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

This hotel is located about one hour bus ride from Nikko train station if you take the bus towards Yumoto onsen direction. There is a dedicated bus stop for the hotel and you will have to walk about 8 minutes from the bus stop. Hotel shuttle will pick up at Chuzenji onsen station which is about 45 minutes along the...

How the staff in this hotel can all be so genuinely friendly is a mystery to me. The rooms are spacious, hot baths very comfortable and the food incredible. The hotel has a calm, unrushed and friendly character. My only gripe is that I didn't see any of the famous Nikko monkeys!

We really enjoyed our stay and would come again if we had the chance. Yes, it was quite expensive, but for the memories it was worth it. As others have mentioned, there is a free shuttle bus to the hotel, and also to 3 waterfalls in the local area. My memories will be of the beautiful tatami-matted room, sitting in... More
