Nikko Kanaya Hotel

1300 Kami Hatsuishi-machi, Nikko, Tochigi-ken, 321-1401, Japan

This family-run operation is a little worn around the edges after a century of operation, but it still has the best location in town—across the street from Tosho-gu—and the main building is a delightful, rambling Victorian structure that has hosted royalty and other important personages from around the world. Rooms vary a great deal, as do their prices: the more expensive rooms are spacious and comfortable, with wonderful high ceilings; in the annex the sound of the Daiya-gawa murmuring below the Sacred Bridge lulls you to sleep.

PROS

  • spacious
  • staff is better at giving area information than the tourist office

CONS

  • rooms rather pricey
  • very touristy: daytime visitors browse through the old building and its gift shops
