Do you think I can get the earlier bus ride to Takayama and Shirakawago in this Itinerary? Or should I reserve online for the bus trip (more expensive)?
Is 4hrs in Shirakawago is too much? Main objective are Gassho houses, Viewpoint and Snow
Any idea regarding the temperature during time? I am coming from south east asia country

For Feb 18, you are missing the crown jewel of the region - Meiji Mura. Inuyama Castle is one of the few surviving originals, but not that impressive. Meiji Mura though is really the finest open air museum in Japan and you should definitely add it - skip Inuyama Castle if you have to.
For Feb 19, one of the best places in Takayama is the HIda-Takayama Folk Museum - very much like Shirakawago though nobody lives in the buildings and you can leisurely explore them all. As for Shirakawago on Feb 20, it only takes a couple of hours to see it, unless you want to add the other villages like Gokayama.

Thank you Ken for the Inputs. I may consider Meiji Mura.
Is it possible to see all of Meiji Mura building without buying the unlimited ride?
