I visited Ainokura with my 9 years old son and we had a great time! The village is really a special place and it is really worth it to spend at least one nigh there. I was worried it would be too difficult to get there without a car, but the bus service from Johana and Shin Takaoka is super efficient. Goyomon is a beautiful old house, very clean, comfortable and full of magic. The owner is nice and kind, and she can speak a little english. The food is awesome! I really can\'t wait to go back!

Lovely stay at Goyomon

My wife and I had a delightful stay at Goyomon in Ainokura. Like some of the previous reviewers we had originally planned to stay at Shirakawa-go but the minshukus there were full. However also like the previous reviewers it worked out for the better as Ainokura is less busy and commercialised. The host at Goyomon was very helpful, friendly and accommodating in arranging an early breakfast for us in order to catch an early bus. The food was plentiful, varied and very tasty. I would happily recommend minshuku Goyomon.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed our time. We came much earlier than our check in time, but Hiromi was very accommodating and kind and allowed us to store our bags in our room. She also gave us tea and cookies, both days that we stayed. The setting of the village and inn is idyllic and was a welcome respite from the faster-paced Tokyo. We were provided different meals for each night and they were both tasty. The walls are very thin, so you can hear people from the other rooms and the lights from others go through the walls. Otherwise, the rooms were cosy and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The bathroom is shared, but that never was a problem for us as the inn is small and there were never too many other guests.

Wonderful 2017 stay

We had an amazing stay at Goyomon. Ainokura is beautiful, and much less touristic than Shirakawa-go. The opportunity to walk around the town in the morning before any buses arrive was very special. The inn was very comfortable and clean, and the innkeepers were extremely friendly and welcoming. Dinner and breakfast were delicious feasts!

Authentic farm stay experience

Very authentic experience, staying in an old farmhouse in Ainokura. Our host was delightful and the food plentiful. Just have to get used to paper walls adjoining other guest rooms :)

Although Ainokura was proposed as a backup for Shirakawa-go, after what we briefly saw on the bus route home, we have a hunch that Ainokura was /definitely/ a superior village when it comes to feeling absolutely isolated from society and enjoying a breathtaking scenery surrounded by gigantic snowy mountains. Even though japanese breakfasts need some getting used to, the experience, care taken into the meals and variety of different, unique tastes more than make up for it. Our room was very cozy with wifi, flat screen TV, heating and ample room to set down our stuff. The village itself had enough to keep us busy for the whole day, but I don\'t think staying more than one day would have been a good idea. A short visit is just right. Only scary part are the huge, creepy crawly bugs I spotted on the morning we left on. Thankfully they kept hidden until the very last moment =)

A very authentic experience

Ainokura is a very charming little village very easy to find by bus. Goyomon takes advantage of this and offers the visitor a very authentic experience. The person who took care of us was very attentive and really made an effort to communicate in English or with gestures, although a bit of Japanese makes a big difference. The food is excellent, both the dinner and the breakfast. We slept very well on the futon that was on top of the tatami. The yukata provided were very comfortable too. There were some bugs running around but it was nothing major. We would definitely stay here again.

Charming Village and warm hospitality.

I loved everything about our visit to Ainokura even though it was cold and raining when we arrived we fell in love with this charming little village! Our hosts at Goyoman were sweet and made so much effort to make us feel at home. They even provided us with a hot water bottle to warm up our beds! The food is lovely and I only wish we had stayed 2 nights instead of 1.

A beautiful and attractive village filled with snow, isolated villages such as separated from the outside world. Stop in a time machine that throws us into a few years ago. We stayed in Goyomon and welcomed by the host with friendly and very helpful. A warm bed, good food, hospitality made to feel at home. Hope someday will be back and stay longer.

My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Goyomon from the 1st of February 2015 to the 3rd. We first want to stay at Shirakawa-go village but due to peak season and the light-up event that day, there were no available accommodations there. With heavy heart we chose to stay at Ainokura village but we were very glad with our decision afterwards. We immediately fell in love with the place as soon we arrive there. Compared to Shirakawa-go, Ainokura is very quiet and peaceful. At Goyomon, we were received great hospitality from our host, Mrs Hiromi. It was very cold during our visit with heavy snow around the Ainokura village but Mrs Hiromi made sure that we were comfortable and warm inside the house. and we love the Food. Mrs Hiromi was also kind enough to send us to Taira Ski Area on our second day which is about 5 minute drive from the village. Overall, we're really pleased and had an unforgettable memory staying at Goyomon. We will definitely come and stay here again in the future.
