This is a weekend-only bus tour from Kanazawa Station. This tour will visit Shirakawa-go, a world heritage site. Since the English staff will accompany you, it is a safe tour for foreigners. A guide will give you a walking map on the bus. We will also guide you to highlights and souvenirs in advance. The tour bus will take you to the Shirakawa Gosho Castle Castle Observatory, so you can enjoy an efficient walk. Lunch includes local dishes from the Hida region and Japanese set meals full of mountain food. There is no need to worry about meals, so you can take a leisurely walk. The tour includes a hand-baked rice cracker experience. Bake yourself a traditional Japanese rice snack. Try eating a baked rice cracker.<br><br>

Shirakawago is located at Gifu Perfecture, JAPAN. Is is best known for being the site of Shirakawago, a small village, traditional village showcasing a building style known as Gassho-Zukuri.

The village very peaceful, the scenery really amazing, you will always amaze with God for creating the scenery around the village. Try to eat some ramen. Taste good. You can finish exploring the village in 3hours, including go to observation deck. The village will be more facinating when its snow 😄

I Although it didn't snow this year as much as expected, Shirakawa-go still was able to enchant and mesmerize us. Reaching is a bit of a hassle as you have to take bus from Tokyo, Nagoya or Takayama. Still, found the journey enjoyable.
