The Experience

On this tour, you need to take a highway bus yourself (our English speeking assistant will help you to get on the bus) and meet your guide at Shirakawago bus terminal. Then our English speaking guide takes you to enjoy and discover the good old culture and traditions in HIDA region.

The Shirakawago and neighboring Gokayama regions line the Shogawa River Valley. It is declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1995 and famous for their traditional gassho zukuri farmhouses, some of them are more than 250 years old.

Gassho zukuri means constructed like hands in prayer, as the farmhouses' steep thatched roofs resemble the hands of Buddhist monks pressed together in prayer.

Takayama is a city in the mountainous Hida region. It retains a traditional touch especially in its beautifully preserved old town.

In spring and autumn, the Takayama Festival is held which is considered one of Japan's best festivals. In winter, you will enjoy the beautiful snow scenery with old town and villege. In summer, you can feel reflesh with lush green trees.

If you want to enjoy more Hida Culture, we recommend you an optional experience below.

Kumihimo activity 2500yen per pax Kumihimo is a Japanese tradtional plaited cord. You can select your favorite colors strings and make your own cord!
