Spend a day in the Japanese countryside exploring the beautifully preserved villages of the Gokayama region - famed for their steeped roof farmhouses
Venture deep into the Gokayama region to explore some fascinating countryside villages, known for their iconic steeped-roof gasshozukuri farmhouses. Enjoy the ease of hotel transfers and the help of an English speaking guide as you make your way into some of the region's remotest villages. This isn't your average group tour - the route is designed to aide your Japan sightseeing by taking you to some hard to reach locations, away from large tourist numbers. It's not a package tour - when you arrive at each location, you're given free time to explore by foot on your own. You'll visit the two World Heritage Sites of Suganuma and Ainokura villages, which remain as beautiful examples of local folk culture. Dine on fresh soba noodles and local tofu for lunch overlooking the iconic steeped-roofs of Shirakawago's farmhouses and get clued up on local history with free time at the Gasshozukuri Minkaen Outdoor Museum.

Interesting trip to visit Ainokura and Shirakawago villages. Beautiful and not to missed Unesco World Heritage Villages regardless of different seasons. Tour guide Yuko is knowlegeable, cheerful and kind. She made us feel very welcomed and warmth in the cold winter. Thanks for the tour.
Great package. Friendly tour guide. Since we went during winter season, places were amazing in general. This is highly recommended!
