Shimizu inn is a gassyo-style (thatched-roof house) guest house located at the east end of Shirakawa village, one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You will enjoy a relaxing time in the slow paced atmosphere detached from busy cities. In spring, you will enjoy a magnificent view of Hakusan (2700m mountain) whose peaks are still covered with snow. In summer, you will enjoy the beautiful chorus of frogs and insects reside in terraced rice fields that stretches out before Shimizu inn. In autumn, trees with their leaves turned to many different colours will warm your heart. In winter, you will enjoy the lively sound of burning charcoal in silence that deep snow creates.

Shimizu inn is a small inn and has only three rooms. At dinner and breakfast, all guests will sit around an irori (hearth) and enjoy home style cuisine prepared with lots of home grown vegetables.
