I have four nights in Takayama/Shirawaka-go/Kanazawa (from my 16 day itinerary - need help in that too in an earlier posting in japan forum, pls help!THanks)
Considerations are efficiency of travel. Has anyone analysed the bus timings and done this route similarly? ie. a few nights in the area? What is the best way?
Also, should I stay in Shirawaka-go (I'm thinking of Ainokura for its reviews of being a quieter, less tourist-filled place), for one night, then Takayama for another, or should I do Takayama for 2 nights and visit Ainokura as a day trip?
