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).

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

We were especially impressed with the service at this hotel. We needed to leave the hotel early to catch a train and asked for a taxi. They said that taxis would not be available but arranged a driver for us and also gave us 4, 000 yen to spend in the hotel gift shop. We got by fine without Japanese.... More
