Very convenient location for Nikko’s best sites; long uphill walk from train stations, but close to bus routes. Comfortable pension type room with basic ensuite toilet/bath room. Breakfast and dinner optional but served in homey dining room. Two rooms for hot bath. Staff very willing to communicate, partly in English. Two recommended dinner restaurants, and two 7-11 type stores, nearby.

I have been doing a 'summer' clean out of cupboards and found a receipt from Turtle Inn Nikko dated 18 January 1996. I remember the Inn and Nikko with great happiness - caught a (public transport) bus up into the snow-filled mountains (slipped over a few times in the snow and I was the only tourist there - nice hot...

We've stayed at the Turtle Inn twice, and both times the owners have been great - lots of helpful advice, and their English is excellent. The rooms are simple but the heaters work in winter and there's pretty strong wifi in the rooms. I've never had dinner here since they serve it one day a week, but their breakfast is... More

The ryokan was pretty good. Room not big but not cramped. Hotel is in a quiet area near the river, but easily walking distance of shrines and temples. It was a nice day so we walked there from the station (45 min), but the bus is easier (still have to walk 10 min from the bridge). In at least the... More

stayed there while in Nikko. The little inn is on the river, just a short walk form the Nikko shrines. The tiny road where they leads to the Abbyss, A walk by the stream definitely not to be missed (this is where their Annex is located). Room was very small, comfort OK. They have on site private onsen, which was... More

We loved the little town and very also happy with our choice regarding this hostel. Tatami rooms are quite big considering that during our trip some were just half the size but cost double. Facilities were clean, yet average standard. River is quite loud. If you are sensitive to noise at night, you might want to look for another place.... More

Great location - close to all the Nikko highlights. Very nice and helpful staff, suggesting a place to eat local and traditional food (which was totally worth it). Room (western style) was clean and spacious, the hotel has a free Wi-Fi and traditional japanese baths (also very nice). The only comment I have is that the bathroom was a little... More

Basic place to stay but that is all you need. Wifi in room and the sound of running water from the beautiful river out the back is exactly what I needed after a week in Tokyo! Nice trail alongside the river = great morning walk. The woman at reception was one of the Sweetest people I have met.
