Featuring a bar and shared lounge, as well as a restaurant, Onyado Yuinosho is located in Shirakawa. Each accommodation at the 4-star hotel has mountain views, and guests can enjoy access to a sauna. Very new place, perfectly situated for day trips to Shinakawago. Good amenities included private hot baths. No bath in the room but it was no problem to use one of the two private baths. They provide an abundance of towels and Yukata which made it easy to move between room and baths. Traditional Japanese breakfast was amazing. Good parking and easy to get to once you get to Shirakawago.
Renovated in August 2017, Shirakawago Terrace, a century-old traditional Japanese wooden house, is located in Shirakawa, just a 10-minute walk away from the famous Shirakawago Ogimachi Gassho-Shuraku... Excellent Service and great location in Shirakawa. Coco and Kei are very nice hosts and do everything for your comfort.
Fujiya is a charming hot-spring hotel with 24-hour indoor and outdoor hot spring pools. A 15-minute drive from Shirakawa-go Bus Station, it provides Japanese-style rooms with free Wi-Fi. Every last detail of Fujiya is beautiful and well chosen. It was the highlight of our honeymoon and the best ryokan we’ve stayed in (we’ve stayed in quite a few).
Featuring free WiFi throughout the property, Shiroyamakan offers accommodation in Shirakawa, 1.4 km from Shirakawago. Free private parking is available on site. The entire property is non-smoking. 135 year old ryokan run by the fourth generation Food truly outstanding each part a work of art. Delightful family. Wonderful village to tour and guests are given an overview tour. I highly recommend this ryokan.
Guest House Ant Hut is located in Shirakawa-go village, a 20-minute walk from the bus terminal Ogimachi at Shirakawa-go World Heritage Village. Free private parking is available on site. Good hospitality and warm welcome from Watanabe family :) Arigato Gosaimashita
Set in Shirakawa, 500 metres from Shirakawago, Shirakawa-Go INN has a number of amenities including a garden, a bar, a shared lounge and free WiFi. The bed was good!Had a good sleep. The management was very accommodating. The place though small was perfect for the visitors to have good conversations in getting to know them.
Boasting a terrace, Shirakawago no Yu is set in Shirakawa in the Gifu region, 1.7 km from Shirakawago. The accommodation offers a hot spring bath, sauna, restaurant and free WiFi. Shirakawa-go no Yu is nestled within the heritage village of Shirakawa-go, right opposite the bus terminal, yet still a little removed from the main hustle and bustle of the shopping street. the entrance is along the main road, but the main building is a little behind, which makes it quiet and convenience at the same time. For the price we paid, we got a lovely nights stay, and for a mere 150yen we got to use the onsen which had both outdoor and indoor facilities. we drove over in the snowstorm, and the staff was clearly concerned for us, and attended to us immediately. In the morning they even helped me park my car the right way so the snowfall won't get on the roof so much and when I got back from my tour around the village, all the snow around the car and above the car had been shovelled away. i was initially a little concerned because of the mixed reviews i read but I can say for certain that this is a great experience and a great place with wonderful facilities and helpful staff.
An amazing experience! But I’ll recommend just to spend the day, donnot stay there, it doesn’t worth it unless you pay for staying in one of the local houses to live the experience. Everything at 4pm is dead, so if you arrive at 10am and stay until 4pm it’s perfect. Looooove that amazing and magic place!
Ogimachi is the visited village in ShirakWago. It is famous and heavily touristic mainly because the old stached roof houses. Most of the tourist come on organized day tours either from Takayama or Kanazawa. Better bring your own wheels. The "White road" from there to Kanazawa takes you through the Japanies alps with stunning views, beautiful waterfalls and natural hot springs.
Pros: Outdoor onsen with snow flakes snowing on you Meals was great Service was good Cons: A little far from the bus terminal; need to take a 20 Min bus and no pick up service A little pricey
Gussho style houses in main village are attractive things for many people. So there are large amount of travelers come to visit during daytime. Everywhere you can see a lot of people. It’s in lonesome again after bus terminated. Ainokura is one of good choices for tranquility and feel closer to local.
This Unesco Heritage site is a must-visit! The quaint and charming village has so much history and culture appeal. I visited during fall and the glorious colours of Mother Nature were truly a sight to behold - absolutely gorgeous! Go up to the Look-Out spot, stay a while and take in all that breathless beauty.
Spent 2 days in Shirakawa-go area to see the traditional gassho-style Japanese farm houses. This is such a scenic area, and I wish we had spent a few more days here to include some hiking. We had a rental car, so it was easy to drive up to the Ogimachi Castle observation deck (free parking and free of charge) just before sunset. It's an amazing and scenic view of the Skirakawa-go valley, with all the UNESCO heritage buildings. We also visited the local onsen (hotspring) and the Gassho Zukuri Minka-en heritage recreated village "museum park". There is limited English in the displays, however it is interesting to walk through these d buildings and see how life was for these people. We found the video (towards the end of the tour loop) explaining how the gassho are built, the most informative piece in the whole park. Worth a watch! Parking at the Gassho Zukuri was very expensive (¥1,000 per entry), but we left our car there then walked across the extension bridge into the main town, to walk around for the day. In the day, just walking the streets of the town is super relaxing and quaint. Enjoy a stroll along the 2 mainstreets, visit a temple, and eating street vendor snacks: ice cream, Hida beef buns, etc.
