Went Nikko during winter, when I arrived at the bus station of Yumoto, I was surprise to see Yumoto Itaya van for picking us up as the ryokan is only 3 to 5 minutes walk from the bus station. During check-in, the front desk staff, who can speck simple English explain patiently the ryokan’s amenities and confirm when I want to have my dinner and breakfast.
Then, a staff led me to my room and explain (in Japanese) to me the amenities in the room (I think). The room is very spacious and clean but the style is a bit old. The amenities besides the normal one include tea pot, tea leaf and a set of Yukata (something like a kimono, but between a kimono and bath robe). So you can wear it to onsen or even to have dinner or breakfast.
Dinner serve is full course of Japanese meal, very delicious! Same goes to breakfast.
Yumoto Itaya has onsen on the 3rd floor, with indoor and outdoor onsen. Although the onsen is not big, but it is open 24 hours. If you don’t feel comfortable of being naked in front of others, then choose odd hour to go.
This is the only ryokan I stayed in Nikko, but based on my conversation with an old Japanese couple, they said they have tried many ryokan in Nikko, but Yumota Itaya is one of the cheap, good services and have high quality spring water ryokan in Nikko.
