Weekend only! World Heritage Shirakawa-go One-Day Bus Tour

From/to Kanazawa Station / lunch included / accompanied by an English-speaking guide

This is a one-day bus tour to Shirakawago, the closest UNESCO World Heritage Site to Kanazawa, about 1.5 hours by bus from Kanazawa Station. In Shirakawago, after stopping at the observatory by bus, you will have about 1.5 hours of free time to explore the area and have a lunch using plenty of mountain products. In the afternoon, enjoy a hand-baked rice cracker experience at Sasaraya, a popular local rice cracker shop. The bus tour departs from Kanazawa Station at 9:30 a.m., so it is possible to make a day trip from Tokyo, Osaka, or Kyoto by using the Hokuriku Shinkansen or the Thunderbird express. The bus tour ends at 3:40 p.m., so you can enjoy sightseeing and shopping in Kanazawa before returning to Tokyo, Osaka, or Kyoto.
