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.

I went to Shirakawa Go in January 2023. I check in to the place around 3 pm. My room was ready to live in. The owner is very polite and gentle to greeting and welcome me. The guesthouse arranged good facilities for clients such as restrooms separted with shower rooms, snacks corner for sale if the residents need even kitchen area where prepared fully equipment you may need to prepare your own meal. If I have chance to visit Shirakawa Go again, I will book this place again.

バイクツーリングで一泊しました。booking.com掲載ページを見て良い意味でイメージしていた通りの宿でした。バックパッカー宿にありがちな共有スペースでビデオや音楽が流れてガヤガヤしてなく、白川郷の静かなゆるりとした時間を過ごせました。木のぬくもりある旧民家を改築してあり、必要最低限の白熱灯風の照明、個人的な好みですが良い雰囲気です。 ロケーションは集落から少し離れています。私はバイクで来たので何とも無いでしたが、バスで来られる方はバスターミナルから宿まで20分以上歩きながら探すかなと思います。

白川郷の合掌集落から役場方向へ1.5キロのゲストハウス。集落の駐車場は有料なので、ここに停めて歩いてもいい。コンビニ徒歩圏内。 1億総コロナヒステリー冷めやらぬ6月の終わり、集落は超閑散として、外出のリスクとしてはコロナ云々より引き続き交通事故のほうがはるかに深刻だろと考える少数派の私にとっては、絶好の観光チャンス。ゲストハウス客も私だけで、快適だった。設備はいずれも清潔で、キッチン充実。 オーナーとの酒盛りが想定外の特典&思い出になった。サービス業を営むご本人から、こんなにタダ酒を頂戴したのは恐らく初めて。ごちそうさまでした。 難点を挙げるとすれば、近所のカエルたちの合唱。よほど育ちがいいのか、一晩中大声で鳴く。私は耳栓しました。

ผมและเพื่อนได้ไปเข้าพักที่ Shirakawago guest house KEI วันที่ผ่านมา และพบว่าที่นี่มีบรรยากาศดีมาก การบริการด้านความสะดวกสบายครบถ้วน ทั้งห้องครัว ห้องทานอาหาร ห้องน้ำ และที่สำคัญคือห้องนอนก็สบายมากเช่นกัน แต่นอกเหนือจากนั้น ผมได้เกิดลืมพระที่พกติดตัวไปไว้ที่หัวเตียง โดยนึกขึ้นได้ในวันที่ที่ถัดมาแล้วไม่สามารถขับรถไปที่พักได้อีก จึงพยายามติดต่อผ่านทาง booking.com ที่ได้จองที่พักไปแต่การติดต่อยังไม่ได้รับการตอบกลับ พอกลับมาไทย ผมจึงได้หาข้อมูลติดต่อทางที่พัก โดยส่งเมลล์แจ้งไป2 ทาง คือ Shirakawago Tourist Association และ ทางเมลล์ของเจ้าของที่พักโดยตรง ชื่อคุณ Takao Sasaki โดยได้รับการติดต่อกลับทันทีจากทั้ง 2 ที่ ขอชื่นชมทั้งหน่วยงานกลาง Shirakawago Tourist Association และคุณTakao Sasaki ที่ติดต่อกลับอย่างไวมาก ซึ่งจากการแจ้งไปแล้ว พบพระของผมอยู่จริง จึงรบกวนให้ส่งกลับ โดยผมยินดีรับผิดชอบค่าใช้จ่ายทั้งหมดเอง แต่ปรากฏว่าทางคุณTakao Sasaki ยินดีส่งให้โดยไม่คิดค่าบริการผม และในวันนนี้ ผมได้รับพระที่ผมลืมบรรจุมาในซองไปรษณีย์ที่ปกป้องอย่างดี รวมถึงได้รับ Postcard จากทางคุณTakao Sasaki แห่งShirakawago Guest House Kei ไปการไปเที่ยวประเทศญี่ปุ่นที่ประทับใจมาก และขอประชาสัมพันธ์ความมีน้ำใจในการบริการและความน่ารักของประเทศญี่ปุ่น เจ้าหน้าที่จากShirakawago Tourist Association และคุณTakao Sasaki แห่งShirakawago Guest House Kei เป็นอย่างยิ่ง แน่นอนผมต้องกลับไปพักผ่อนที่นี่อีกครั้ง และกลับไปเที่ยวญี่ปุ่นอีกแน่นอน Thank you very mush

The location is about 10-15 min walk from the bus station. You can take a local bus and get off just a minute from the hostel, but bear in mind that the bus is not very frequent, when I arrived I would have to wait 30 minutes for the next bus so I decided to just walk, it's not far but in the Japanese summer of 32 degrees and carrying a luggage it wasn't great. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they sent me detailed instructions on how to get to the hostel and answered all the question I had before and after check-in. There is a Daily convenience store a few minutes away, where I bought all my food and drinks. I stayed in the shared room, the beds are quite spacious, there isn't a lot of space for big luggage, but I had small luggage so it was fine. The common area is quite comfortable and a good way to meet other travellers. There's also free tea/coffee which was really good. Wifi worked well and was very fast. The showers are quite good, but there are only 2. Also, there are only 2 toilets. It wasn't a problem though as the place was not too busy. Cons: No hand soap, I don't know why? No laundry facilities. Having at least some coin-operated laundry or laundry service would be very handy.

After a long trip from Osaka to Shirakawa-go, my friends and I searched for Kei guesthouse. When we opened the door, we could already see his friendly smile. And that was really a relief. The house was nice, simple, comfortable. The owner was so very nice and we were amazed when he offered us to drive us to the bus station because we missed the one at the bus stop. If I can visit Shirakawa-go again, without a doubt I'll stay at Kei Guesthouse. Thanks a lot for your kindness.

I stayed in this hostel because it's within walking distance to the heritage site but also it's the last accommodation I can find as I only decided to head to Shirakawago after I found out I had to go Japan for a business trip. I was just lucky to find the last available room (it's a cosy room for two near the kitchen) in the area. That said, it was a fantastic choice! The room was sparkling clean and of good size. The shared facilities were very well kept and a lady was constantly cleaning the area. When we were preparing our dinner (instant noodles) she helped us by watching out for the boiling water. The guests who stayed at the shared bedroom were very quiet too and everyone was just doing their own thing. We arrived at about 12pm and was allowed to check in as the room was available. After leaving our stuffs, the owner offered to drive us to the village (which was actually just 20mins walk from the bus station). it was raining the two full days during our stay so we were appreciative of this gesture. The guest house also provides shuttle service from bus station to the hostel. This is really helpful during our stay because it was raining the whole day, imagine walking 20mins under the rain/snow :( Overall, this was a good stay and I will go back there should I visit Shirakawago again.

A new guesthouse with a traditional design. Located just 15-20 minutes walk to the bus station, and 10 minutes walk to a mini-market. I stayed in a private room which is very spacious, comfortable and has heater. Kitchen and bathrooms are shared, but it was all clean. The hostel has a cozy living room which can accommodate around 15 people and I had a nice conversation with other travelers there. The hostel also provide slippers that you can use around the hostel and umbrellas for you to bring during your sightseeing at Shirakawago. Perfect hostel for mid-range travelers!

This is a good place to stay for those who wish to spend more time in the village instead of travelling in for a day trip. The hostel is cozy and clean, the host is always present and helpful. It is a good 20 minutes walk from the village bus stop though, so please do bear that in mind if you have heavy luggage. Otherwise, all is perfect.

This guesthouse is new and has a nice, fresh smell of wood. The bedding is clean and comfortable and each dorm bed has curtains which ensure privacy. Kitchen and toilets/bathrooms are shared, but they are also kept in a clean condition. The staff are friendly - their information on the Doburoku Festival was very useful. I might have otherwise missed this cultural event! Location-wise, the guesthouse is a 15-20 minute walk to the village of Shirakawa-go; but it is located half way between the village and the shrine where the festival was held. It turns out to be a perfect location!
