I have stayed at many Ryokan around Japan. This place was the first. 1. The rooms and hallways stunk like smoke 2. They charged 5,000 yen more for an "upgraded" meal that contains sashimi (though my GF is a vegetarian, I figured I'd bite the bullet on the cost so I could have the sashimi. The meal included exactly *2*... More

I travelled to this ryokan in early October. The view from this elevated location was beautiful. The noise from the street below was non-existent. There is a steakhouse touching the parking area. Parking is convenient and free. Extremely close to the Nikko National Park (UNESCO). Many shops in the vicinity, especially one quaint little ramen shop. Great offerings, no robbery.... More
