This is the ultimate in luxury Japanese elopements. The first time we ever came here, we can only describe it as “goosebumps”. It’s part of the Relais & Chateaux luxury accommodations of the world for very good reason. Surrounded by greenery in the pretty inland hot spring onsen town Shuzenji, it’s located in the heart of the picturesque and mountainous Izu Peninsula.
Serene lakeside onsen bathing, lush gardens, seasonal cuisine and zen guestrooms: This spectacular property is one of Japan’s finest traditional ryokan inns. The 15th-century family-run inn is defined by its timelessly minimal décor, impeccable service and intimate atmosphere. And an elopement or intimate wedding here is beyond your wildest dreams.
An elopement sees one half of the couple ride by boat on the historic pond to their waiting partner, music echoing throughout. A ceremony on the historical noh stage by head priest. Spiritual and emotional. We can arrange a celebrant for a more western ceremony if that’s more ‘you’. A luxury one-night stay is included in an incredible space with in-room private onsen.
Award-winning cuisine for your elopement dinner. If time permits, we take in a little of the bamboo forest and bridges of the quaint town for more stunning photos and to experience the local authenticity of this magical place.
This is the ultimate in Japanese luxury elopements. And luxury destination weddings in Japan. Truly a wedding day you’ll never forget.
