Since the completion of the renovation, we didn’t have a chance to share the interior of Shiro, so here is a sneak peak.

Stepping inside, you will be greeted by a breezy entrance hall.

There are large cross beams, a skylight that brings in warm daylight, and rustic mud walls that remind us of the long history of 115 years.

This is our beautiful patio next to our kitchen.

Let us show you our guest rooms as well.

This is the male dormitory room facing the main street.

Then, we have two private rooms. The one below is 4 tatami room facing the main street. This room’s name is “Kumo”

We have a double-size futon mattress and is suitable for 1-2 persons. The rate is 4500 yen (approx US$42) for one person, and 8000 yen (US$75) for two persons. It is a nice quiet hidden gem. The interior, the framed shoji window, blue wall color, etc were decorated using traditional methods.

 

Our second 6.5 tatami room is facing our patio. This room’s name is “Tsuchi”.

If using the single size futon mattress, this room can host up to 3 persons. Similarly, 4500 yen for 1 person, 9000 yen for 2 persons, and 10500 yen for 3 persons. Opening the shoji window, you will see the cross beams at the entrance hall. It is nice and cozy just like a Japanese traditional tea room.

We will shortly introduce our living room, kitchen and shared lounges.

Our check in time is 14:00~20:30 and check out time is until 11:30.

Just two steps away from the beautiful Kanazawa castle, we will be waiting for your arrival at Shiro Guest House.

Welcome to an Official Blog of Guesthouse Shiro!

Warm Greetings!

This coming summer 2014, we are opening a new guesthouse called ‘Shiro’ (means White in Japanese) at Ootemachi, Kanazawa.

Excitingly, we are currently renovating a pre-war 115-year old Japanese machiya, a Japanese wooden townhouse, which was built in the Meiji period.

This is the front view of Shiro guesthouse before renovation.

Our official website of Shiro is still under construction. In this blog we hope to share a course of the renovation until our grand opening.

Not only about Shiro, we hope to share about the charms of our great city, Kanazawa.

We are very excited to see how Shiro will evolve. Please follow us to witness the transformation with us.
