Explore the hamlets of Gokayama and Shirakawago on our Osaka to Shirakawago package tour with access to a private vehicle exclusively for you and your fellow travelers. Our English-speaking driver will collect you from your hotel lobby in Osaka and take you first to the World Heritage site of Gokayama followed by the UNESCO village of Shirakawago.
What to Expect
We will collect you from your Hotel or chosen location in Osaka in the morning (See departure times below)
Our English speaking driver will take you directly to the hamlet of Gokayama, a beautiful Alpine village along the Sho river where you can walk among the Gasho zukuri style(Hands in prayer) thatched roofs. You will spend 90 minutes here exploring the village and houses. Gokayama is more remote than Shirakawago and so receives less than half of visitors. This UNESCO and Michelin rated location is one not to be missed.
Next onto the adjacent valley where the UNESCO village of Shirakawago is nestled. You will spend 2 and half hours here, exploring the town and taking in lunch. Crossing the spectacular pedestrian bridge across the Sho river, your senses will be filled with the sounds and smells of authentic rural life.
This fairy-tale village is bound to inspire you as one of Japan’s most picturesque sites.
Our English-speaking driver will return you to Osaka.
