KAI Nikko

Enjoy the Sights of Nikko with Our Free Shuttle Bus Service

Hoshino Resorts is now operating a free shuttle bus, the “Nikko KAI Bus”, for guests who stays at our KAI brand property in Tochigi prefecture, KAI Nikko, KAI Kinugawa, or KAI Kawaji. This bus makes a stop at the Tobu Nikko Station; a convenient central location for Nikko’s World Heritage sites. Also, at the famous Akechidaira Observation Area and Kegon Falls, to give a convenient option to access the local sights to our guests instead of just letting them stay at the hot spring ryokan.



■The “Nikko KAI Bus” 3 big features

  1. All free for KAI guest
    The “Nikko KAI Bus” is free for all KAI guests. We recommend spending your first night at KAI Kawaji and your second at KAI Nikko to maximize your opportunities to see the local sights.
  2. Leave your bags behind and enjoy the sights of Okunikko
    During the main route, leaving KAI Kawaji / KAI Kinugawa to KAI Nikko, the bus will make stops at Akechidaira and Kegon Falls. There, guests will get to discover picturesque scenery that demonstrates the beauty of Okunikko. Normally, it is necessary to transfer trains and buses to go to Okunikko from KAI Kawaji or KAI Kinugawa, but our “Nikko KAI Bus” can solve the problem and will offer the easy access to all the popular sightseeing spots. We even allow guests to leave their luggage on the bus during sightseeing stops. Nothing can be more convenient than this!
  3. Courtesy transport from Tobu Nikko Station to lodging & pre-and-post-stay sightseeing access
    The “Nikko KAI Bus” stops at each of the three KAI hot spring ryokans and Tobu Nikko Station. The station is a great central location to go see the shrines and temples of Nikko (World Heritage sites), starting with the Toshogu Shrine.
