Located in the Gokayama hot-spring area, Gokasanso offers Japanese and Western-style accommodations with a flat-screen TV. What a wonderful surprise! 3 minutes drive from Suganuma World Heritage Village in a huge room with a mountain view, wonderful onsen and really delicious food, Gokasanso is a place I will definitely return to.
Featuring a garden, Guest house Kazura is located in Nanto. Among the facilities at this property are a shared kitchen and a shared lounge, along with free WiFi throughout the property. I like the fact that it is 350 years old yet they manage to keep it occupiable. The place is fairly clean for an old house.
The 200 years old Minshuku Goyomon lies amid Ainokura Village, a World Heritage Site with centuries old Gassho-style houses and a traditional local community. The house itself is a Japanese work of art. It is kept as is except for the modernized bathroom and toilet. Bowl is fully automated. You get the flashback of living your childhood if you grew up in a rural place. Absolutely recommended to those who want to experience Japanese village life in a day or two.
Featuring free WiFi, Guest House YAMASHITA-YA offers accommodations in Nanto, 19 mi from Kanazawa. Free private parking is available on site. Shirakawa Village is a 40-minute bus ride away. The owner is very helpful. Even though I had two days plan to stay at her facility, she advised to move to city as the snow was getting heavy. Because of her advise I escaped severe climate in which lot of people got stuck. Even before the travel she had warned the climate will be severe and she is okay to accept cancelation with out any fine. Gave snow boots to go for sight seeing in the snow and gave lot of good survival tips. I recommend staying here.
At Akaokan, guests can relax in the spacious public hot-spring baths and visit the Historic Villages of Shirakawa-gō and Gokayama, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located a 20-minute drive away. The room was very spacious and equipped with hot water, tea, delicious cakes and a wonderful private seating area. The traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast were complimentary and were delicious. Using the onsen was a luscious experience. We got a glimpse of what the Japanese living quarters were like for the merchants and samurai of old. It was a highly relaxing and rejuvenating stay.
Real raw natural environment. Cultural richness. Easy access for solo traveling , taking in consideration the kind of area. Go Onsen Go Hiking Go Eat out Learn Japanese culture Get to know the locals
I like the warm hospitality, clean fully equipped facilities, basic needs that you can buy or rent If ever you missed something and they serve delicious meal for dinner and breakfast at a reasonable price. I highly recommend this place to anyone who want to experience the Japanese omotenashi (hospitality)
We felt Ainokura was the best of the thatched gassho-zukuri villages to stay over-night in-least tour buses. It's very different after the buses leave, so stay over-night. Late afternoons and mornings are so nice, and you will really see and stay in a very traditional home with a family.
Great location for seeing the nearby gassho villages. Staff was very helpful even with language barriers. The room given to me was spacious and comfortable save the bed pillows, which were hard and small enough to make sleeping difficult at first. Food is classic washoku, and depending on your love of fish, may be a good or bad thing. (I thought it was all delicious!) The onsen was clean and very relaxing. All in all, a good winter trip spent.
The hot spring and local music introduction is nice and exceeding expectation . And accommodation and food are valued for money. And if you manage the local bus it is nice traveling around to see the live villages. It would be nice if hotel can arrange the short excursion give their resources available.
Good guest house for visiting Gokayama and Nanto area. The old style building is impressive and the staffs are honest and kind. Bed-room is just under the roof that is also traditional style. They have a cat for pet (extraordinary cute!).
Beautifully decorated home in an excellent location in Nanto. Delicious and large breakfast served the the cafe down the road. Very clean home with great facilities.
The great guesthouse in Nanto. Very clean and comfy also the staff are very nice and helpful.
