Bus schedules to Shirakawago in late December 2019/3/22 12:09
Hi all,

We are planning to visit Takayama and Shirakawago in late December. We are thinking to stay in Kanazawa 3 days, visiting Takayama on 28 December and Shirakawago in 29 December. Our question is whether shops and restaurants at Takayama old town will be opened as we have read comments that shops and restaurants may be closed during holiday season.

Also, is the bus from Kanazawa to Shirakawago going to be affected during the holiday season? We tried to reserve bus online but it is only allowed to reserve up to November 2019. We understand that during the illumination event, the only way to go to the Shiroyama Viewpoint is by reserving a shuttle bus ticket in advance. We are not going during the illumination event, does that mean there is no shuttle bus and we will have to walk up to the Shiroyama Viewpoint?

Thank you all in advance!

There's no worry about the closures of restaurants and shops except for December 31st and three new years day.
Regarding the shuttle bus to Shiroyama Viewpoint, it's available anytime.
