Reviewed 28 November 2011

We stayed here for one night. Situated in the heart of shirakawago. The room was a good size but there was no sitting area so we had to sit at the table. We had dinner in the main dining room and watched japanese tv which we didn't understand but you get hooked with all the graphics and the people. The managers daughter showed us in on the sunday and could speak a bit of english, but she was not there for breakfast. The manager could not speak much english but that was fine. The toilets were clean the room clean and the bed very comfy with 2 futons and 2 duvets. In the moring we understood why there were 2 duvets as when i opened the sliding door (straight outside) it was snowing and very cold. This was 21st November and it had been raining all the previous day. Shirakawago is lovely but you have to pay for most of the houses and the open air folk museum. There is not a great deal to do here and i understand why its a day trip. Lovely ryokan though and i would definetly suggest a visit for a rural insight. Just to note that my husband thought that this would be a farmers house. It is a japanese b and b with b and b facilities.

Manager doesn't speak the best english, but is friendly. Obviously a bit pricey, but worth it for a night in atmospheric Shirakawa-go. Dinner and breakfast were pretty amazing, the room not so much.

Our two nights at Yokichi Gassho were a great and enjoyable experience. Gassho are old farmhouses, not sophisticated, modern hotels. The hostess was friendly and helpful, and we had little trouble communicating even though our Japanese was as limited as her English. Large, comfortable, simple rooms. The shared toilet and bathing facilities were immaculate and up-to-date--choice of multifeatured (bidet, airdry, etc), modern toilets or traditional-style squat toilets. Had a great time with other guests (mostly Japanese) at dinner--shared many bottles of beer and stories about travel in general and Japanese culture in particular. We would return in a heartbeat. No restaurant, but price included excellent Japanese breakfast and dinner.

The owner was very nice. There were dinner and breakfast, and I get to enjoy coffee after breakfast. There was so much food for breakfast, and after each meals I get to have a conversation with the other guests that were staying there.

I visited the place in the middle of winter and I was kind of afraid of the cold especially when I sleep, but they provided a gas heater and that made the room comfortable enough for me. There was a feet heater too under the futon.

I heard from the owner that the lodgings there are usually fully booked during weekend so it's safer to book early :)
