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.
