Nagoya: UNESCO Tour to Shiragawago & Takayama

1. Nagoya: UNESCO Tour to Shiragawago & Takayama

Experience Edo-period Japan in the Takayama and in the UNESCO-listed Shirakawa-go village. You will have your lunch at your own expense in Takayama first, which is filled with interesting sights and is the gate-way to the Japanese Alps. Some of the must-see spots are the Sanmachi Suji District, which consists of three streets in the heart of Takayama Edo town, which lies just to the east of the Miya-gawa River. The streets are lined with traditional houses, shops, restaurants, sake breweries and, cafes. Then, head to the famous Shirakawa-go for the old gassho-zukuri (thached-roof) style houses that are spotted around this mountain village. Surrounded by rice paddies, you can hear the sounds of insects and birds if you listen. Located in a mountainous region that was cut off from the rest of the world for a long period of time, these villages with their Gassho-style houses subsisted on the cultivation of mulberry trees and the rearing of silkworms. The large houses with their steeply pitched thatched roofs are the only examples of their kind in Japan. Despite economic upheavals, the villages of Ogimachi, Ainokura, and Suganuma are outstanding examples of a traditional way of life perfectly adapted to the environment and people's social and economic circumstances.

What people are saying about Nagoya

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 72 reviews

Highly recommended. We landed at Kansai airport and pick up location is right at the entrance with large English signage. Picked up pocket wifi and it was ready to use. The battery lasted almost 12 hours and comes with a charger cable in case. The coverage and speed are excellent. Quite cheap compared to other providers and sim. I was given two days extension free of charge out of courtesy. Very polite helpful personnel at the store

Everything was handled perfectly. They clarified our date of arrival to our Shibuya hotel (I was originally off by one day on the date of our arrival). The SIM card was waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived. Highly recommend. The card works in our iPhones.

Definitely worth it and also absolutely necessary because some don't speak English or often look through maps themselves for where and how they're going

i enjoy using your wifi its ver useful for travellers like me

Simple set up. Good connectivity. We'll worth getting.
