Nikko Park Lodge Tobu Station: The location is opposite from the train station

The location is centrally located just on the opposite side of the train station in Nikko. Once you get out from station you will see the hotel already from the distance. We reach Nikko early morning because we took the 7.30 am train from Tokyo. We thought our room would not be ready. So, we were plan to leave our luggage at the reception and go on tour the heritage area

Infront of the hotel is a cafe/restaurant so, we did not have an idea where the entrance are, then we walk through at the back door, and there is a sign for hotel guest 'use the other door infront'. Suddenly, there was a white guy calling and asking if we are looking for the hotel and we said yes. So, he took us to the door where we pass through, that we didn't see

We can check-in already to our room early in the morning at 9.30 am. Unexpectedly, and we were so glad we can. My first impression when we enter in our room is WOW what a nice view. There is a small balcony where we have a pretty nice view of the mountain and to station square of Nikko

During check-in I was very curios to know how a white foriegner guy working in a hotel desk. I ask him how he get a job in this hotel while working in Japan must be fluent in Japanese. He said, he own the hotel and married to a Japanese and he is from the Netherlands, this was very coincidence. Well, he saw immediately in our paspoort that we are Belgian and that we are both speak the same language ;)

He is very accommodating and explain everything how the doorkey works. Is a bit complicated door, there is a code to enter before the door gets open. I think they do this for security of their guest.

The room is very spacious with small living area next to the television, small kitchen area with sink,fridge, microwave and water kettle. The room we had is probably a family room, coz there were one king size bed and one single bed. A small entrance where the bathroom is located. The bathroom is small, form of a cube, but is good enough for all our needs, toiletteries are available

Outside there are plenty of restaurants and shops, a few meters away there is a big supermarket called Lion D'or. Very convenient place to stay, close to everything. We normally booked a hotel a bit further but we cancel it two days before the trip. and change to this hotel. The first hotel we book from Booking is a little bit cheaper and this hotel is 3€ more from Agoda. No regrets of changing the booking. We were very satisfy with the location and service. For the price of this hotel and its locations are well worth, close to everything. Bus and train station are just accross the street

The location of the hotel is just accross the train and bus station, the views from our balcony facing to the square station and onto your left the mountain view

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.
