Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Gokayama, Nanto Toyama Prefecture

Our English speaking driver will take you directly to the hamlet of Gokayama, a beautiful Alpine village along the Sho river where you can walk among the Gasho zukuri style(Hands in prayer) thatched roofs. You will spend 90 minutes here exploring the village and houses. Gokayama is more remote than Shirakawago and so receives less than half of visitors. This UNESCO and Michelin rated location is one not to be missed.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Gassho Style Houses, Ogimachi, Shirakawa-mura, Ono-gun 501-5627 Gifu Prefecture

Next onto the adjacent valley where the UNESCO village of Shirakawa-go is nestled. You will spend 2 and half hours here, exploring the town and taking in lunch. Crossing the spectacular pedestrian bridge across the Sho river, your senses will be filled with the sounds and smells of authentic rural life. This fairy-tale village is bound to inspire you as one of Japans most picturesque sites.

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
