Shirakawago, Gifu Prefecture 22.Apr.16
The next stop in the late afternoon after Takayama is this really charming little historical town. We've had an hour or so to wander. Shirakawago is just lovely with the traditional thatched houses and the snow-capped mountains in the background. Definitely memorable.
We were later brought to a hotel in another town where we spent the night for an early start the next morning.
