We made a reservation at their official website. As there is only Japanese in the website, we tried our very best to place the booking. The hotel sent us a confirmation that the check-in date is 17th and the check-out date is 18th and stated it is for one night. We assumed the booking has been made. When we arrived... More

Pros: Price was good considering we lived in a very nice vintage house with private semi-outdoor onsen bath. Dinner was awesome and actually "too much" food. The self-grilled beef was excellent! Cons: A little bit far from town centre. Room was not super clean in Japanese standard.

We spend two nights in this ryokan and it was a great experience. Reserving the room was already a small challenge but I've added the website of Shikian in the description, if you send a mail in short sentences with date you want to stay you get a reply in english. Because nobody speaks English, you get a reply that... More

As a Japan-loving foreigner, I found Shikian a wonderful experience. Accommodation wise, it was the highlight of my Kyushu tour, though it was quite a challenge to find (don't even try without car-nav system...), especially at night. The building is a 200 years old Shirakawa farmhouse that has been dismantled and rebuilt in its current location a dozen years ago.... More

I love this hot spring hostel as its stationed in the nature. The room has a telescope for you to look at the stars. The food is very traditional japanese which I like a lot. There are two sheepies for you to visit. If you are looking for a relax place to stay in the nature. This one is good... More

I stayed for one night in the Shikian ryokan in February 2014 and had one of the best stays I have ever had in Japan. I couldn't find a fault with this excellent boutique inn. The main lobby area of the hotel is designed to copy that of Shirakawa-go, which also happens to be one of my favourite places to... More
