If you want a feel of staying in a Japanese home, this is it. Shizuo san made every effort to make you feel welcome and comfortable and yet gave you enough space. He picked us from the station and sent us off too, at 6am! The room I stayed in was very spacious and clean. I would stay here again... More

A lovely family run b&b, large rooms by Japanese standards (the triple was the largest we had in our stay in japan). Japanese bathroom is shared but there is a sign to hang outside to say occupied. The owner met us at the train station and took our luggage and then sent us in the direction of the shrines. He... More

We stayed with Keiko and Shizuo while in Nikko. Wonderful couple. Shizuo drove us to restaurants and told us when the onsen was free for our use. Brilliant breakfast, quiet neighbourhood. Excellent minshuku experience.

I loved to stay at Rindou-no-ie. They have just few rooms in a simple japanese style house. It is situated in a residential neibourhood, about 20 minutes walking from the JR Station. I thought it was completely lovely that they offer to pick you up at the station and dropp you back there. My husband and I had a very... More

Shizuo and Keiko treated us like family. If you are looking for a luxurious anonymous experience then you'll probably want to stay elsewhere. The accommodations at this Minshuku are very comfortable, we had a Japanese style room with futons on tatami that were firm, clean and comfy to cozy up in at night. Shizuo met us at the station, took... More

This Ryokan was a great place to stay. The reason why, because the owners are very helpful and friendly. the room was a good example of a Japanese style room. The owner picked us up and dropped us off at the train station.

I have absolutely nothing but great things to say about our stay here. Hospitality: First, we set up our reservation about 3 weeks in advance and got an email almost immediately, thanking us for choosing them. Instead of directions to the inn, the owner gave us his phone number and asked that we call when our train arrived. We called... More

We spent 2 nights in this cosy Minshuku. The interior of the house was so cute, full with wonderful small decorations and the atmosphere was so inviting that we felt at home. But most of all it was the friendliness of the owners that made us feel so good. We arrived on a rainy afternoon and were already spoilt with... More

If you're staying in nikko, I would recommend staying in this ryokan! While it is a short walk from the town itself, it's a nice walk, and the owners will pick you up from the train station and drop you off! The breakfast was delicious, unfortunately we didn't get to try the dinner but I imagine the quality would be... More

Upon checking-in, Sizuo provided a detailed map highlighting the attractions, restaurants, supermarkets etc around the vicinity. He also sent and fetch me from the onsen even though I wanted to walk there myself. He insisted as it was too dark to navigate around. True enough, walking in the dark would be quite daunting as the street was not well-lit. Breakfast... More
