Standards Japanese hotel style ryokan, great location We wanted something close to all the temples and also a Ryokan with Onsen. We couldn't find any small ryokan so we settled for this hotel style Ryokan. The hotel location is great. A short walk from all the Unesco temples and shrines. A 50 meter walk from the bus stop. Although it... More

We seemed to be the only non-japanese in this medium sized ryokan/hotel, and we were received warmly. Our room was very spacious, and clean, on the fifth non-smoking floor, with private bath room (mini onsen style). Dinner and breakfast were served in a private dinner "room" at the ground floor, and were of excellent quality (dinner 12 - 13 courses).... More

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).

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.
