Great service. Staffs will go out of their way to assist the guests. Location of the hotel is a bit far from lake Chuzenji and you can't see the lake from the hotel. Hotel offers complimentary tour to Mount Hangetsuyama observation deck and Kegon waterfall. From Kegon waterfall, it's only a short walking distance to Lake Chuzenji where you can... More

The worst hotel I have ever visit in Japan. In my concept, most of Japanese are warm and polite. However, this hotel totally changed my opinion toward high class hotel. I learnt that you won't get what you paid!!!! I didn't feel joyful every moment at all since I got in. Not sure it's bcoz they don't welcome the foreigner... More

I stayed here for one night in September and had a wonderful stay. Some bits of information may be helpful to others: This is a traditional Japanese style onsen hotel. From my observation, guests were mainly Japanese. However the staff speak good English. Hotel is located about 45 minutes by bus from Nikko train stations (JR & Tobu). A complimentary... More

I stayed here with my wife and 16 year old son at the end of July 2016. The location is beautiful and tranquil; the hotel is set back from the lake so in summer the lake is only partially visible because of the trees regardless of which room you are in (all rooms face the lake). If you are a... More

Its was a long 50 minutes but interesting ride from the station on the hotel's free pick up. At first I was worried about the hotel's location. It seems at first isolated and remote. But very soon it turned out that the surrounding is surreal,like a setting for a fantasy movie.Most relaxing just looking out into the woods.The staff is... More

Excellent service from front desk who helped out on our wifi connection, as it didn't work on the 1st night on arrival. The chef also made his best efforts in preparing western breakfast for us on the 3rd morning as we prefer not to have rice for breakfast. Hot spring is good. Food varieties for dinner is only ok, as... More
