I traveled to Nikko (日光) for three days and two nights in the middle of February for the first time in five years. Visiting Nikko in winter would be a good choice, since there are less tourists compared to other seasons (summer and autumn) and visitors are able to enjoy snow scenery. In this article, I will write about light-up around Nikko station as part of Day 1 and Nikko Station Hotel Classic where I stayed.

Light-up around Nikko Station
Following the previous post, I returned from Lake Chuzenji area and checked in “Nikko Station Hotel Classic”, which was located in front of JR Nikko station.
I will start to take photos around the hotel just before the sunset. First, JR Nikko station.
This was Tobu Nikko station.

I just found a cute taxi.
Kanaya Hotel Bakery.
From here, it was just after sunset. To begin with, JR Nikko station.
I like this retro atmosphere.
Nikko Station Hotel Classic was lighted up as well.

After the sun completely went down and I had a dinner, I took photos, including JR Nikko station, Tobu Nikko station and Nikko Station Hotel Classic.
Nikko Station Hotel Classic
I stayed at Nikko Station Hotel Classic on the first day and had dinner and breakfast in this hotel, so I will introduce the hotel here.
Here is the room where I stayed. The room was cozy.
There were three restaurants in the hotel and I visited a la carte restaurant “Terrace” for dinner.
I ordered “Nikko Gozen”.
On the following morning, I went to buffet restaurant “Plaisir” for breakfast.
The restaurant was open and bright atmosphere.
The breakfast was served as a buffet style and there were a variety of food.
I picked up both Japanese and Western food.
I sat on a window seat, so here is another photo.
Then, I checked out Nikko Station Hotel Classic and moved to the next destination.
That’s it for the article about light-up around Nikko station as part of Day 1 and Nikko Station Hotel Classic where I stayed.
To summarize Nikko Station Hotel Classic, I think the hotel was cost-effective considering its location, facilities and restaurants. In particular, the hotel was close to both JR Nikko station and Tobu Nikko station, so it was good as a starting point for sightseeing. In addition, there was a hot spring in the hotel, so if you like hot springs, I especially recommend this hotel 🙂
In the next article, I will write about Shinkyo Bridge and Nikkosan Rinno-Ji Temple as part of Day 2.
