Free time to explore the World Heritage Site of Shirakawago, a Gassho-zukuri (palm-framed) village where you can enjoy beautiful scenery from season to season, and a popular lunch of mountain delicacies. In the afternoon, enjoy a leisurely stroll in Gokayama's Ainokura Village, one of the most peaceful Gassho-zukuri villages in Japan, where the original Japanese landscape still remains. On the way back, you will have the opportunity to try your hand at hand-baked rice crackers at Sasaraya in Fukumitsu Town, Toyama Prefecture, one of the rice-producing regions of the Hokuriku region.
