Travelling from Nagoya to Shirakawa-go

Recommended Posts

We are planning to travel from Nagoya to Shirakawa-go in a group of 2 adults and 3 kids on 23-Apr. How can we make our trip using the Japan Rail Pass? We read from somewhere that we can travel by the Limited Express Hida that covered by Japan Rail Pass, is this so? How Long to get there? Thanks

To travel from Nagoya to Shirakawa-go you will need to take a train (Limited Express Hida) to Takayama and a bus from Takayama to Shirakawa-go. It takes about 3 and a half hours.

The regular Japan Rail Pass covers Limited Express Hida (Nagoya-Takayama), but not the bus.

Limited Express Hida information: https://www.nagoyastation.com/the-limited-express-hida-for-gifu-gero-takayama-toyama/

Takayama-Hokuriku Area Tourist Pass covers both Limited Express Hida and the bus to Shirakawa-go: http://touristpass.jp/en/takayama_hokuriku/

There is also a direct bus from Nagoya to Shirakawa-go that may be faster, but it's not covered by any pass: http://www.gifubus.co.jp/highway/shirakawa/
