Wonderful little guesthouse just a few minutes' walk from the Nikko train station. Clean and quaint, right in the center of Nikko, with easy access to the bus station (starting point for tours). I came with two friends for a quick weekend getaway from Tokyo, and the guesthouse was perfect. The owners are an adorable couple with excellent advice about... More

I stayed in this guesthouse with a friend for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. It is more of a renovated old home so the rooms/bathrooms/stairways are quite small but it has a great warm and welcoming atmosphere. The owners were so helpful and kind and at night we would come back and sit around the table in the... More

The hosts at Nikko Guesthouse Sumica are very nice, and eager to exchange experiences and opinions about their country life and way of being. My boyfriend and I where there for one night during the festival... it's a very comfortable place at a good price. Thanks for your hospitality.

The host, Kumiko san, was very kind to help me with local tourist attractions and restaurant suggestions that were not yet on trip advisor. We also had a great time talking about each others' travel stories and food. Later that evening we all played mini games with other hostelers and got our fortunes read! Definitely would come back

I stayed here for one night... it was fun. Location is just across train station/ bus stops with plenty of eating joints around. Very convenient. Dorm type accommodation meant staying together with people from different countries (France, UK, Chili, Thailand, Japan in my case), hanging out with them in the common hall (drinks, chats), taking a night time stroll to...

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
