Kumico-san is a fantastic host: quick to respond to emails, always helpful with travel advice, keeping her guesthouse immaculately clean. I highly appreciated the hot cup of tea offered to me after a long winter day in Nikko. I had a small Tatami room for myself, equipped Futon mattress (with three blankets, very good in winter), a small foldout table... More

The hostel is located at a highly convenient 3 minutes' walk from the train station. Amazingly I was able to secure a spacious Japanese-style tatami room on the second floor only a handful of weeks from the actual date. It was clean, aesthetically pleasing complete with an alcove and a wall scroll for the authentic Japanese feel, and had more... More

2 min walk from the station, though you'll have to take the bus (200 yen) to see the rest of Nikko or walk about 20-30 min quite up hill. Very noisy rooms. We were in a room at the 1st floor with wc on the floor while the shower was on the ground floor. No breakfast, no common area. If... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend for three nights in July 2013. The guesthouse itself is very close to the train station you will most likely arrive at when you come to Nikko - just 100m or so up the road. It is a very cute house, with good sized rooms and amenities. The best part about staying here is... More

We were only here for a flash visit for the Autumn festival on October. Guesthouse Sumica is located almost right in front of the JR Nikko station, and only a couple minutes walk from the Tobu Nikko station. The temples is located a bit up hill, so it might be best to take a bus (around 200 yen with the... More

The guesthouse Sumica is a nice place to stay in Nikko. It is very affordable accommodation and well maintained. The rooms a pretty small and there is no common area at all so can be a bit awkward. However, the staff are amazing. So friendly and helpful. The location is good - close to the station although a bit of... More

Plus: Great price for a bed in shared room..The hotel is really close to the train station and this is great for backpackers: you can leave your staff in the morning there and go by walking (what I did!). The staff is helpful and really nice (they brought us to the city festival!) Minus: Small common spaces

I spent 8 weeks backpacking all over Japan, and this was easily my favorite place to stay (which says a lot, because customer service is nearly always great in this country!). The staff goes above and beyond in every way, from helping make plans, to leading games that help break the ice for their guests from all over the world.... More
