From Takayama to the World Heritage, Shirakawago

Shirakawago is the village with beautiful scenery that is reminiscent of olden times. The village contains 114 thatched roofed gassho style houses and was designated as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1995, as the houses are still used in real life. They are called gassho style houses because the steep triangular roof, unique to the heavy snowfall area, resembles "gassho" (hands meeting in prayer). Throughout the year the highly picturesque landscape, as the representative tourist spot of Japan, attracts many tourists from Japan and abroad.
It takes about 50 minutes by bus from Takayama Nohi Bus Center to Shirakawago. Take comfortable and accessible Nohi Bus. There are 16 round-trip bus services a day. (Some services are on a reservation basis) After sightseeing around Shirakawago, you can go to Kanazawa, Toyama or Takaoka (by Kaetsunou Bus) by bus. These bus routes are popular as a sightseeing tour route connecting Takayama and Shirakawago as well as Shirakawago and Hokuriku.
