The sprawling grounds of Niki Club harken back to the days when villages and towns played a central role in ecosystems known as satoyama, where human civilization and nature coexisted in a symbiotic relationship. Elements of this ecosystem still exist here at Yokozawa—and specifically Niki Club—and our Forest Concierge is your guide to them. His morning tours last an hour, giving guests plenty of time to soak in the secrets of the forests, as well as Niki Club, just in time for breakfast.Tours are offered in association with Niki Club and are available in Japanese only.
*Tours available in Japanese only.
