This is an excellent choice for time-tight travelers interested in seeing highlights of Shirakawa-go in a short space of time. Avoid the stress and confusion of language barriers when booking public transport, by having round-trip bus fares included. Travel with ease to Shirakawa-go with an English-speaking guide to provide commentary and tips about local sights. Enjoy seeing the Gassho-style houses, and photo stops at observation points too. You’ll also have free time to explore Shirakawa-go independently.
We went there towards the end of winter. Part of the waterfalls was still frozen making it really pretty. Beside this, nothing much to see and quite difficult to access by walk due to icy / hardly maintained roads.
