Room bare (Japanese style), traditional kaiseki dinner served on floor and stool tray, Japanese breakfast, magnificent surrounds, great shower and bath, great heater. Room was cold but heater worked a treat. Rooms are divided by sliding doors so every sound... More

Ainokura is a kind of Open Air Museum. The good thing about this place is that it is sufficiently remote not to attract too many tourists. This hostel is japanese style. You'll sleep on a futon and toilets and bathroom are shared with other guests. Everything is very clean. You'll be served a japanese breakfast and dinner of very good... More

Hostess was Super warm and friendly. Food was decent too. Accom was easily located on the Main Street. Facilities (aircon, washing machine.. Etc) met our needs. Btw, if time, you've got to try the soba and tempura meal at the gift shop/restaurant next to Goyomon. Best we've had during our trip :)

My wife and I visited Ainokura in March 2016 during our honeymoon and truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely Gassho-style house. Our room had tatami and excellent traditional futon beds, and the shared bathroom and toilets were nice and clean.

Ainokura is a remote village in the Gokayama region not far from the touristy Shirakawa-go and Gokayama. We came from Kanazawa and had to first take a train to Takaoka, and then a bus to Ainokura. Then from the bus stop, there is a 10mn walk to the village itself. People will know where the Guesthouse is. There is no... More

We had a mixed experience. Upon arrival we were told that the Inn was very busy, and so we were placed in a makeshift room which usually seemed to function as an... More

We stayed 2 nights at Goyomon. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by our first night. When we arrived we were told to put our bags in what looked like a study/storage space. Because of the language barrier, I assumed we were just storing our bags in that room while they were cleaning/preparing our room for us. We ended up... More

Goyomon is a B&B-type setup in the tiny village of Ainokura. It is a Gassho-style house and the woman who operates it is very warm and accommodating. Dinner is served around a fire pit in the main room of the house. There are (I believe) three sleeping rooms around the main room. Shower and bathroom facilities lie on the other... More
