    Worth it! the buffet, old town and shirakawa on winter. The tour guides are friendly and they were very sincere. The tour in shirakawa is very limited. They should give more time in shirakawa than in takayama. Overall, I recommend this tour.

What To Expect

Begin your winter adventure in Nagoya where, after redeeming your printed voucher for a bus pass, you'll depart from Meitetsu Bus Center for the scenic two hour journey to Takayama. Explore the old towns and rural elements of this historic district by yourselves before rejoining the group for a lunch buffet featuring over 40 different dishes in downtown Takayama. After lunch, you will depart for Shirakawa Village, a quaint Japanese village with traditional houses still standing to this day. You will spend 80 minutes touring around this beautiful site before leaving for Nagoya Station where you will be dropped off. Guide services are only provided in Japanese whilst English speakers will receive information booklets in English. This tour is best recommended for the easy and convenient transport, delicious buffet lunch and outstanding destinations that speak for themselves.

    Excellent trip and tour guides!
  • Wing Ting Vivian 20 Feb 2018
    very friendly staff and speaks fluent English. don't expect too much for the lunch buffet though.
  • Catherine Ivy 20 Feb 2018
    The tour was amazing and fun. Our tour guides and driver were friendly and nice.
  • JOY 20 Feb 2018
    It's a pretty straightforward tour, visiting Takayama and Shirakawago. I only wish there could be more time spent in Shirakawago as 90 minutes is a little tight to leisurely explore such a beautiful place. The staff are all courteous and attentive and always smiling. Lunch included was buffet style and it offered a good selection of dishes.
  • judy lois 19 Feb 2018
    A nice experience no hassle at all. The ataff are very kind and always smilling. Good driving and many bus stop to go to rest room. It will be more delightful if they add even 30 mins. For the stay in Shirakawago but in all im satisfied with my tour. I will recommend this activity 😊
  • WAI YEE 14 Feb 2018
    Time management is quite good and nice tour guide. However, lunch could be better as there are quite few choices of the buffet
  • Carolyn 12 Feb 2018
    The visit to Shirakawa-go is worth it, wish we could have stayed longer so we can explore this beautiful village some more. Our guide, as well as the English guide/staff were very helpful and accommodating. In the confirmation email said this is a tour mainly for japanese groups but there were more foreigners in our group than japanese. The English staff translated every single detail of information for us. Our driver was excellent, he stormed the traffic and the snow so we could go back to Nagoya safely!
  • Haryo 12 Feb 2018
    The tour is great and very nice but you can’t really explore Takayama and Shirakawa-go because of very limited time
  • RECHELLE 11 Feb 2018
    We enjoyed the tour very much. This voucher is easy to use and the instructions are clear. Even the instructions to where we can get our tickets for the tour are written as well.
