We loved this ryokan. It's older and could use some cosmetic upgrades, perhaps, but our room was huge, the service was very good, and the food was amazing. We stayed two nights and would happily have stayed another. Most of the guests when we were there were Japanese, through there were a few foreign guests, too. While we were downstairs... More

It is really old and the rooms were run down. However the staff was friendly, and the shuttle to and from nikko station was really helpful. Just call them in advance and they can pick you up whenever. The onsen baths looked like they were newly remodeled and were small but nice. Right next to all the sites so very... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Nikko two days to escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and see the iconic Kegon Falls (only one night at this hotel because they were booked in advance). This place is a great introduction to traditional Japanese ryokan hotels. Upon arrival, the hostess presented us with a map of the local sights and... More

The hotel is terribly outdated. There are so many water stains on the floor, walls and even tables. Cigarette smell in the room as well. Disgusting molds are found refrigerator and closet. I know its a Japanese style hotel but they should inform foreigners that there is no bathroom inside room and guests have to use the shared bathroom(which is... More

Only 5 minutes walk to world heritage. You can ask for map from hotel staff and follow the route. All temples are nearby, so you don't need to take bus from one temple to another. Japanese hot spring ryokan. Room is warm during our visit but not the toilet. Breakfast is very basic. You can choose continental or Japanese. Didn't... More

This Ryokan is great! The onsen was heavenly, the staff was very helpful, and the food was delicious. I stayed here over a weekend on a business trip and it was just the peaceful retreat I was looking for. Also, very close to the togoshu shrine.

Two hours out of Tokyo (easy travel by train). I called ahead to let them know what time I would be arriving at the train station. Their man was there to pick me up in a mini bus and was very polite. The Ryokan itself is well placed in Nikko - an easy walk to the shrines, Shinkyo bridge and... More

I stayed in Nikko Tokanso for two nights in March 2016. This is a traditional style Ryokan Guest House located very close by to the World Heritage Site in Nikko. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. My room was clean and comfortable and was the typical ryokan style room that you would expect to find in Japan. The... More
