What you can expect

Join the tour from Nagoya Station or Kanayama station and get on the way towards Gujo Hachiman aboard a comfortable air-conditioned bus.
Built in the 16th century following the construction of the Hachiman Castle, the town of Gujo Hachiman is often called ‘little Kyoto’ due to its waterways and Zen gardens creating a very traditional atmosphere of rural Japan.

People from all over the country come here to taste the mineral water that it said to be purer than bottled water.
Food sample shops in Gujo have some incredibly realistic samples on display, we recommend checking them out.
After enjoy a stroll around the town of Gujo Hachiman, return to the bus for the next stop of the tour: Shirakawago.

First, stop at the Koshiyama restaurant in Shirakawago for a Japanese-style teppanyaki set lunch made of the local speciality 'Hidagyuu' beef.

After eating your lunch, head for the famous gassho-zukuri (thached-roof) style houses that are spotted around this mountain village. Surrounded by rice paddies, you can hear the sounds of insects and birds if you listen. Located in a mountainous region that was cut off from the rest of the world for a long period of time, these villages with their Gassho-style houses subsisted on the cultivation of mulberry trees and the rearing of silkworms. The large houses with their steeply pitched thatched roofs are the only examples of their kind in Japan. Despite economic upheavals, the villages of Ogimachi, Ainokura, and Suganuma are outstanding examples of a traditional way of life perfectly adapted to the environment and people's social and economic circumstances.

In the evening, you will be able to get off at either Kanayama Station (18:10) or Nagoya Station (18:30)
