the best place I have stayed in Japan by far.
Although it's a bit far from a station (about 20 minutes walk or so) but it's still in a walking distance and you can enjoy the view of a river.
The room was very nice. fully equipped.
The dinner is the best ! don't miss !
and the owners are very cute and helpful, i really like them.

we stayed here two nights for a visit to the temples in Nikko. It was the best experience during our 10 days in Japan. The owners are so sweet and helpful. The room was nice and big enough.
I regret we only had dinner one evening, it was nicely presented and very tasteful.
The owner picked us up from the train station and dropped us of again. They speak good english, compared to a lot of other people in japan.
I would love to go back there

We stayed at Rindou-No-Ie for two nights during our visit to Nikko. Only thing we regret is that we didn't stay any longer there! The owners, Shizuo-san and Keiko-san, were most friendliest and made us feel more than welcomed. We highly recommend to take the dinner option. It was definetely the best meal we ate during our trip to Japan! Shizuo-san even adjusted the dinner to fit our vegetarian diet. Also the breakfast was excellent. Room was clean and matched our expectation.
There's a traditional Japanese bath in the shared bathroom downstairs which is worth trying. After a full day of hiking it was really relaxing. We were able to leave our baggage there for the last day and Shizuo-san delivered them to train station upon our leave.
For an authentic minshuku experience we highly recommend this excellent place!

This was our first experience with a ryokan, so I was a little nervous not knowing what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best weekend get aways we've had! Shizuo-san and Keiko-san made us feel totally welcome and made our weekend in Nikko as easy as possible. Shizuo-san picked us up at the train station and allowed us to drop off our bags while we went sightseeing. That evening, he drove us into town, and after dropping us off at our restaurant went in with us to ask the staff to call him when we were finished eating so he could pick us up! What incredible service! Since this was our first stay in a traditional Japanese home, we were a little unsure of the etiquette, but our hosts were very patient in explaining everything, and I'm sure overlooked some of our faux pas with grace. To be honest, I was very hesitant about the communal bath and shower. I am the type of person that will pay extra for an en suite. But, the experience was so amazing, it was really easy to appreciate the tradition of it all and not get caught up in my hang ups. Add to this the delicious (and beautifully presented) breakfast and the fantastic value, you just can't beat the stay at Rindou-No-Ie.

Our stay at Rindou-No-Ie was the high point of our trip to Japan. One of the biggest issues for non-Japanese visitors traveling in Japan is the extreme difficulty involved in connecting with local Japanese people, due to language and cultural barriers. One gets to see the sights but is left feeling frustrated at the lack of meaningful human connection with the local people. In that sense it was really great that we got to stay at Rindou-No-Ie and experience Mr. Shizuo's genuine friendliness, warmth and hospitality. Initially we were a little apprehensive about staying at a Minshuku because of reports that some of these establishments do not welcome foreign visitors, however Mr. Shizuo was absolutely delightful and put our minds at ease right from the start. He picked us up at the train station multiple times and dropped off our bags when we left, which was great since we were there during a typhoon and the rain made the walk difficult. He patiently and non-condescendingly explained to us the procedures and etiquette involved in staying at a traditional Japanese minshuku, which was a fascinating cultural journey for us. Staying in the tatami room, sleeping on the floor and using the shared bath and toilet facilities was a refreshing change from your standard anonymous hotel experience. The bath supplies (like everywhere we stayed in Japan) were of much higher quality than anything available in the United States. Best of all was the home-cooked breakfast Mr. Shizuo prepared for us in the morning ... it was a work of edible art, each little dish was indescribably pretty and delicious, and at 700 yen per person it was a complete bargain for Japan. Highly recommended!

Room tip: E-mail Mr. Shizuko to directly reserve your room instead of going through a third-party agency.
