1. Kansai is much closer than Narita

3. Access Shirakawago on the the way to Takayama from Kanazawa or reverse. As most only need a fdw hours there. Shirakawago is about an hour away from both.

You can also get connection flight to Kanazawa.

How long to stay depends on you interests. I would put in 2 says on Noto Peninsula (but best by car), and at least a night in Okuhida (eg Hirayu onsen).

Enjoy your trip to Japan!

I think what I would see as ideal would be to come in via Narita and take the shinkansen from Tokyo to Kanazawa, then bus to Shirakawa-go, bus to Takayama then train to Nagoya and on to Kansai (I would have a couple of other stops along the way). That would be a nice trip if you didnt mind splurging on the shinkansen which I always see as a bit of a treat.

You could come in via Kansai and then take the Thunderbird to Kanazawa but the trip isnt amazing or anything. It would be cheaper, and maybe a half hour shorter than coming in through Narita.

You might consider Nagoya in and Kansai out (or vice versa).

Takayama Hokuriku Area Tourist Pass is a good deal.

You can usually catch a connecting flight to (KMQ) Komatsu for cheaper than the train ride from KIX or NRT. Should save quite bit of time and hassle, too.
