This is a little way out of town but is peaceful (lovely sound of the river) and unique. The place is traditionally Japanese and great fun. The owner, Yuji, is so welcoming and helpful. He takes guests to a little onsen (hot springs) in the forest each evening. What a great experience! Best to bring food for breakfast but there... More

There's beverages such as coffee, tea and water which is always available. Our rooms are always made and clean daily. Its basic but we have everything we wanted. On the washrooms and toilets cleanliness, it can... More

Having spent a few nights in hostel dorms I decided to treat myself to my own room for a night in Nikko. The room was excellent value for a single traveller at 4200 yen, not much more than a dorm bed. The guesthouse is simple, clean and comfortable and the owner Yugi was very helpful and friendly. It was very... More

We are a french couple in our sixties travelling for 1 month in Japan. The owner of this accommodation in Nikko is very kind and relax (we would say in french : "baba cool"). The location of the lodge, at 20 mn walking of the station is very quiet and we can reach easily the temples by walking. However this... More

It was just starting to rain when we arrived at the lodge so we were very glad for a warm welcome from the owner (Yugi). He helped us with our luggage and then poured us some green tea. During the tea he was more than happy to ask our questions (there were lots). The lodge is basic but very cosy... More

We escaped hot and humid Tokyo madness for the peace and quiet of Nikko. Narusawa Lodge is a 600 yen taxi ride or a 30 minute walk uphill walk from JR Nikko station. The futon rooms are very spacious clean and comfortable. The owner is delightful gentleman, Yugi- san, who speaks excellent English, learned initially from US Armed Forces radio.... More

We had a nice experience at Narusawa Lodge. The owner was very nice and would speak English which was a good asset. He gave us good tips to move around. The accommodation was located in a quiet neighbourhood 20 minutes walking (min) from the train station. The room was clean and the futons were very comfy. The only 'negative' side... More

This wasn't the first time I stayed in a Minshuku, so I wasn't new to this kind of accomodation. I was there around the peak season for fall color, I booked after hearing another 2 minshuku, which are more expensive, better rated, were full. The host was friendly, replied emails quickly. Location is a little far away from the train... More

The Narusawa Lodge can be a little hard to find on your own (in the dark anyway!) as it is across the river in a quiet residential area, about 15 minutes' walk from the station and 20 minutes' walk from the World Heritage area. However this means that it is quiet and reflected in a reasonable room rate, that includes... More

from the very first time I booked this lodge via hostelworld.com, I already sensed the warmness of the owner. Yuji-san immediately sent us an email, privately, to say that he was looking forward to our stay. while we arrived at Tobu Nikko station, he offered to pick up our luggage and put it in the lodge, so we could go...
