Explore the magical village of Gokayama on this exclusive tour to the heart of Japan’s traditional past
Turn back time and discover traditional Japanese life as it would have been 300 years ago. If you’re wanting an escape from the clamor of the city (or a break from modernity in general), the village of Gokayama is a must-visit. The Illumination Tour only takes place a handful of times per year, making it a truly magical and breath-taking event. The idyllic snowscape, punctuated by unique A-shaped homes is nestled amid an impressive mountain landscape so make sure to wrap up warm and wear comfy walking shoes. For the best vantage point and ultimate photo-taking spot, head to the Shiroyama viewpoint. Note that the viewpoint is only accessed via a walking trail that can be closed off during bad weather.
