Shirakawa-Go 1 Day Tour (8 hours)

A deep mountain village, Shirakawago is a Japanese tourist attraction that has also been registered as a World Heritage Site. It is much easier to visit by renting one of our charter vehicles or charter buses as the journey includes many mountain roads. A must see in Shirakawago are the Gassho-style houses, build using a Japanese architectural method characterized by steeply slanting roof. You will be overwhelmed by the beautiful scenery, reminiscent of a painting. Many tourists also visit this village in winter, as the snow-covered houses and landscape make up a magical atmosphere. It is also a great spot for photography. While at Shirakawago, you can visit the Wada family home where you can see the interior of a Gassho-style house, an observatory that overlook the settlement, or take a dip in an outdoor hot spring facility in between the sightseeing.

For lunch, we recommend Japanese cuisine such as famous soba noodles, local cuisine using irori (Japanese sunken hearth), or Hida beef. In the afternoon, we’ll get up close and personal with Japanese festival culture, when we visit in Art and Festa Forest in Takayama. Hida region’s grand and luxurious “Festival stalls”, decorated with sculpture and karakuri (wind-up) dolls, and the world’s biggest drum are a must see. A cute little karakuri doll will play their drums for you. The most popular souvenir in this area are the cute Sarubobo dolls. You can stay at a Japanese-style Ryokan accommodation with a hot spring to refresh yourself after a long day of sightseeing.
