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.

  • KA*** 25 Jul 2017
    Arrangement is ok. The car is clean and comfortable. But the buffet is not so good. The translator is not very fluent in English
  • Chan*** 22 Jul 2017
    It's a wonderful trip to have a look to one of the heritages in Japan ! The schedule is fine and time management of the guide is good. Special thanks to the English translater who take good care to foreigners who don't understand Japanese.
  • Ching*** 21 Jul 2017
    We woke up early in the morning, rushing to the bus station with our 4 years old & 8months old son. They said children under 5 is not allow to go Shinagawa by bus. That's put us a shock & is not mention in the rules & regulation, we were forced to cancel our trip & change our plan on the spot. Is a terrible experience, I hope klook will improve their site.
