One day trip to UNESCO World Heritage and Historic old villages with your private guide


You can see Shirakawa-go and Takayama in one day.
In this tour, we need a charterd car and licensed driver because these two towns are far away from Nagoya.

A charterd car and driver fee varies with the number of people and the season. so I will get an estimate from several taxi companies and tell you the best one.

You can see the Japan's original landscape in Shirakawago village, a UNESCO orld Heritage Site.  
Shirakawa-go is famous for its traditional and unique gassho-zukuri (gassho-style) farmhouses,
some of which are more than 250 years old.

Takayama is well known for its beautifully preserved old town where Edo period town houses remain.
This area also has been famous for its sake production. You can enjoy tasting many kinds of sake in Takayama.

There can be a lot of snowfall from December through March. Please dress warmly, waterproofed coats are recommended, as are long boots or warm shoes with grippy soles to to avoid slipping on the snow.
