Excellent quality/price compromise. 10min walking to train station. Typical and rustic public house in Japanese style and very comfortable. We went there in family with our 2 kids (4 and 1,5 years old), and everyone enjoyed to sleep all together on "futons"! The owner proposed continental breakfast for 800y and other soup, pizza, beer, snack for the diner if just... More

Nice little place to base yourself for a trip to Nikko. Walkable from the station but not for the unfit but not a long taxi ride and Yuji will drop you at the station if you leave at the right time. He also ran us to and from the local onsen on both nights we stayed. Room was comfortable, if... More

I enjoyed my stay in this lodge. Rooms were clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Yuji san the owner provided free tea,water, and condiments and use of utensils in the common area. Although its a bit far from the town center, yuji san can fetch you from the train station. Bike rental is also available.

I almost rated the Narusawa as very good, but first read a few of the negative reviews and can understand where they came from, though nothing of that order happened in my presence. The owner can both be very helpful and at other times a bit wrapped up in his own thoughts and/or desire for privacy. I've seen too many... More

Everything was great, until our group of seven people were driven home by the manager from the Onsen 5 minutes away. At first he started driving as one of the girls of the group was standing with one leg outside the car and one inside. She could've hurt herself really badly and the car started yelling which was followed by... More

I was in Nikko for two nights. The owner, Yuji, was very polite and had me set up quickly. The room was Japanese style and very basic. A table, a mattress with bed covers, and an outlet with which to charge my tech. Yuji drove me and other customers to the onsen nearby which was also inexpensive (500 yen for... More

The nice, helpful guy who runs this lodge appears to be a little strapped for cash. This is very basic accomodation out of town and really only accessable by strong legged youth. The view from the best rooms in this crumbling family home is a storage or dump site for industrial equipment. Even the lower price asked is excessive compared... More

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
