The hotel's rooms are large and spacious, and can easily handle five or six people. We stayed in two traditional rooms with futons and they were quite comfortable, with both a main room and separate sitting area with window from which you could see the river. The bath facilities were excellent, and among the best we have seen in Japan.... More

Very nice hotel with Japanese style rooms. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a big western style table and nice view of the river area. Staff very polite and willing to help, though not always able to communicate in English. Very nice onsen. Breakfast is served in a private room which felt a bit stuffy.

Interesting to use the Onses. There is no privacy and you have to be in there naked. There are separate facilities for men and women. There is also a Turkish steam room. Lots of creams and shampoos. Hair dryer. No extra towels and no attendants. All that washing and hot water sure helped me sleep! Location-Excellent – close to shrines... More

The hotel location is perfect if you are visiting Nikko for the first time. The temple is only few minutes walk, there are little charming cafe and shops around the hotel. The room is nice, so is the hot spring. The only challenge is language, however the staff is eager to help with or without speaking English.

Absolutely magnificent experience of life in Japanese culture. Hotel locates hundred meters from World Historical Heritage Nikko shrines, and river and mountain view from window. Except that there are several nice walking trails begin from there. Nikko village from one side and lake Chuzenji from other direction are reachable by bus (especially if you have Nikko pass). The staff of... More

This modern ryokan is a bit perplexing. It is large, with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, and is right across the road from the Toshugu shrine complex. The welcome is overwhelming - obligatory tea and local sweet cakes (my apologies - but the local speciality bean sweet seems to be covered in grey chewy slime - mine went into... More

A lovely hotel in a great location, right across the road from Toshogu shrine. We chose option to eat dinner and breakfast in our room (Heya shokuji) and it was great. However please note not a drop of English is spoken in the hotel.

We went to this hotel early november 2014..the hotel located near Toshogu shrine,UNESCO world heritage. A bus stop just in front of the hotel and 10 minutes walk to world heritage site, where beautiful park with momiji leaves turning to flame color...amazing! The staff were helpful and the food was delicious. Unfortunately no wifi in room.

We stayed in this Japanese style hotel on our way to Karuizawa from Tokyo. Its an excellent ryokan with ensuite facilities and all modern conveniences. Our bedroom was very spacious, simple and elegant - a traditional Japanese tatami room and very clean. The hotel has its own hot spring baths and a good selection of yukata for the guests to...

We spent two nights in Nikko Senhime Monogatari on our honeymoon. We had a room with private onsen. And we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is within a walking distance from Nikko's most important temples and sights. The rooms were really nice and the onsen on the balcony was great. I was a little disappointed when reserving the hotel... More
