More about Honke Bankyu

This hotel in Nikko boasts an open-air bath, the source of which has been found in 1666, with the Yunishi River flowing right by. The building is registered as a historical monument. Guests can experience how it's like to stay in a traditional Japanese private residence built long ago. The interior part of the building is built along the river, made with choice wood and earthen walls. Japanese-style guestrooms are furnished with futon and equipped with flat-screen TVs. Guests can choose from 5 hot springs, and enjoy local cuisine for dinner. Rooms equipped with air-conditioning units have paper-sliding doors and tatami mats, adding a Zen atmosphere. A lush, refreshing scenery can be seen from the guestrooms. There are also yukata and private toilets. Some rooms have private baths. For meals, guests will cross a Kazura-bashi (hanging rope bridge) to get to the dining hall to enjoy charcoal-grilled irori cuisine. Requests for private rooms or seats are accepted.

    Our stay at Honke Bankyu was a deeply relaxing and satisfying experience. I felt as though our journey into the mountains was a trip back in time, to an era of thoughtful hospitality and richness of detail. The setting is sublime, tucked into a river bank

    It is beautiful old ryokan with much character. The ambient and environment was pleasing and the food is generally good. We drove, otherwise the place may be a little far to access via public transport. Overall it was an enjoyable experience.

    Main building is very impressive but our room was in the annex thus only giving it 3 stars. The annex is just a plain building and uncomfortable to access as you have to cross through a super cold outdoor area in yukata+slippers, though interior was nicely

    View was fantastic but I felt that service could be much better though. Compared to other ryokans we stayed, Honke came across as only average in comparison, given the pricey cost.

    Honke Bankyu is one of the most picturesque places we have ever stayed. It snowed the whole time we were there, which made it even more beautiful. Make sure you have your camera.
