The hotel itself is nice and affordable (Less than USD$100). It is also walking distance to the Shinjuku Robot Restaurant and there are nice shops, bars and restaurants galore. However, when it gets late, there are hustlers at literally every corner of the streets nearby. I guess it's OK if that's what one is after but I guess for the... More

The houses are really amazing. They people have really adapted to the harsh elements and their culture shows this. My timing was good enough because while I wanted to experience snow I did not want to experience snow storms. There is a website showing real time weather conditions via a camera so this could help in terms of planning when... More

Many reviewers have described the beautiful World Heritage village of Shirakawago. It is truly a wonderful Shagra-La of a location. However be sure to take sufficient Japanese yen with you to pay for all your expenses. This is a cash-only village, and there are no ATMs or money exchange locations anywhere in or around the village.

Fantastic! This is the only word I can describe about Shirakawago. Don't miss this spot if you happen to come to Takayama. Love this place so much and will definitely make another trip again and spend a night during winter.

Despite it's in the middle of Kabukicho 2-chome, amazingly quiet. The best part is superb Japanese breakfast costs only 500 yen and it comes with grilled fish, salad, side dish and desert. The room is spacious for the price.

What a pleasant hotel. But as mentioned, it's in the midst of Kabikicho, which is an interesting place, but it just makes me feel unsafe walking through the streets at night. Hotel is awesome, with good wifi, clean facilities, and awesome toiletries for use. Staff were all amazing and friendly. They didn't speak much english but a lady could speak... More
