#1 of 125 in Hakuba-mura
Resting at the base of Hakuba Happo-one ski area, Shirouma-so is a modern Japanese ryokan (inn) combining both traditional wood and modern Japanese "Wa" architectural styles, resulting in a creative and beautiful design. From the entrance featuring wooden pillars and beams preserved from the building's agricultural beginnings in the Edo period, to rooms with large windows and views of the northern Alps, you can relax, place yourself in the hands of Nature, and refresh yourself in the warmth of this historical ryokan. Shiroumaso is appreciated by many guests as a convenient base for skiing, snowboarding, or the numerous outdoor activities of the summer months, as well as a hub for touring Shinshu, Azumino, and other regions within Nagano.

Have stayed here several times years apart and am always amazed at the dedication and services offered by Toshi-san and those that work here, everything is spotless and in order, Onsen is amazing. Breakfast is Japanese style with a few western touches and is out of this world and it shows just how much they care, I would also recommend eating dinner here at lest once you won’t regret it Thank you for another amazing stay Dave

I can not more highly recommend Shirouma So! The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The hotel was very comfortable and perfectly situated near the bus terminal, Happo One, and restaurants. The onsen was the perfect way to finish a day on the slopes. The food was excellent and there was plenty of variety - while breakfast is set, it is different every day. I would definitely stay here again!

We were a group of 4 guys, stayed for two nights and in two rooms in hiking season in late Aug when the whole area was almost closed. Shirouma-So as a family hotel provided excellent personal service. Dinner was really surprisingly great experience. Had a great opportunity to chat with the owner lady and her son who took very good care of us all the time. The futon beds in Japanese style rooms were prepared for us during the day. The onsen provided nice relaxation. We got very enjoyable memories from Shirouma-So!

This family-owned and run ryoken is a fantastic place to stay in. The staff went above and beyond to help us and make sure we were well covered. The food was also amazing. I'd like to go back to Hakuba during ski season and will try to stay at this place again.

The ryokan is walking distance from the Happo bus terminal while the free shuttle to Adam gondola (HappoOne resort) stops just outside the building next door. Besides having all the great facilities (nice room/in-house onsen/storage for ski equipment etc), it was the owner (whole family) who made our stay perfect with their superb hospitality and friendliness. Chef even cooked us different breakfast on different days. Arigato gozaimasu!
