Tokanso Ryokan: Amazing Space!

Tokanso was one of the least expensive ryokan that we stayed in during our trip, but was one of our favourites. Our room had loads of space for the kids to run around in (there were actually 3 different areas plus balcony and toilet), it was clean (if a little tired and run down), and the staff were friendly and kind. They also had a definite sense of humour; my son put on an impromptu 'magic' show in the lobby which stopped all work and had them laughing fit to bust! There is a great view of the gardens from the baths, which are also spacious and a perfect temperature for thawing bones frozen from a days rambling around the shrines. The meals were plentiful and excellent and included in the price of the room!

Hotori-an: Nikko's Eastern / Western style hotel

The hotel is right next to the river Daiya and is surrounded by trees. It is very quiet and peaceful there. To get a Japanese experience, we chose the Japanese style room which came with with tatami mats / mattress and had its own bathroom. Best thing about the hotel was the hot spring bath which overlooked the gushing Daiya river, and the sound of the river lulling me to sleep at night. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast, which included fruits, were great. Don't miss the interesting historical hiking route right beside the hotel where you can see the mysterious statues of Jizo.

Private hot spring at your disposal, in the mountains, great walk.

Daiyagawa Youth Hostel: Great hospitality of the hostess

I really enjoyed my 3-night stay here. There are 4 rooms of bunk beds, linens and blankets are included. It has a traditional bath tub and a shower, gender-separated. This place is homey compare to the hostels in Tokyo. You can also have a full dinner here for 840 yen, prepare by the hostess, with appetizer, salad, soup, rice, main dish and fruits. This is a really good deal! Highly recommended!

The room that I was in has 2 bunk beds and it had a window view of the river. You could hear the running river at night, and enjoy the sunrise if you get up early!

The hostel has a traditional bath and a shower. You can soak your tiredness away in the hot bath after a day's walk!

Nikko Green Hotel Natsukashiya Fuwari: Nikko must be done with a ryokan

A traditional Japanese welcome with tea.
Fantastic dinner served in traditional setting.
Breakfast in the cafe with a glass wall looking out over a stream.
Segregated hot springs (private springs available on request) and very comfortable, traditional rooms.
The service is impeccable, but only Japanese is spoken.
I would reccomend this very highly.

The entire experience was a highlight of visiting Nikko.

Pension Green Age Inn: Location Location Location

Right near the entrance to the Toshogu Shrine, 3 minutes walk to the bus-stop for exploring the national park, this place couldn't be better located (although it would be an uphill walk from the station, better to get a taxi). The food is excellent western fare, the rooms have their own bathrooms but a larger Japanese-style bathroom is available (too small to be communal, you can lock yourself in and soak away the days hard walking). The downside is that the bedrooms are in desperate need of refurbishment and updating, and the floorboards feel like they have spent too many damp summers soaking up the humidity. It looks mock-Tudor, which is a strange architectural style for a town with a long religious history and also so important to the Tokugawas. The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful

Daiyagawa Youth Hostel: Accomodation in style - Japanese style!

This small and cosy hostel is located at the riverside, and can be reached via a couple of narrow paths. The hostel is run by a friendly Japanese lady who literally makes you feel at home: she really is the mother of all hostel guests...

Rooms consist of bunk beds. Taking a shower (Japanese style!) is only possible between certain hours in the evening; the hostel owner will pick you up and bring you the bathroom. Every guest receives a pair of Japanese slippers at the hostel entrance. There are special 'toilet slippers' as well... Continental breakfast is available upon request.
