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. This was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had! The food was beautifully presented; uniquely and deliciously flavored. We had the best homemade sake! We dined privately and the staff was super attentive and sweet.The public bathing experience is definitely interesting and the Onsen is the cherry on top! Our room was spacious (like having our own apt) and clean. Lastly, sleeping on the tatami mat was quite comfortable!
Featuring free WiFi throughout the property, Shiroyamakan offers accommodations in Shirakawa, 0.9 mi from Shirakawago. Free private parking is available on site. The entire property is nonsmoking. The Family who lives in this house are the main highlight here. They did all what they could to make it such a memorable stay and i would never forget that night i spent there. Starting from the moment we arrived and they offered spring water and green tea. They also took us on a tour around explaining around the area and main attractions and took us to scenic spots to have the best photos. The father and son are chefs, which in my opinion should be granted a Mechilin star for the sophisticated & outstanding food that we had; more than 12 course set for dinner and a hearty breakfast to keep u full the whole day. We were so lucky we went on the season of fire flies so they offered to take us to the spot where we can spot then at the late evening. It was like magic to me. They then dropped us with the cards they gave us to a near by local onsen so we can have the onsen experience or bath... was such an experience to me.. Over all I can’t say there was a one “not perfect” thing about that place Those were the best people i have met in my life and i hope to go there again.

Lots of Gassho house to see but viewpoint is closed in winter and the historic museum with some of the oldest houses is closed on Thursdays. Shirakawa is the best place to see the Gassho houses, we visited the others and they were not as good. If you are driving, watch out for the steep car park price (1000 yen). Plan your meals in advance as there are not many places to eat.
You can never go wrong here It’s the real meaning of perfection. Food, locals, scenario, history, hotspring, and much more. I would definitely come back it’s one of my best kept secret places ever
We enjoyed the outdoor museum across the bridge. We learned all about how they make the houses making it more enjoyable when we actually went inside them. We ate at a soba restaurant near the outdoor museum that had great hida beef soba.
Everything here is great. It just as its a village (like really village) everything is in cash. You cant find an atm with visa or mastercard, or money changer, so make sure you change your money beforehand.
Hostels are very expensive in Shirakawago. No need to stay . Just go in the morning and leave in the evening. The whole village plus the hilltop view can be covered in less than 4 hours. It's just next to the bus terminal. Leave your luggage in the lockers or info office at the bus terminal for 500yen.
