    Super cold, so remember to wear enough clothes. Even with 2 pairs of socks, I was still cold. The illumination was amazing. We were very thankful for the bus services because the place was really crowded when we were there and I think the only way out would've been to cab. Which was almost impossible. If you're visiting Shirakawa-go, I strongly recommend you book the transporation in advance.

What To Expect

Organized every year, the Shirakawa Light Up is an illumination event that attracts photographers and visitors from all around the world to catch the magical moments of traditional Japanese roofs lit up in the snow. Due to its extreme popularity, transporation to the event site can be challenging. Book with Klook and start off your tour with a shuttle bus pick up at Nagoya Station. You will be offered some onigiri (rice ball) and green tea on the bus to help replenish your energy for your first stop, which will be Takayama Historic District, an old town known for its beautifully preserved streets and houses dating from the Edo period. Next, you will hop back onto the bus and be driven to Shirakawa Village where you will enjoy a dinner of Hida beef, a premium quality beef that melts right in your mouth. After your meal and as the sun has set, the light up event will begin. Houses will illuminate in a soft yellow glow and you will have time to walk around the village and take tons of pictures to capture this spectecular moment. At the end of your trip, you will be taken back to Nagoya Station where the tour will be dismissed.

    Wife wanted to go for the longest time and I had to do a lot of research to make this happen. The buses and tours I found were mostly booked out and I was almost sure we would have to rent a car but luckily I found Klook and the shuttle bus transportation was a godsent. Highly recommended service!

    The scene is so beautiful and beautiful, and the locals are very friendly. The hands of the garbage will remind you to remember to take away.
