SHIRAKAWA-GO LIGHT-UP & STAY
The Takayama Station Hostel Stay.
1.Spend 2 hours in Shirakawa-go. This is plenty of time to enjoy the small village, with its 114 gassho style houses. First take photos from the famous observation point overlooking the village, then stroll leisurely around the village, and go inside a few of the houses, too. The insides of the houses are very similar, so looking inside a few of them will be enough to experience how people traditionally lived, and continue to live, in this rural area of Japan.
2. Our tour, at 4,400 yen (4,000 yen for children), includes a English-speaking tour conductor and a stop at the observation point, so you can experience Shirakawa-go to the fullest.(We don't go to the observation point during the period from Dec to Mar)
3. Learn more about Shirakawa-go, and what to see, with our friendly and informative English-speaking tour conductor. The conductor is local, knowledgeable, and experienced, and happy to help make your tour to Shirakawa-go a highlight of your time in Japan.
