Situated in Nikko, KINUGAWA KEISUI offers 4-star accommodation with a garden and a shared lounge. Among the facilities of this property are a restaurant, a 24-hour front desk and a lift, along with free WiFi throughout the property. Free private parking is available and the ryokan also features a shuttle service for guests who want to explore the surrounding area.

There is a coffee shop, and a minimarket is also available. The ryokan is located in a geothermal area, with a number of hot springs nearby for guests to relax in.

The facilities are super awesome, with free laundry, free minibar (even with alcohol!) provided. Female & Male public bath did interchange each other for evening and morning session, so we can enjoy both facilities. They even have massage chairs in the public bath area for free. Sadly if there is chance to purchase milk/ yogurt after onsen, it will be perfect! The breakfast and dinner are nice too. Breakfast is semi-buffet with quite a lot of salad & drink provided. When we mentioned one of us has certain food allergy, the manager checked in details to ensure everything is alright.

    Absolutely surpassed my expectation as I'd thought it was a hostel but it turned out to be a dorm room within a great hotel! Highly recommend to opt for the food included (especially dinner) as it's a sumptuous 6-course meal with limitless alcohol. Great way to try the cuisine of Japan. The common room also had beautiful views of the lake, free snacks and drinks (including alcohol), games and hammocks. The onsen was great! Everything was clean and to a high standard. They also gave slippers, free toiletries and yukatas.

    We loved this place! Large tatami room with futon beds (note that you will have to make your bed which is common in Japan). The common areas are wonderful with many places to seat and relax, or work (desks and tables). The shared kitchen was large and super clean with everything you need to cook. The onsite Onsen was fantastic! One indoor Onsen and one outside, which was amazing! Staff was nice and friendly.
