I think this tour is great for those who don't want to do their own planning with busses and things (me!). I find that the time allotted wasn't too bad, although if you want to experience everything, it would be a bit difficult.

Fourth time I have done this tour and it never disappoints. The guides are all excellent, seats are reserved so no scramble for the best. Food never changes but it is a pleasant selection of fare. This tour is a “must” if you are in the area, as are others.

When we visited the places, it was raining. This is something that cannot be helped. We still managed to visit the places on time. The tour guide is helpful, speaks good English and ensures that our tour itinerary goes well.
This bus tour was great, one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Would definitely recommend visiting these villages, the gassho style houses are very interesting to see.

We enjoyed the tour very much. We able to spend more time at Shirakawago to choose a later returning time bus.The traditional style Japanese lunch, delicious!

Hi!I really satisfied about this tour. Me & my friend enjoy the trip and feel so comfortable. Ainokura was a blessed, because not too busy and crowded. But, had a change to see Shirakawago from observational deck was the best also. I hear that not all people lucky to be there. So happy. It will be perfect if you add 45-60 minutes in Shirakawago. The space is big and need time to walk back. Over all, that was PERFECT!
My third trip on this tour and have booked again for 2019. A must for anyone staying in Hilda Takayama
