Greetings / ごあいさつ

Toyama Bay and Japanese Alps

KONNICHIWA Globe-Trotters

Hi and Welcome to Shirokuma Inn. Mariko and I (Calen) started our little petite Bed & Breakfast in the spring of 2019.
It was a very good year, we accommodated guests from over 20 different countries, and plus Japanese. We were quite surprised how popular Iwase and Toyama are with travelers. They showed us that Toyama is a great hub destination.
The Sinkansen “Bullet Train” and the JR rail-pass allows Globe-Trotters to use our central location to access all other cities as day trips (even Tokyo), and enjoy the Real Japanese experience right here with excellent seafood, pure waters, fresh air, etc… It truly is a full Sea to Sky experience.
I personally enjoy the open spaces, endless beaches and less crowded areas.

My background of over 25 years in the Service Industry has helped guided us to provide an affordable experience for you. We provide as much information as we can, a clean bed, showers, and warm filling breakfast. Smiles are provided freely daily.

【Important note】
The New Normal (T.N.N.) has arrived, and the Service Industry will never be the same.
We are adapting to new procedures to maintain a safe and secure environment for your peace of mind and ours.
Your co-operation will be necessary as well, since we all share the same planet and toilets.
As you travel across this beautiful country, please keep a journal of where you have visited, stayed, and also, where you are head to next.
These are all important for obvious reasons, for your safety and the safety of others.

We at Shirokuma Inn welcome you with some social distancing and smiles!
