Just one hour from the buzzing metropolis of Tokyo, the Nippondaira Hotel sits amongst manicured gardens overlooking the peak of mighty mount Fuji, offering a tranquil escape and fantastic facilities, including an excellent spa.

Overlooking the coastline of the Miho Peninsula and the looming peak of Mount Fuji, the Nippondaira Hotel is a large, contemporary country-style hotel in the Shizuoka Prefecture, just an hour by train from the heart of Tokyo. The surrounding countryside is awash with stunning coastal views, lush forests and sacred shrines, dating back over 400 years.

Set amongst immaculately tended lawns, the six storey Nippondaira Hotel sits like a modern sculpture in the semi-rural landscape. The rooms and suites are spread across the hotel, all with picture windows looking out towards the pine groves of Miho no Matsubara, part of the World Heritage Listed Fujisan Cultural Site, and some with views of distant Mount Fuji. Rooms are spacious and bright, with modern facilities and private en-suite bathrooms. 

A wide choice of cuisine is on offer at the Nippondaira Hotel. Enjoy sumptuous buffets at breakfast and lunch time in The Terrace, before it transforms into an elegant French dining room after dark. At Fukian, an array of authentic Japanese cuisine and fresh sushi is available, using seasonal ingredients from the local Shizuoka area. Enjoy a traditional English afternoon tea at the Terrace Lounge, overlooking the manicured lawns to the sea beyond, or settle down in the Upper Lounge on the sixth floor for a cocktail looking at Mount Fuji. Elsewhere in the hotel, Nippondaira’s Pevonia Botanica Spa offers an array of relaxing and pampering treatments, alongside a relaxation room and Vichy shower room.
