderful travel experience.
