Renovated in August 2017, Shirakawago Terrace, a century-old traditional Japanese wooden house, is located in Shirakawago, just a 10-minute walk away from the famous Shirakawago Ogimachi World...

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. The owner is an old and super nice woman. We came here for the Higurashi animation, and she introduced a local who is fascinated by this anime. He drove us around the village, introducing many scenes in the anime. The night was excellent: you can only hear frogs, and see the stars. Only living in the village can allow you to walk around the village in the morning ~6am without too many visitors bothering.
Located in Shirakawa, 656 feet from Shirakawago, Onyado Yuinosho provides accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a bar and a shared lounge. The staff were warm and friendly and accommodating. Beautiful view of the river with the sounds of rushing water to lull me to sleep.

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. Fujiya was absolutely wonderful. A stylish, new ryokan in traditional style. The food was absolutely amazing. Despite the fact that they had not received our message that we are vegetarian, they made a wonderful dinner and breakfast for us that exceeded all expectations. The rooms a very beautiful, traditional, and immaculately clean. The onsen is just pefect!
Make sure to do your research on the days of snowfall if you qant to catch them with snow on their thatched roofs, because there's not much else to do other than explore the village. During off-peak seasons the town is in lull and not many places are open.
Beautiful villages with various very old wooden house that was amazing and I got a spot on Japanese local television by short interview there :))) I never been there so far so that this time was an unforgettable memories of mine. I will come again in Summer or Autumn time to take more pictures and enjoy local food here.
Beautiful village, quiet and peaceful. I went in December and there were not so many tourists which was nice. The heritage museum has some fantastic traditional Japanese architecture, apart form that you can enter some of the houses in the village that are not part of the museum. There are some restaurants and coffee places, I eat some really good udon there (it was in a traditional house, off the main village road) for 1000 yen. There is a small supermarket close to the bus station. Everything in walking distance (if someone doesn't want to climb up to the view point, there is a bus that goes there every 20 minutes. You can also visit an onsen and relax there (700 yen if you have your own towel). As a non japanew speaker I had no problems, many people spoke English.
A day trip is sufficient to cover this very pretty town. A must visit if you are in Takayama as it’s only 50mins away by bus. 6 hours will be comfortable ( 10am to 4 pm ). Take a bus to the observation point to see the view of the town, a 3 mins ride up for 200Yen per person per way. Make time to enter and tour the houses.
This is a beautiful World Heritage town in a gorgeous setting. Although reviews indicated that it was overrun by tourists, we actually found it to be really accessible and interesting, and were very happy that we chose to visit for an overnight trip in order to have the time to explore the town and surroundings.
Is a beautiful little village. Unfortunately, most tourists come for a day trip only, so it can become a little commercial. Best to stay a night, so you can stroll/jog around before or after the tourists have left. Also recommend going to one/two towns nr by.
