Gassho-Zukuri old farmhouse and Kenrokuen garden one-day tour from Kanazawa


I show cutomers around UNESCO World Heritage site Shirakawago village in the morning, and around old castle town Kanazawa in the afternoon. Shirakawago village was designated as UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. There are about 110 Gassho Zukuri farmhouses and storages. Customers command a bird-eye view of the village from observation deck, and learn the structure of Gassho farmhouse inside.
