Star 4


Caught an early bus to Shirakawa-go, a historic village located a little over an hour southeast of Kanazawa. Fell asleep on the way and woke up to a small town covered in more than two feet of snow. The roofs are constructed with thatched bamboo stems that form a steep angle to prevent heavy snow from piling up. We walked around the peaceful village, grabbed a quick bite, headed up to a scenic viewpoint, then got back on another bus headed to Hida-Takayama.
