Natural Splendor and Aesthetic Sensitivity at Art Biotop

Replenish your soul and tap into your creative side at this artist's retreat in the Nasu foothills

To the north of Tokyo you'll find Tochigi Prefecture and the Nasu area, set in the mountains where the air is clear and time flows gently.

Nestled in these mountains is Art Biotop, a retreat where you'll find unparalleled natural beauty and a chance to explore your artistic interests. Their accommodation focuses on long-term stays so that you can truly experience the best the area has to offer, while taking advantage of the many artistic workshops offered, from glass blowing to pottery and more.

Rooms have a simple, modern design with an emphasis on white to help you find serenity and focus. They’re furnished with a full bath and a kitchenette, ideal for guests who enjoy cooking for themselves. Or treat yourself to slow food fashioned with locally sourced ingredients at their Gallery Café. They will do their best to accommodate dietary restrictions and food allergies, but please make certain to inform them at the time of reservation so they’re able to ensure ingredients are kept separate.

Roam their stunning water garden as you meditate. You should note that families with young children may have limited entry to preserve the tranquility of the garden. Whether you're an aspiring artist or just a lover of nature and slow life, visitors to Art Biotop are sure to find inner peace and inspiration.
