What was most memorable of our 2 nights stay @ Nikko Senhime Monogatari in early April was its warm hospitality, even though only a few spoke English. We stayed in a Japanese style room with bed @ JPY 35280 on half board for 2 persons/night. The full size bottles of Kanebo face gel, toner and milk lotion in the bathroom were great. I also tried their 50 mins body massage @ JPY7350 which was rather good. The cherry blossoms were still not in bloom when we were there so the surrounding scenery is not much to rave about.
Our room on the 5/F was very spacious and the bed comfortable and it has a view of the stream and the mountains.The kaiseki dinners and breakfasts were appetising. Free intermittent wifi access is limited to the lobby area.
We bought the All Nikko Pass @ JPY4400 pp and travelled via Asakusa to Nikko. We made full use of the Pass to travel to Lake Chusenji and Yumoto Onsen area on both days. Without the pass, each trip from Bus stop 8 (nearest to Nikko Senhime) to Lake Chusenji would cost JPY1000 each per way. There was much hype about the beauty of Lake Chuzenji and Nikko as a whole, so it was a bit of a disappointment for us where Lake Chuzenji and Yumoto Onsen area are concerned. It was early spring so the whole lake area seem barren. It was very windy that day and we had to skip the walk to Kegon Falls which would be about 15 mins walk from the bus station. Yumoto Onsen area was totally deserted and the area looked abandoned. Perhaps the view would be pleasantly different during late spriing, summer or autumn. We did enjoy the short walk to Toshugo Shrine and Shinkyo Bridge!
