We stayed in this wonderful minshuku (bed and breakfast) in the Unesco Heritage Listed village of Shirakawa-go. It is easy to get to (by bus from Takayama) The women in this guest house were so welcoming and the room large and comfortable.

Shirakawago is the place to rest and enjoy a peaceful and romantic getaway. This ghasso house is clean, beautiful and so cozy. Our room as so nice, with the futons being super confortable. Both the dinner and breakfast we had there were delicious and shared with the other guests in a very friendly atmosphere. The staff doesn't speak anything else... More

Firstly to set expectation. This is an old most likely rebuilt farmhouse and the stay, while traditional, isn't as rustic as some might expect. The rooms are typical tatami rooms, so futon beds (no it's not a negative as another reviewer states). There is no wifi. There is a modern bathing room. The stay was great. The staff don't speak...

Location: It's located almost at the end of the village. There is no house number, and street name. You have to prepare yourself, rough idea where the mishuku is before you reach Shirakawago. You also should try to remember the Japanese name of this minshuku else you gonna miss it. However we didn't have any problem to locate this minshuku.... More

For the price we paid, we did not have high expectations on our first ryokan experience. However, at Kanja we had an amazing experience! For most, staying at a ryokan is 'something different'. We approached it that way and took things in as they came. The staff was very friendly, the food was incredible and the beds were harder than... More

We had a very relaxing two night stay with the family running Kanjiya. Shirakawago was one of our highlights in Japan and although it was heavily geared for tourists, it still felt very remote and authentic. The accommodation itself is not fancy, but basic, clean and friendly. Pros: Living with a family, great homecooked meals from fresh local produce, relaxing,... More

Stayed here one night. Very very nice family attending to us during the stay. It's a simple affair, but the service was impeccable, and the dinner absolutely glorious. Little English is spoken here, but really, a little gesticulation, and phrases are more than sufficient to communicate what one wants.. Wish all these websites will pick them up better though, they... More
