This joint has been in operation for 130 years! It's a historical artifact! As a result, it's got a little character and shows a little wear and tear. But its location can't be beat -- right across the bridge from the temples in Nikko -- the closest accommodation to the temples. The rooms are "Western" (which means you sleep in beds, not on futons). There are other places to stay in Nikko. (I stayed at a Ryoken here 20 years ago). But the Kanays is probably the best choice in town, as long as you aren't bothered by a few eccentricities (such as a musty smell from the humidity in this part of Japan).
