Notice of cancellation of new tour reservation acceptance due to outbreak of new type coronavirus infection

As you know, the effects of new types of pneumonia are spreading not only in China but also in various parts of Japan. In addition, there were reports that people with new-type pneumonia had visited Takayama and Shirakawa-go for sightseeing.Therefore, we are sorry for our circumstances in consideration of the risk of safety and health damage to customers, but we will take measures to stop accepting new tour reservations for the time being from March 1st.

The resumption is scheduled for October 1 at the earliest. Thank you for your understanding.


1.Takayama to Shirakawa-go Bus tour.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 4,500 yen (4,000 yen for children), includes an English-speaking tour conductor and a stop at the observation point, so you can experience Shirakawa-go to the fullest.(Please note we don't go to the observation point during the period from Dec to Mar due to snow)


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.
