Kanazawa Departure: Private Tour of Shirakawa-go and Gokayama

Efficiently Explore Two World Heritage Villages

Shirakawa-go and Gokayama are traditional villages located in the mountainous regions of central Honshu and are popular tourist destinations recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Both villages are situated in heavy snowfall areas, and as such, the thatched roofs of the houses are sharply angled to prevent the accumulation of snow. This tour offers a day-trip from Kanazawa in Ishikawa Prefecture, allowing you to visit these two distinct villages in one efficient journey.

Shirakawa-go is an exceptionally famous village, representing some of the best of Japan’s traditional scenery. If you wish to visit only Shirakawa-go, there are various bus tours available. However, tours that visit Gokayama, which is located deeper in the mountains than Shirakawa-go, are comparatively rare, and tours covering both villages in a single day are even scarcer. Starting your tour from Kanazawa, a charming cultural city on the Sea of Japan side, provides a unique travel experience. Combining your journey through the Sea of Japan region with this tour to visit both villages could result in creating some of the best memories of your trip to Japan.
