I cannot recommend this place enough. If you need a place to stay in Nikko, please don’t look anywhere else. Nikko Park Lodge is so magical, with the innkeeper (Ken-san), one of the nicest people you’ll probably ever meet.
I booked my stay through Booking.com for merely JPY3,000 a night in the dormitory room. IT IS really cold in Nikko, so even if they have an electric blanket, prepare well.
They have two places – one right in front of Tobu Nikko station (honestly, go out of the exit (there’s only one), and look up. Their station lodge should be around a hundred meters straight ahead. Once you get there, there’s a free car ride from the station lodge to the mountain one from 3pm to 6pm.
Just look at the mountain lodge! Oh, warning, there’s nothing around it. So buy your food etc before going up.
