Youkoso! Welcome!
Two languages and two cultures blend in this Japanese-American guest house, nestled in 21 forested acres high on a bluff in the scenic Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. Already a favorite among New England travelers, Berkshire Shirakaba never ceases to please newcomers, by the peace and serenity surrounding our mini resort. Designed by a Japanese architect, Yoshihiko Sato, it was built in 2000 as a private home and named after its stately white birch trees Shirakaba. Many guests feel their stay at Shirakaba reminds them of Japanese ryokan. The house utilizes geothermal heating/air conditioning and solar energy, winning TripAdvisor’s Platinum Green Award. Sun or snow, our Berkshires year round resort can produce clean, green energy for your comfort and leisure.
