Kobayashi-san is wonderful. She drove us from the train station and after helping us with our plans and maps, drove us to our first sight. Later, it started to rain during dinner. As we were getting ready to leave the restaurant, to our surprise, Yoshiko was there to pick us up and drive us so we wouldn't have to walk in the rain! (What other host has ever done that for you?) The next morning, she drove us to the bus stop, but we needed to use the ATM, and when we missed the bus to Lake Chuzenji, she chased the bus most of the way up the mountain until she caught it and we were able to ride the bus the rest of the way. And I haven't even mentioned the accommodations...
The house is great. This is your chance to stay in a real Japanese home, including tatami mats, traditional bath, sit on the floor table, and pretend it is yours. (Even if someone else stocked the fridge for breakfast). The location is close to the main sights. The "Abyss" is just up the road, which makes a nice early morning walk. It is clean. And it is non-smoking.
If putting bread in a toaster or pouring your own juice is more than you can handle, don't say here. Otherwise, your stay in Nikko at Cottage FU-SHA could easily be the highlight of your visit to Japan. You could make a new friend. THANK YOU Kobayashi-san!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- "VERY COSY". We opened FU-SHA in September, 2007. We wanted to show people from all over the WORLD the beauty, both natural and man made that Nikko offers. Since our home is directly across the street from the cottage, we are able to provide assistance when you need it during your stay at the cottage. This private Japanese style cottage has a small sitting room, a small kitchen, a large modern bathroom and can sleep up to 5 people. The rooms are Japanese style rooms with tatami mats and divided by fusuma(sliding doors). Japanese futons are laid on the tatami mats and they are very comfortable to sleep on. There are a microwave oven, a toaster, a refrigerator, a coffee maker, an electric pot and tableware in the kitchen. The bathroom has a big bathtub and a shower. In addition, there is an amazing Japanese high-tech toilet. The cottage has a high speed internet( wireless). My ancestors came to Nikko approximately 130 years ago and we have been living here ever since. Therefor we have all the information on Nikko you would like to know and we are happy to share that with you. We will happily provide a pick up from Nikko station.
