Stayed here for one night with my husband on a 2 day trip to Shirakawago. The host was very welcoming and eager to recommend restaurants and an onsen in the area. The bathroom was great, looks like a sauna, great way to warm up after a cold day, we were lucky as the only guests staying that night, otherwise you... More

We wanted to try and stay in the very pretty town of Shirakawa in a traditional Gassho. Kanjiya had a lot of good reviews. I feel this will come down to who else is staying in the Gassho with you. The rooms are clean and comfortable, however the walls are paper thin. All noise and light gets though every crack... More

Kanjiya (or Kanja on some other websites) is a traditional styled house nestled on the Northern end of the beautiful Shirakawago village. This keeps the house away from the main tourist strip but yet very accessible to all sights in the village. The house is renovated within the traditional style structure and this allows a perfect blend of modern bathroom/toilet... More

For over 3 weeks we had the holiday of a lifetime in Japan. But our stay at Kanjiya was a disappointing experience. To stay in a traditional farmhouse had given me the expectation of experiencing basic down to earth country Japanese hospitality. This simply did not happen. We were greeted by an elderly lady and shown to our room and... More

We stayed a night at Kanjiya Japanese guest house in Shirakawago on December 21st. No hotels available in Shirakawago as it is preserved town (Unesco's World Heritage). So only Japanese style gust houses available. All guest houses were built as a traditional “gassho-zukuri” building with a thatched roof and we've got to share bathroom and toilet. At Kanjiya, the bathroom... More
