Shirakawago observation deck ticket 2019/10/8 13:16
Hi all,

Can I check how are we able to purchase the observation deck tickets for the illumination? I have noted that many of the bus tours do not include the said ticket as part of the tour package.

Thank you.

It's free.
If you go to the observatory by bus, the bus fee will be 200 yen.

Check the following link for the shuttle bus stop for the observation deck.

The information by oku is not for the illumination event.

During the illumination event, it is very difficult to get tickets for the observation deck. I think your options are to book a parking lot in combination with a ticket for the shuttle bus for the observation deck (they seem to be almost sold out) or visit with some other plan that includes a ticket to the deck (I am not sure whether they are available). More details are here:

You can't purchase a ticket to the observation deck separately. Either you need to book a tour that includes the ticket, or stay overnight in the village (which is decided by a lottery that has already been held).

Tickets for tours started selling two weeks ago, so many have already sold out.
