Boasting hot-spring baths, a French restaurant and nature tours, the Eco-Institute is just a 10-minute drive from Shirakawa-Go traditional village, a UNESCO world heritage site. Staff very nice, they always services us. The place was greatly and convenient go to Shirakawago village.
1969 feet from Shirakawago, Shirakawago Guest House Kei is set in Shirakawa and offers rooms with free WiFi. All rooms feature a kitchen and a shared bathroom. The manager was especially kind he helped me with everything i needed even giving me an umbrella when i didn't have one and taking me to the bus station in his car even when i didn't ask everything in the guesthouse was great but his service was extraordinary
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. Great option to sleep for a night while visiting Shirakawa-go, there's a lot of space to put bags and things, it's comfortable, and the owners were really nice people to have a conversation with! Thank you!
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... Very warm and welcoming team. They really care about you. Beautiful location by the river and close to all the sight seeing places Perfect blend of traditional japanese housing with upgraded modern facilities. Very comfortable and super CLEAN. Kitchen and dining facilities were amazing for us. We travelled with an infant and were concerned about his food etc. But we never had any problems.
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. We initially thought it a little pricey while we compared accommodation. Little did we expect the memorable experience we would encounter. Shiroyamakan is a ryokan through and through. Expect warm hospitality, fluffy futons, remarkable food. The ryokan itself is authentic and beautiful from the room through to the entrance. Our room is all the way in at the back, and literally perched beside the river. It is bright, clean and very spacious. There is a comfortable common area with a bean-to-cup coffee machine. Meals are served in ornate private dining rooms. The ryokan is passed down from generations to this generation and is run by a cohesive family, each family member seems clear with their own roles. Added to their movie star looks it feels like we were living in a period drama. What made it memorable was not just warm service and beautiful room. The room is beside the Sho river that runs through shirakawa-go. Sleeping to the sound of rapids is unforgetable. Included in the price is kaiseki that we would go back just to have it again. The kaiseki is varied and they used what we could only say are the finest seasonal ingredients. Featured in our dinner are a special cut of hida beef, fish caught in a nearby river, gold flakes and many more fresh fruits and vegetables. Shiroyamakan have their own home made miso. It is sweet and flavourful (which unfortunately our luggage does not permit us to buy some back). Our breakfast was served in the room overlooking their private garden and also the river. The meals are unforgetable. The ryokan does not have a bath. Some might find it inconvenient but to us, the short walk in yukata and the utterly relaxing dip in the natural onsen (hotspring) (entrance included) were also unforgetable.
Offering river views, 1日2組 むかしのままの古民家宿 みのり家 is an accommodations set in Takayama, 16 mi from Hida Minzoku Mura Folk Village and 17 mi from Fuji Folk Museum. The service was exceptional. The family was very friendly and generous who was attentive to detail; they always looked after our comfort. Although the house is old in age, it was very charming, has a lot of character, and is equipped with modern amenities. The food was fantastic; the host is an excellent cook! And, the children were adorable. You can tell a lot of energy and love went into the house.
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.
