Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lucky to be there in both winter and summer. Shirakawago is such a popular place and it is advisable to plan and book your trip in advance. Our family stay in Takayama but travel to Shirakawago in a rented car and the journey starts with an unforgettable drive. Do not expect fancy dine-in experience but you will have the chance to taste authentic Japanese servings. The village looks stunning when it was covered with thick snow in winter whereas the blossom summer will leave another astonishing experience in your mind. If I have to choose one, my choice will be the snowy winter.

If you want to experience authentic Japanese sleeping arrangements and traditional food then you'd have fun here. Otherwise, you won't enjoy it. Only dinner and breakfast meals are served here so if you come here at lunch, there are limited options. There are very few restaurants and stores in the area and they all close by 5pm. Staff aren't too friendly either. Toilets and baths, you need to share with all hotel guests. If you don't mind mingling with strangers, then it's probably okay.

One of the best Ryokans to stay in Shirakawago village in my opinion. Just a walking distance from the bus station, the ryokan offers really a comfortable stay for my husband and I. We loved all the dinner and breakfast spread and our room had a great view! Service is also excellent! Highly recommended to book in advance as it is very popular especially during the light-up season

It is a natural hot spring. As we stayed at the Japanese Ryokan, Ohtaya, we were given a coupon to use at the onsen, whereby we would get a discount of 100 yen. We enjoy ourselves immersing in the comfort of the hot spring and relax. We tried both the indoor and outdoor onsen. We soaked slowly and comfortably, moving from indoor to outdoor . Truly a great way to heal the mind and body. After our onsen session, we went to the outdoor section to enjoy the scenery of the Shokawa river.

With its own in-house hot springs, dining, and sleep-on-the-floor experiences, and a beautiful village to wander around in, we truly enjoyed our one night stay here. Village was packed with tourists during the day, but by late afternoon it becomes a ghost town :) Great experience!

Hotel is located 3 minutes walk away from World Heritage site of Shirakawago village. Onsen (Hot spring) open to public as well and very nice Onsen with great view. Even though hotel looks old from outside, it is very clean and rooms are quite large as I got lucky as hotel give me 6 person family room even though our family is only 4 pax. Dinner is also very good and including Hida beef and very large servings.

I love this Shirakawago village and enjoyed the experience of staying one night at the Ryokan. I booked months ahead because I came during Japan cherry blossom season. We stayed in Japanese style room with shared bathroom. The hotel team prepared the futon for us while we had dinner. The room package came with breakfast and dinner. Dinner with Hida beef was excellent. It was one of the best dinner I had in Japan. Breakfast is also delicious with rice and grilled fish. The Ryokan also has onsen and it was a nice experience admiring the view inside the hot bath. The ryokan is within walking distance from the bus stop. We came using Nohi Bus from Kanazawa and going back using Nohi Bus to Takayama. Nohi Bus need to be reserved and you can reserve one month ahead.

Note that this is not a traditional gassho-zukuri house, but a purpose-built hotel building. 1. Location: Very near the bus terminal and good place to start the visit to Shirakawago. Oversees a picturesque river. 2. Rooms: I stayed in a Western-style room. It was smallish, but that is typical of Japan. It was comfortable. No en-suite toilets though. 3. Staff: Polite and functional. They had some difficulty communicating in English, but can manage. 4. Amenities: The set dinner (kaiseki) is not cheap, but it was tasty. Breakfast was also good. They have a hot bath area which was great because I visited in winter. Do note that there is only 1 toilet for each gender and 2 wash basins for all the 10+ rooms on the 2nd floor. This is a tad inconvenient, and might be a point to consider before deciding to book this facility.

Solo trip during Mid January 2018, is totally white whole area!!! Big snow during Visit! Travel from Takayama with Nohi Bus by Hokuriku Takayama Area Pass which included the bus fees! But please take note Nohi bus is need advance book by phone only before travel, simple to call the Nohi bus customer service line to book the seat for roundtrip, just need make sure provide your full name same as the Area Pass.
