From Nikko train station, they provided free shuttle to the hotel, and it takes around 50 minutes. This place is peaceful, and we got a view bath room with breakfast and dinner included. The best part is the relaxing indoor and outdoor hot springs. Dinner portion was a bit too much for me, and you need to dine at a designated time.

This hotel includes an onsen bath facility which is spacious but not particularly pretty. The hotel is old fashioned Japanese style with no western style beds. The food both dinner and breakfast is quite elaborate with many Japanese delicacies . The staff’s English is tentative but they are eager to please.

We wanted to visit Nikko, but not to stay in the touristic part. Most of the hotels were out of our budget and then I came across Shikisai. We booked for two nights, half board. First nice surprise - the hotel proposes a free shuttle to and from Nikko. A comfortable minivan picked us up and drove us 45 minutes through the mountains. The hotel is right next to the late in the national park. Upon arrival we experienced the japanese hospitality - we felt extremely welcome. The room was very comfortable, with two futons ( a third for our child was laid out during dinner), a small table and chairs - japanese style, but with a bathroom. From the room we had direct access to the forect and a small terrace. The place is known for bird watching - you have binoculars in the room and in the lobby there is a huge window with a long desk in front of it, five chairs, binoculars and bird watching books. As we were there two nights they proposed us to change the menu for the second night so we do not eat the same thing twice. DInners were exceptional - a real feast, japanese style, with fish, meat, starters, traditional plates like wabu if I remember the name well. More food that we could eat. And there is the onsen - what an experience to seat in the hot bath looking at trees! There is hiking to do and the hotel proposes a free tour of the waterfalls. We had a lovely time and my five year old wants to go back!

The hotel located inside the forest so made me feel very relax and calm. Staffs were great. They cannot speak English but helpful and well-trained. Good taste of foods. Room is spacious and comfortable. Public onsen is fantastic. Good choice!

The Shikisai hotel has luxury of beatiful nature around. They don't benefit from that though. The rooms tatami was dirty, the window outlooking the nature was covered with stains and hotel staff said 'it's not possible to clean the window'. The food is not good. Dinner service is slow. Serving instant orange juice to accompany Japanese breakfast is a bad idea.

Set in the woods just above the lake . Out of town . The external appearance is unimpressive . The rooms are large. The onsen is good and the food is excellent .only a short walk to the lake .it would be best if you had your own car to enjoy the surrounding area .

I have study many hotels in Nikko and finally stop at this hotel. Wondering that hotel will be ok or not while booking!!. The way to hotel must drive along the slopes which is about 48 slopes but it is very easy drive and road are split to one way up and one way down. Then when we arrived the hotel, must say it is very first impression. Friendly and helpful staffs since in front of hotel, reception, bell, waitress, Housekeeping.. all of them are over expectation. Japanese room style is very spacious with seperate toilet, bathtub. Amenities are ok but shampoo or body wash should be in the big bottle than in a small sachet. Bed are twin and it is comfortable. There is a terrace with snow and lake view. There have free flow of tea and small dessert in the room and you can enjoy all day coffee tea at lobby area. The highlight is outdoor onsen, I am so appreciated onsen in the -6 celcius and enjoy the forest view.. should not miss this part. The other special impression is the Kaiseki food, it is amazing with about 9 courses. Services from waitress in all meals are beyond expectation. Overall food taste are delicious, even it has many courses but I feel it is not too full or suffer from plenty of food. Because most of food are light, healthy and not too much portion. If have a chance to Nikko, will come stay here again.

The hotel is located on a hill and hidden in the woods. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to Lake Chūzenji. Its comfortable environment makes you relax. The hotel is more of western style than of Japanese, though the room is furnished with tatami. One might not expect to receive the traditional Japanese warmth and attention from this hotel. Maybe the staffs were too busy; they did not even unload our luggage from the bus. Compared to the other onsen ryokans, their meal was about average, which was tasty but not delicate. The kaiseki dinner did not amaze me a lot. The most enjoyable experience of my stay was their high-quality onsen, which was silky and milky. Having the chance to bathe in the snow was also a welcome delight Considering their reasonable price, Shikisai is definitely not a bad choice for staying at Oku-Nikko. 旅館位於小山丘上隱入樹林,離中禪寺湖岸約十分鐘腳程。舒適的環境讓人放鬆。 雖然房間是榻榻米的,但這是一家較偏西式的旅館。不要期待可以接受到傳統日式旅館的貼心服務。也許服務生太忙,他們甚至沒有幫我們的行李從巴士上卸下。 相較其他溫泉旅館,他們的餐點一般,可口但不精緻。懷石晚餐並沒太令人驚艷。 此行最享受的是他們高品質的溫泉,水質非常滑潤。在下雪中的戶外湯呂泡溫泉是非常愉悅的經驗。 由於價格合理,四季彩還是在奧日光過夜不錯的選擇。¬

早餐晚餐都很好吃!酒店免費的半天遊是自由行最佳的優惠!輕輕鬆鬆的就可以看完最有名的三個瀑布!從巴士站走路上去比較累,在中禪寺湖巴士總站附近,向土產店老闆娘借電話,酒店很快就派車來接! 溫泉很好!山中天氣變化很快!比城裡氣溫低很多!近了兩個晚上,第一晚天氣很好,在酒店門口就可以看到很多星星! 有英語流利的前台職員!很幫助親切有善!弟弟在離開後一天生日,他知道後還特地去找個禮品送給他!很喜歡酒店!一定會再來的! 中禪寺附近的風景真的很美! Nice and caring staff! Nice food! Very memorable! Will come again! Thanks for the perfect stay!

Hotel does not have a very imposing front entrance and reception but it is a 7 minute walk from Lake Chūzenji, 3 km from Kegon Falls and 18 km from the Nikkō Tōshō-gū shrine. The Autumn colours would be spectacular from here and the rooms look out onto woodlands. Staff were young, efficient and helpful but you do not get the intimacy of a traditional Japanese Ryokan. Some of the staff spoke English which was a great help in planning our trip in the area. Food was really good and beautifully presented. We were put in a private dining room and looked after very well. Rooms were spacious but very hot. Couldn't get the temperature down so a little uncomfortable.If we had stayed longer this is something I would definitely have worked out with the hotel team. Onsen was great.WiFi was free but random connectivity in the bedroom. Visited a lot of waterfalls and lakes from this stopover. No complaints
