It's a farm stay and yes so the walls are paper thin. We had 4 other housemates who were quite considerate so no rowdy neighbours. The futon mattress setup was comfortable, no issue with it. In the summer the place could be very warm in the day but once the sun set the temperature drop quite quickly. What I really... More

We stayed at Mrs. Shimizu in traditilnal japanese guest house and it was great (might be expensive for some students and young coupples - total for two persons 20 000 JPY/night). Japanese dinner and breakfast was included. Our host was very kind and nice, place is definitely recommended!

This is the second time that I visit the incredible village of Shirakawa-go. Words cannot express the beauty of this timeless place. Shimizu has been my "home" in both occasions and I'm always so happy to come back here. The atmosphere is incredible, the family is extremely kind and the food is exceptionally tasty. I recommend Shimizu to everyone that... More

We visited in late June, and there were no other families in the house that night, so it's very easy for us not having to share the bathrooms with others. But they do have enough bathrooms/toilets for 3 families to share with. The rooms are simple and clean. Meals are good too. The location is away from the main road,... More

We arrived around 3:30 from Kanazawa and there were still crowds of people from tour busses. By 4:30 the crowds were gone and you could walk the streets only seeing one or two people. We took a walk after dinner to listen to the frogs singing in the rice paddies. We left on the 9:30 bus for Takayama just as... More

We had a great o/n stay in Shirakawa-go at Shimizu Inn. The lady owner was very nice and spoke English which was very helpful. Dinner & breakfast were excellent. It was easy to get to and at the end of the village which allowed for an opposite perspective to the lookout and very near the three farmhouses which appear in... More

It was our first family trip to Japan including my parents, sister, uncle and aunt. We really loved the homely warmth which Shimizu provided. The host and hostess were were helpful and kind. We were provided full-onboard meal package when we booked via Shirakawa-go Tourist association. We were given 2 adjacent rooms for 7 of us. The food for dinner... More
