This was our second time in Nikko, and our second stay at Guesthouse Sumica. It was as good if not better as when we were there in 2013. The owners are a delight. The guests cooked dinner together one night and played cards the other night - it's a really happy place!

Arrived for check in and created by very friendly hosts, they asked if I'd like to some sports that evening to which I agreed. A few hours later myself and the other guests were all in the nearby gym with a load of locals playing badminton and basketball - absolutely brilliant fun! After the sports we all chilled out in...

Spent just one night here and didn't have tons of time in Nikko, and I never would have been able to make the most for it if not for the wonderful hosts. They gave me a terrific overview of the trails, the bus situation, and helped me choose the best hiking route for my one day in town. They also... More

Great location, literally 2 mins walk from JR Nikko station. Guest house is small but very warm welcome from Yoko when we arrived, she gave us maps and a great tip for a meal (Shiori). We went for a private tatami room which was clean and comfortable. Shared shower but two toilets was sufficient so no queues. Tip - visit... More

We spent a few nights at Sumica Guesthouse and were very pleased. The owners are really nice and do their best to help and entertain the guests. We had a private double room which was just great. The common areas are very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is very useful to prepare meals, snacks for the day, or just... More

An excellent and traditional Japanese hostel, the size of a small house. We also had a free upgrade to a private room! No problems at all staying here. Would thoroughly recommend, with friendly staff, a nice atmosphere and location next to the railway station.

We spent 3 weeks all over Japan in hostels and guesthouses and this place was by far superior to the rest. The reason is the intimate setting created by the owners/staff who treat everyone like a friend. This created an environment where the travellers and staff all interacted with each other. Even though we only stayed 2 nights it felt... More

Fantastic location next to the main train station. Kind, helpful and really flexible couple. The house is in the traditional Japanese style(less is more). Nice simple interior, tatami, futon beds and with some particular quaint details. Great living room to socialise. Spotless clean. I absolutely loved it. You can discover Nikko from here from A to Z. Big thank you... More

We stayed in the 6 tatami mat room (a good size for a couple with two standard size suitcases) in this beautiful guest house. Only a minute or two up the hill from the station so an easy walk with cases, but also only about 15 mins up to the shrines etc (and close to a supermarket) so an ideal... More
