Very tip top Japanese hospitality. The lodging is more than 100 years old but it has stood the test of time. It's very well maintained. The family runs the business for four generations and remains to be very passionate about hosting guests. They offer a...More

We are glad we have picked this warm & comfortable “family-run” hotel from where you will experience high quality of service & food, thoughtfulness, smiles, kindness & great hospitality! The room "Hakusan" we picked is the only one with private bathroom out of the four...More

I stayed at Shiroyamakan for 1 night in early April. I wanted to stay within walking distance to Shirakawago, and a room with good view, but there aren’t many good accommodation there. I read the reviews about all accommodations around Shirakawago and decided to compromise...More

Well it appears as if not all ryokans are the same. And Shiroyamakan shines above many of the ryokans we stayed in. It’s a family owned and run place, and the entire family, mother and father, one brother and three sisters plus some young kids...More

Shiroyamakan is conveniently located right opposite the Shirakawa-go bus centre, at the entrance to the gassho hut village. My family stayed here over the Christmas period and absolutely loved this place! The family that run this historic hotel are such lovely people and very thoughtful...More

●Shiroyamakan which was built 100 years ago is tasteful historic building. Shiroyamakan is one of the important historic building in Shirakawa-go. We had fixed and extended but it hadn’t lost the nostalgic More atmosphere. Please forget your busy life here, and enjoy your easy time. I'm afraid we accept bookings 4 parties only. ●We accept the bookings only 4 parties on weekdays because we hope to treat you and communicate with you a lot. We’ll always do our best for your satisfaction. ●Shiroyamakan doesn’t equip a bath except for 1 room Hakusan. Please take a bath at "Shirakawa-go no Yu” which is close to our accommodation. We’ll give 1 ticket to our guests each. “Shirakawa-go no Yu” is the only natural hot spring of the world heritage Shirakawa-go. It takes 5 minutes from our accommodation. But it’s possible to bring you to there by car if you need. Less
