From Kanazawa: Shirakawa-go, Gokayama and Wood Carving art

This tour will start at Kanazawa Station at 9:00 A.M., where your guide will meet you in front of the Information Center near the Shinkansen Ticket Gates. The tour begins at Kanazawa Station, where you will get on the bus at the bus terminal on the Kanazawa Port side of the station. After boarding the bus, you will ride about an hour on the highway through the beautiful mountains and then plains of the Hokuriku Region. Getting off the bus in the middle of a small town near the mountains, you have arrived in Inami. This area is famous for its woodcarving and there are over 100 professional traditional woodcarvers in the area. The main street is a thoroughfare towards the centerpiece of Inami, Zuisenji Temple. As you go along you can find examples of National Historic Treasures in woodcarving on and above many of the shops. Also, look for the cats because they are hidden everywhere. The town association says there are 32 but many other shops have also made their own cats in interesting locations. Finally, you will arrive at Zuisenji Temple, with its giant walls. As you approach you may feel like you’re about to enter a castle. Originally built in the 1300s, it burned down in 1735. That prompted a rebuilding that brought a famous wood carver from Kyoto. There are many intricate designs that include not only patterns on the gates but also dragons, lions, elephants and many of the other famous animals all over the grounds. After seeing the temple it is time for an early lunch in the town. There are two soba restaurants that your guide will recommend but feel free to walk around and enter some shops and eat wherever you seems good to you! Meeting back up at the parking lot, we will then head towards Gokayama, one of the two areas of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The first stop is Ai-no-kura, one of the best preserved villages in the area. This area, secluded from the hustle and bustle of the larger cities, were vital to the economic prosperity of the entire state. The production of various agricultural products and sake were very important but also was the manufacture of gunpowder and paper. You will get your hands wet making paper using traditional Japanese methods. The next bus ride will take about 40 minutes before arriving at the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is Shirakawa-go. This beautiful village is famous for its picturesque townscape with the gassho farmhouses. We will start from main street where we will do a tour of the historic town and enter into one of the beautiful thatched-roof houses.
