You can't go wrong with Rindou
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Jan 2013
Room Reservation : Made my one night reservations through booking.com
Location : Located off a road in a small neighborhood and about 15mins fine walk from Tobu-Nikko station and main convenience stores/restaurants. Read about the free shuttle but did not use it (we did however got a drop-off to the station when we checked out)
Reception : Warmly welcomed by the host and quickly show around the house.I came to know that the hostess caught a flu and he is running a one man show! Free usage of washing machine, coffee/tea and water both available foc.
Rooms : Room is warm, cosy and well equipped. Shared bathroom are clean and smells really nice. The futon comes with heating pads and kept us warm through the stay. Free Wifi wasn't walking fine through the stay but we are fine as we turn to the data plan card we bought. Shared bathroom is very clean and has a bath tub( or onsen) for use too which i think the water is not from a natural spring. Did not try it.
Meals : Thumbs up for the sumptuous dinner and breakfast and are highly recommended and we are served some additional traditional Japanese food which they have for new year
Overall : We did not really engage with the host much as he seems busy and tired pressumably with his wife falling sick. Did however feel his hospitality and earnesty to make our stay comfortable. Recommend for anyone visiting Nikko!

We decided on rindou no ie after reading the reviews here,and it was indeed an awesome experience! Shizuo san was an excellent host who did not mind making multiple trips back and forth to pick us up from the station and to the onsen etc, we almost felt bad troubling him to do so! The rooms were clean with good heating, and made for an authentic Japanese home stay experience. Their breakfast was amazing too! Nikko was the best part of our trip , and we would definitely stay at rindou no ie again (:

I felt the warmth welcome the moment Sizuo picked us up from Nikko JR station. Both Sizuo and Keiko make us really felt at home and take all measures so that we understand the food we eat and we are comfortable for our stay. Sizuo does not mind making endless trip to drop or pick up guests despite our different arrival or departure time even if this is within an hour. They are so nice that we just want to make sure that we do not give this couple more work or trouble. The food is delicious. Make sure you order ahead so that you could enjoy the delicious dinner at leisure and specify what you can eat and can't. I forgot to tell them what I could not eat, but. Sizuo and Keiko immediately dish out something to replace it. Sizuo San and Keiko San thank you for your warm welcome and hospitality!

If I get to visit Nikko again, I hope to stay at your minshuku again.

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!
