We booked this hotel for four nights to see Nikko national Park and the UNESCO temples and shrines. It is 40 minutes by train and bus from the shrines and then another 40-50 minutes from Chuzenji Lake. If the hotel was world class nada bargain that would be one thing, but it is not. It's a nice hotel with excellent... More

Our room contained this book singing the praises of self-described "Dapper" Japanese hotelier John Kanaya and his dedication to modernizing the Japanese hotel experience. Without fail we can say after having spent ten days in Japan, this is the worst hotel in which we have stayed. Our room had two twin beds when we asked for a king-size bed, no... More

This hotel is very overpriced - $600 US per night - for what it is. It is one of the most expensive hotels I have ever stayed in and also one of the worst. I emailed to book a spa treatment for both myself and my husband 5 days before our planned trip and was told the spa was female... More

The Hotel has a beautiful elegant feel about it. The staff were extremely helpful. If there were language difficulties there was always someone at hand to help out and the food was elegantly served. Our room at its private Onsen that made it even more special.

My husband, our five-year old son and I stayed at Ryokan Kanaya for one night in October. The hotel facilities were first class. The lobby was beautiful. We had a western room with two beds. It came with a spacious tatami living room and a futon was laid out for us at night. So each of us had our owned... More

As I was driving into the hotel after heavy rain getting off the ramp from the Nikko express way, I was a bit disappointed by the exterior of the hotel. It looked somewhat old and outdated. Getting closer to the entrance, two people greeted our car with nice smile, and that's when it started raining again. Look at the entrance... More
