1. Efficiently visit 2 World Heritage sites, Gokayama and Shirakawago, all in 1 day! Enjoy seeing how these treasured 'gassho-zukuri' structures differ from more common traditional Japanese houses.
2. This plan offers sightseeing that is efficient and trouble-free compared to public transportation. Also, those with lots of luggage have nothing to worry about, as this tour uses a charter bus.
3. The Hokuriku Shinkansen can whisk you from Tokyo to Kanazawa in as little as 150 minutes. Kanazawa is conveniently located for access from both Osaka and Kyoto, and after reaching Kanazawa, you're just 1 step away from Shirakawago and Gokayama!
4. Tours departing on July 1 to Oct. 31 will take a drive along Hakusan Shirakawago White Road, a scenic toll road which passes through Hakusan National Park. Look forward to sightseeing at stop-offs along the way and enjoy the seasonal scenery of this area.
5. Along the way also enjoy a senbei (rice cracker) baking experience, as well as shopping for local souvenirs.

4.8 /5 Customer Review

by Ng Japan   /  14 Sep 2019

Easiest way to effectively access Shirakawa-go and Gokayama’s Ainokura World Heritage Sites without worrying about missing public transportation. Our guide Kuroda-san was great at giving us relevant information about the sites as well as trivia about Kanazawa, including the best omiyage to bring home from the city. Highly recommended!
