The hotel is just 5 minutes walk to Kinugawaonsen Train Station. You can take the bus from the bus stop outside the Train Station to most of the attraction near Kinugawa. The hotel's staff is nice and friendly. The food from the hotel is great. I booked a room with private Onsen, nice and great experience.

8/10 Very Good

Classy but dated and not located in central Nikko
This is an unusual property, located in a resort area that is substantially deserted. The view is not as pastoral as pictured since there are pylons in the way. The distance from picturesque Nikko is substantial even though the property is listed as Nikko. It was a $60 cab ride away since we didn't realize that the nearest train station was not Nikko Station. The restaurant is what saves the experience although it is a VERY VERY expensive stay.
