3-day Shirakawa-go Tour(Watch a Video)

3 types of different landscape

I guided 3 people, including a child, Shirakawa-go tour for three days from 19-Dec from 21-Dec. Sirakawa-go showed us three types of completely different landscape.  On the first day we could greatly enjoy a beautiful snow landscape, on the second day clear weather, and on the third day  mountains covered with a lot of fog.

A Beautiful Snow Landscape 

(19-Dec) Because of early morning's snow we could see a beautiful snow landscape from Hagimachi observatory.  Guests enjoyed playing with snow to make a snowman.  And we took a bath in Shirakawa-go Onsen. 5-year-old girl loved it very much.
  We stayed at a private guest house called "Furusato" where we had Hida Beef, river fish, yudofu, and local vegetables.


Snow Forest Exploration

(20-Dec) We visited Toyota Shiralkawa-Go Eco Institute to join walking in the snow forest. The Toyota Institute is 300 meters higher than Shirakawa-go, so we could see a lot of snow. We greatly enjoyed playing with snow. We wore snowshoes to explore snow forest. We learned a lot about the forest from tour conductor and made a snowman again.

A Lot of Fog

(21-Dec) We could see mountains covered with a lot of fog,  Luckily we could see different landscape from the 2-day scene.  We were blessed with weather.  Guests, of course including me, had a very memorable experience.
