I love checking out Japanese Ryokans and Honke Bankyu did not disappoint at all. Location wise, it is a little far out from Nikko, and you got to take a combination of buses and trains to get there and the entire commute can be very long. But I do think it is worth the

The history of Honke Banku drew us to stay. We are travelling around Japan for seven weeks, mainly staying in beautiful locations and traditional properties. There was much we enjoyed about this ryokan - the history, the view, the suspension bridge, two futons stacked together

Friendly staff, comfortable bedding, excellent hot springs, and out-of-this-world traditional Japanese luxury dining (Kaiseki Ryori), with a rustic twist. It’s all here. The main building is hundreds of years old, and the story of the place is fascinating. It’s quite far

To get to "Honke Bankyu", you can use Tohbu NIkkou Line from Tohbu Asakusa station to Tohbu Kinugawa station via Tohbu Imaichi station or from JR Shinjuku station direct to Tohbu Kinugawa station. It will take about two hours on board. And from Tohbu kinugasa station to the inn ,fiffty minutes by Tohbu bus line. Room charge usually include a evening meal and breakfast. Bon voyage

You can visit Edo Wonderful down at Kinugawa if you like to see some ninja actions or even dress like one (Also dresses for ladies) ! There's some waterfalls and scenic drive along the route to the Ryokan as well which is very pretty. For me, I would relax as much time as possible within the hotel which is such a lovely place!

"Stay in the old part of the building."
"Overlooking river - and the rope/vine bridge leading to the dining hall. Lovely food, great views, amazing historical items/info. Loved it."
"Even the standard rooms here have character and views. Those with beds and hot tub are more expensive - but worth every penny."
"Rooms on the river with private onsen are worth the expense."
"Ask for a view over the river/stream"
US$ 316 - US$ 522 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
