Hi. I plan on spending two nights in takayama on my trip. However, we will be traveling from Hiroshima, so almost an enitre day will be lost on the way there. We will have that night, all of the following day and night, and perhaps some of the day after (we want to get back to Tokyo to sleep but are in no rush).
1. Is this enough time (1.5 days, 2 nights) to spend in takayama?
2. Has anyone visited the Shirahone onsen? I read that it is 1 hour from takayama via bus, and am considering this if we can squeeze it in. That would mean 1 full day in takayama and 1 half day at the onsen.
3. any experiences with spa hotel alpina in takayama?
