***At this moment, the Go To Travel campaign is suspended until February 7th, 2021. We take reservations for package trips to Shirakawago & Takayama and other areas that take place after February 8th, 2021.

Do you want to get away from the city for a bit? Why not take advantage of the Go To Travel discounts that give you up to 50% off on your tour packages all around Japan by taking an overnight trip to Takayama and Shirakawago and see the wonderful wintry sight of the traditional rooftops of Shirakawago covered in snow? There has never been a better time to travel in Japan than now! Take the opportunity while the campaign lasts and Japan’s cities and most beautiful tourist spots are still relatively calm.

Please note that this campaign is only available for residents of Japan. For an extensive overview of how the Go To Travel system works, please read this article.

Overnight Shirakawago Packages with Go To Travel

For the best prices, you can book your overnight stay in Takayama through us, including or excluding transportation. Rest assured that we do not charge you extra because of the Go To Travel discounts because we will charge our regular prices minus the discount. Please contact us for booking your:

  • Hotel stay only
  • Hotel stay + shinkansen/train tickets*
  • Enjoy Takayama & Shirakawago Package Deal*

*if you book a package including shinkansen/train tickets, please book at least 4 days ahead of your travel date to ensure you also receive the discount for the shinkansen and train. If you book less than 4 days ahead, it means that the discount can only be applied to your accommodation fees.

Because everyone’s budget is different, we can cater to any budget from traveling as cheaply as possible to luxury hotels and ryokan.

Please note that the Go To Travel discount only applies to a maximum of 7 days of your trip. If you book a trip that lasts for more than 7 days, it is still possible to use the Go To Travel discount for the first 7 days but the rest of your stay will be charged at the regular price. The maximum discount (hotel/transportation/activity discount + vouchers) that you can get is 20.000 yen per day per person.
