Interaction with guests
We also need to serve guests other than Air BnB guests as we are Minsyuku. So we are sorry that we cannot attend you all the time.
Also please note that we don't speak English well but will try our best to welcome you.
Our recommended minshuku is located at the center of "Shirakawago" where there are most of Gassho-zukuri houses. Registered by UNESCO as world heritage site in 1995, This are has become famous for their traditional Gassho-zukuri houses, some of which are more than 250 years old. The area is also known for maintaining its tradition and culture from old days such as "Yui" (All people in the village cooperate to do things such as replacing the roof of Gassho-zukuri)
If you take a bus from Kanazawa or Takayama, the below schedule is useful.
Once you get off the bus in the public parking area, you see a bridge which will lead you to Ogi-machi, main attraction. Our facility is on a smaller path next to the main street towards river side. You will find the sign board at the gate of Gassho-zukuri house.
If you drive a car and stay with us, you can park your car in front of our house.
Other things to note
*This is Minsyuku, Japanese style Inn, in Shirakawago, which remains for more than 200 years. As the house is part of the world cultural heritage, it is maintained in a traditional way. Therefore, our facility is not something you expect in city area but rather you would get the real sense of countryside village life.
*We don't have private bathroom. One bathroom is shared by all guests. It is not Onsen. If you want to go to Onsen, we give you a discount ticket for public onsen neareby.
*Please note that our rooms are separated by Japanese paper sliding doors only and so sounds easily resonates.
*During the winter period, the house gets extremely cold so please be prepared for cold nights.
*In winter, it snows up to 2 meters easily so please bring snow boots with. In addition, we recommend sending your luggage to the next destination after Shirakawago as many guests get stuck in the snow and experience horrible walk…

Hi our future guests,
We operate a world cultural heritage Japanese Inn with more than 200-year history. We provide you with quiet and peaceful moments as well as authentic atmosphere of old Japan with local food.
As we would like to serve foreign guests better, we have decided to do Air BnB which allow us to communicate in advance. Actually we cannot speak English much so staff we hire for Air BnB will take care of you until you arrive our facility.
If you have any requirements or questions, please ask in Air BnB so that we can serve you better at our place.
Looking forward to seeing you here.
