Perfect position for walking to the main shrines area. Original ryokan style and atmosphere. Rich Japanese style breakfast (no alternative). The structure needs some renovation, only the tatamis and the comfortable public bath are new. Transport from and to the station available, the walk is quite long and boring (straight to the bridge and the climb the stairs as a... More

I only stayed for one night and I found this hotel merely adequate. The location is fantastic for visiting the local shrines and the building and rooms have a lot of character. The main thing lacking is a bit more English language and interest from some of the staff members. Compared to other places I’ve stayed at in Japan, many... More

I stopped in Nikko for two nights to break my journey flying from London to Sydney. Catching the train from Haneda Airport to Nikko on arrival, and from Nikko to Narita for my onward journey was easy (the website www.hyperdia.com clearly explains the routes and where to change trains). Nikko, and nearby Lake Chuzenji, is one of the most beautiful... More

I loved this hotel! We took a train from Tokyo to Nikko and this hotel is really easy to find. You jump on the bus outside the station and it drops you right outside. It is a traditional japanese ryokan so you leave your shoes at the front door and the staff don't speak a lot of English, however they... More

This Ryokan has large and comfortable Japanese rooms. It was a peaceful stayed after the bustle of Tokyo. It is well located to the key sights and about a ten minute bus ride from the Nikko Stations. The staff and helpful and friendly. A very nice touch is that all guests names are written and displayed at the entrance way... More

I stayed at Nikko Tokanso for one night in mid-April 2014 along with my twin brother and my retired parents during a family anniversary trip to Japan. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay in a peaceful, traditional Japanese style hotel close to the famous temples and shrines Nikko. This is the perfect spot for you!... More

Nikko Tokanso was a wonderful experience! It was our second day in Japan, and we felt that we were experiencing something of days gone by! A traditional ryokan, it was shoes off at the door, and a chance to try authentic Japanese life. Our room was big and comfortable. We had a view of the river from our window. It... More

I feel so lucky that I found this place on-line. The place is no deluxe accommodation, but for the price we paid (7000 yen each with 2 meals), this was a great deal. Both meals were excellent in quality and quantity. The lady at reception desk was so friendly and helpful. She alone would make me stay at Tokanso again.... More

We absolutely loved our time at Nikko Tokanso - Nikko itself is such a beautiful place, and this really added to our authentic Japanese experience. The rooms were big and made up by a Japanese maid each night, and sleeping on the Japanese futon quite comfortable. The breakfast was different to what we are used to but very tasty! The... More

We visited Nikko in the middle of winter, which is certainly not peak tourist time. The region was still stunningly beautiful (Australian eyes are used to seeing brown landscapes!), and the temples and waterfalls and lovely paths were still awesome. The Tokanso is very friendly, very generous and the most comfortable futon I have ever slept on! The onset was... More
