Other than its super convenient location, Nikko Guesthouse Sumica is really cosy (the hosts renovated and decorated it with their own special touches here and there) and the hosts Sato and Kumiko were really friendly and helpful to give travellers advice. My boyfriend and I stayed in the private room which is a tatami room with futons and the space...

The accommodation is clean and tidy. The owners are very hospitable and friendly. They kindly invited me to go walking with their friends in the mountains which was a real pleasure. I was really struck by how kind they were and all other people in Nikko. Thank you!

Wonderful little guesthouse just a few minutes' walk from the Nikko train station. Clean and quaint, right in the center of Nikko, with easy access to the bus station (starting point for tours). I came with two friends for a quick weekend getaway from Tokyo, and the guesthouse was perfect. The owners are an adorable couple with excellent advice about...
