We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in Japan and had a very relaxing and wonderful experience. We wanted a traditional experience and that is what we got. At first we had no clue of what we should do. Will we wear our Yakuta at dinner or should we wear our regular clothes, how do we eat the food,... More

This hotel's staff were so hospitable and helpful--we arrived early so one of the staff graciously drove us to a great noodle shop for lunch, then picked us up and took us to Kegon Falls. The onsen was amazing--three pools; one indoors with view, the other two outdoors. Sitting in the outdoor onsen with the snow falling on my face... More

We arrived in Nikko by train at the JR station, put our bags into lockers and went to see the UNESCO World Heritage temples. We finished up about 1:45, took the tourist shuttle bus back to the station to collect our bags, and the hotel shuttle bus picked us up at 2:30, as we had reserved via e-mail. On the... More

We loved this ryokan. The place is quite simple but the service is amazing. Having missed the free shuttle, we took the bus from nikko station and called to let them know we were on our way. Once we stepped off the chuzenji onsen stop, the staff was waiting with a car to take us to the hotel. Although I... More

When I first reached the place, I was a little disappointed. I didn't expect it to look like a regular hotel. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The room was beautiful with all the little details. My room was quite big and could easily hold 4-5 persons although there were only 2 of us. The dinner and breakfast were exquisite. Although... More

We had a lovely two days at the hotel Shikisai. We chose a room with private bath. The room was spacious and very clean. The food was beautifully presented and excellent. The service was perfect. There are many lovely walks near where you can unwind and appreciate the beauty of the area.

The staff is very attentive... They confirmed my reservation for a room with a Pte onsen...but later found they had made a mistake. They gave me a room w a jacuzzi instead n a 10000yen discount! The free bus tour helps... Pick up fr the Nikko jr station at the appointed 230pm and drove us to hotel. Next day...930am tour... More

After comparing the various ryokans and hotels in the Greater Nikko area which was overwhelming as we didn't have sense of the lay of the land, we decided based on pictures, reviews and price to go for Shikisai Hotel. My wife & I don't know if other places are better but we certainly were very pleased with our choice. We... More
