Kinugawa Kanaya Hotel is a luxurious accommodation located in Kinugawa Onsen Ohara in Tochigi Prefecture. It features large Japanese-style and Western-style rooms.

All 39 rooms offer a wooden terrace with a view of Kinugawa River Valley and boasts of maximum comfort with its soundproofed walls, and a choice of pillows from feather, buckwheat husk, and Tempurpedic. Guests can also request an aroma diffuser or an in-room massage. Some rooms will have their own hot spring baths. One night’s stay can range from 60,000 to 95,000 JPY.

A unique take on the traditional multi-course meals, Kanaya Kaiseki Wakeiyosan is the hotel’s own creation. A culinary style that tailors traditional Japanese dishes to Western tastes. It utilizes modern and classic techniques from Western schools of cooking and is prepared with local seasonal ingredients sourced from Tochigi and around the country.

Alternatively, guests can choose the Kanaya Yuba Kaiseki Keiryusuinei that features river produce and seafood as well as seasonal vegetables from Nikko. A choice of Western and Japanese cuisine is served for breakfast, either in the guest rooms or in the dining room.

Kinugawa Kanaya Hotel offers a choice of an ancient cypress bath or the more modern four seasons bath–both of which use a schedule to alternate between male and female guests.

The ancient cypress baths feature two kinds of outdoor hot-spring baths, one made of white granite and of an ancient cypress tree. The four seasons bath features an indoor marble bath and two outdoor baths made of white granite. There is also a sauna and a gazebo for cooling off between baths.

Kinugawa Kanaya Hotel can be accessed by taking the Tobu Limited Express from Asakusa Station in Tokyo, or the JR Limited Express from Shinjuku Station to Shimo-imaichi, then Kinugawa Onsen Station.

An escort can be provided for the guests upon reservation. The establishment is operating normally with safety measures in place and limited acceptance to prevent the spread of infection.

A historic luxury property that has aged gracefully
Given The Kinugawa Kanaya is a classic luxury hotel that more than holds its own against newer competition. Three areas allow it to stand out: the food, the view and the service. We were pleasantly surprised at how fresh the interior was - everywhere from the reception/lobby to the rooms were in really good shape (not a scuff mark in sight.) And, unlike many "grand dame" style properties, the decor was not dark and drab in any way. It still retains its historic and classy charm, but has adapted itself to go with the times. We felt the service was perfect. Kanaya deftly managed the perfect balance of formality and attentiveness with finesse and grace - all of that without being overly stuffy in the process. The dining experience was an absolute highlight, and among the top 5 meals we've ever had at any top-flight hotel/ryokan in Japan (and that's saying something, believe me!) The Mrs. and I both agreed that there was not a single dish (of many) that we felt was not incredible. And here's another aspect where Kanaya continually improves - they don't allow its classic style to mean old-fashioned in the food department, either. Each dish was familiar, but was prepared and flavored in a very unique and innovative way. It was certainly not a case of "we've had it before, but it's a bit better here" kind of experience. Example: one of the courses was Bouillabaisse, but it was no ordinary Bouillabaisse - the soup contained White Miso (soybean paste), among other things, and it was amazing. And, of course, they used local seafood which consisted of Sea Bream, Japanese Tiger Prawn, Scallops and local vegetables. It was amazing. It was either the best Bouillabaisse we've ever had (if you can call it Bouillabaisse), and if not, then it was definitely the best soup-based dish we've ever tasted. It was that good. If there's a knock against the Kanaya, it's with the rooms - specifically the size of them. Given the rather exorbitant prices that it commands (mind you, the prices are inflated everywhere in the Nikko area by Japan standards), you would think that rooms would be a bit more spacious than they actually are. It's not claustrophobia-inducing, but certainly not roomy enough to want to spend all day lazing away in the room. While the Kanaya has 7 room categories, the actual room size of all of them - save for the John Kanaya Suite - are 66 square meters, with the only difference among them being the floor they're located in, whether the guests have club lounge access, balcony size, and the location of the private in-room onsen bath (some are on the balcony, whereas others are in the room itself.) Kinugawa Kanaya Hotel emphatically dispels the notion that "historic" does not necessarily have to mean outdated, old-fashioned, snobby and in need of a massive refurbishment. It shines in just about all aspects, with the room size and price the only thing keeping it from being an all-time great.

The Classic Kanaya in Nikko
Exactly what's written on the tin. The classic hotel in Nikko. Great location - top of the hill - for the sacred shrines and temples, and for jumping off to the lakes further up the valley. But close enough to head down Main street, stop off at the craft shops, and pull in at the train/bus station for local touring. Very old-school design, and somewhat formal, but very welcoming and not to be missed even to swing by for lunch on the way to the shrines. Pricey, in-keeping with Nikko's price-iness, but not out of line. A classic, to be savoured.

Service, impressive.
An excellent stay at this Kanaya. The staff are not only professional and attentive but also very kind hearted. Whilst we were trying to eat dinner with a very demanding two year old the restaurant staff offered to play with our little one for a while so we could finish off our meal, things like this make a big difference. Thoroughly recommended, nice baths and ambience around the hotel. If you bring wine for dinner the corkage is a little expensive at 3500 yen and there isn't a *convenience shop in the hotel, or drink machines. A small trade off for an excellent stay.

Good food, good chocoloates, good onsen, nice view... but rooms a little small
Dinner at the restaurant is very delicious, with a dessert trolley at the lounge area after dinner. They seem to be specialising in chocolate confectionery, as can be seen in the extensive range sold in the gift shop. The view overlooking the valley is nice, and the onsen is big and nicely furbished. The only downside is the small-ish room size, and the old-ish decor in the room. another minor complaint, it took us about 30min to check in, despite being the only customer at that time.

Excellent service but too expensive.
I kept reading reviews online to research more about the hotel and I've been reading the best reviews. No one brings up how expensive it is and I don't feel that it was really worth it. The onsen - The view or ambiance wasn't nice. I wish it had a better view to compensate for the expensive price. - It did have complete amenities and everything else you'd need The rooms - Very nice but old. Food - Beautifully made - Small portions - Expensive Service - Superb
