Visited just the Onsen. Nice and clean, good price and outside bath was wonderful. Receptionist didn't speak English, but there was a machine to buy entrance to the onsen. Would like to stay again but as a hotel guest.

The Nohi bus station next to Takayama JR sells bus tickets to this attraction. Got ours the day before and caught the first bus in the morning to the village on New Years Day. It was quiet and not crowded adding to the charm of the village. Lots of pictures with the Gassho houses and played in the snow. Bought...

When I arrived , the receptionist was not helpful in providing local tour related information . Subsequently in the evening , when me and my friends enquired the dinner opening time of the restaurant, the rudeness of the front desk staff who kept pounding on the table was so unappreciated. However it gave us no choice but to dine at...

We arrived in Shirakawago by bus from Kanazawa. The hotel is an easy walk from the station. It was cold and rainy so we were grateful they had our room ready early and we could stash our luggage, run around taking pictures until our fingers froze and return to their marvelous onsen. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and...

Great location for an overnight stay at World Heritage village Ogimachi. Good food and fantastic onsen including outdoor tubs looking out over a river. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and service was friendly. Highly recommend.

The hotel is a few minutes walk from the bus stop which was very convenient. The onsen (same gender only) was great. Dinner was lovely and so was breakfast although not our personal taste food wise. Rooms are minimalistic and futon sleeping wasn't the most comfortable. Overall a very nice experience.

First time visiting Shirakawa-go. A small town but very unique in the way the houses were built. This accommodation, very clean and nice. Food provided were breakfast and dinner and taste good. Will plan to visit again in a different season.

This is a hot spring hotel . All staff are polite and nice. We can have Japanese breakfast and dinner here. Beautiful views ,houses and shops everywhere especially we looked down from a small highland . We stayed just one night in August. I think it should be very beautiful in winter with snow.
