Excellent host”

Our stay at the Nikko Narusawa Lodge was great. Our host, Yuji, was very helpful to us. He offered a free shuttle between the home and the train station every day, he also offers a trip to a local onsen (public bath) every night. The fee for the bath itself is 800 yen. The place is filled with little notes explaining the facilities, ideal if you arrive early. The communal area is cozy, too. The only drawback would be the cleanliness of the communal areas. The rooms themselves are clean enough, but there were cobwebs in some corners of the corridors.

Exceptional”

What can I say, I adored the place. Situated in a beautiful spot 15 minutes walk away from Nikko station. Yuji (the owner) is an amazing host. He does his absolute best to ensure your stay is comfortable and even goes out of his way to help you plan your activities in Nikko. He offers free pickup and drop off to and from the station. He was always friendly and very hospitable. When you walk into the place, there is a wall of thank you letters to yuji from people all around the world who loved their stay. This alone should tell you about the kind of host he is. I will definitely be back, and with friends next time!

Great Japanese Experience!”

It was a great experience staying at Narusawa Lodge. The host, Yuji-san, was really helpful and explaining everything in fluent english. He also knows a lot about the area, so he helps us a lot! The house is clean and homey, i feel like in my own home. It was lovely, and would be glad to come back again. Thank you, Yuji-san!

Nice guesthouse at Nikko town center.”

Guesthouse host can speak fluent English and make us like staying at home, At night time host he drove us to a local secret hot spring bath house to enjoy Nikko's nice outdoor hot spring (800yen/person, not expensive). Generally it was a pleasant experience staying here.

Quirky and pleasant”

Very interesting little place not too far from the station on foot. Owner greeted us, showed us to our room and we didn't see him again (he seemed very friendly though). The room and facilities were covered in cute hand-written English signs with instructions (even in the toilet!). Futons were comfortable enough (be prepared for Japanese beanbag-style pillows though) but the WiFi was terrible (YouTube wouldn't even connect). Overall I'd recommend this place for a simple place to stay overnight, it wasn't bad at all.

Friendly staff(Yuji-san), cute hotel & cleanliness.

We are a group of 3 & we stayed for 2 night. Hotel quite far away from station but can walk. Yuji-san(staff) carried us by his car to the station everyday. He was very friendly & kind. Weather & surrounding was very nice, I love there & surely stay there when next visiting. My room was cleanliness & cute.

nice cosy homestay & friendly host”

quiet, in a local neighbourhood, very much like living with the locals

easy access to one of the best outdoor onsen. decent space in the rooms with good shower facilities. only a little inconvenient as it is about 1.2km from the train station. so we have to carry our luggage all the way as there were no bus services and owner was busy & could not fetch us from the train station.

Lodge with character”

Friendly owner, speaks good English

The owner very kindly picked us up from the station very welcome since we arrived after dark--and also stopped by at the combini so we could purchase breakfast for the following day. He also suggested places to visit. The lodge is well-maintained and the rooms spacious. However, there were queues for the shower/bath rooms each morning. The lodge is 10-15mins walk from the train/bus station.

Feels like staying at a friend's home ”

The owner (Yuji) will provide pick-up service from the train station which is 5-min drive from the guesthouse. The guesthouse is 20-min walk from the closest convenient store and the train station which is not a good idea to walk there when the weather is under 0 degree Celsius. But that has compensated with the kind hospitality of the owner who is always willing to help out with everything, there's even a sign in his house that says we can ask him for any help by knocking his bedroom door anytime (24h). It feels like staying at friend's house rather than a budget hostel/guesthouse.

Yuji-san, the person who runs the lodge is a very nice older man. His english was decent. I enjoyed my stay at Narusawa Lodge for two days. Yuji-san shuttles people for free to and from the local train station. He also recommends places to visit. I was happy with the service provided for the cost.

Mr Yuji was awesome”

Mr Yuji, price, cleanliness

Mr Yuji was an extremely kind host who sat us down once we arrived to go through the sights in town, even without us asking. Hr provided us a map and was extremely detailed on what we can see and the amenities in the area (onsen, laundromat, food, etc). Everything in the pantry was also free for taking which I found extremely generous. The toilet and shower were clean although they were shared, and the room was of a very decent size. Location was not a problem as we drove. Enjoyed Nikko and wished we could have stayed there for more days.

Ryokan is located not far from Tobu-Nikko station but a bit difficult to find but if you use google map, there is no problem. The ryokan is clean and comfort and provide basic kitchen tolls to use including tea and coffee. We get a good advice from staff for a few dinner place and good onsen place witch is very attractive.
