Beautiful refined hotel in a wonderful mountain gorge. Quite town close to Nikko Unesco world heritage site, easy for a day trip to Nikko. From the attentive staff, fabulous architecture, wonderful room and amazing food this place is pure perfection! Our room looked out on a beautiful gorge with a milky blue river and fall colors. Sitting on the balcony was just amazing! We also had our own private room in the lovely restaurant for the exquisite meals. Thank you Hotel Kanaya Kinugawa Onsen!

Room tip: There are rooms with Western Beds

I always visit this "Ryokan" type of hotel with my husband around Christmas every year.
It is just a perfect place to relax.
After we check in, we never leave our room until the check-out.
(Except when I go to SPA, which is also excellent.)

If you are stying in the certain kind of rooms, you can also request to have dinner and breakfast in the room.

There is also a hot spring in the room, this is one of the reasons why we don't need to leave the room.

To be honest, there is not much around the hotel to look around, but if you are there to just relax, enjoy the view and nice food, this is the perfect hotel to choose.

Room tip: I recommend the room with "in-room dining" and hot spring.

From the moment you arrive you know you are somewhere really special. You could arrive with no extra clothing or bathroom products, every thought for an amazing stay is thought of. The onsen was the best I experienced on the trip to Japan, indoor and outdoor bathing areas. The products where luxurious, the whole area so clean and fresh, one overnight stay was reviving. Our tatami mat room/suite was so beautifully laid out, overlooking the river with a private balacony. The air was so fresh and the View mesmerising. Meals so special, kaiseki style, with so much thought to the presentation as well as the freshness and flavour. If I leave home you know where to find me!

We loved this place. It is old, but reeking of character. Our room, 18, in the original building, was large and clean and very new looking. I think some of the other rooms might not have been as nice. Our plan included breakfast and dinner, which were both very good. The hotel is walking distance to the main shrines and the bridge. We got great service, the gal at the front wrote out directions for us as to how to get places. It wasn't cheap. But we loved it.

If you are looking for grant hotel, you will not be disappointed. The onsen is great, the room is clean but not too spacious but the view is fantastic with very the river just in front of the balcony.
If you are looking delicious food, you may not be satisfied. The set dinner I tried is a fusion of western food and Japanese food. The appearance is good but the taste is ok without suprise. The Japanese breakfast is really a bit disappointed.

Overall, the price is not worth for the whole package
