Drive on Hakusan Shirakawa-go White Road

Hello world. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. If you remember we’ve previously traveled to Shirakawago. We happened to visit this place once again but this time from Kanazawa through the mountain road called Hakusan Shirakawa-go White Road.

We drove down to the entrance of Hakusan Shirakawa-go White Road.


1,400 yen for our car (for more info, refer a link at the end of this post). Now our adventure begins!

Great Views

It isn’t white at all in summer, however mountains in green looks so nice.



We were super dehydrated, wanted anything cool so bad. Got off the car and headed to the waterfalls but DAMN it was such a long way to go!

Finally got to the falls. It was amazingly cool and took all heat from my body. I could stay all day soaking my feet (wish I had my swim wear!). Totally cooled down!

On the way back though it was long enough to get the sweat back again!(killer)




Alright. After driving another hour or so we got to Shirakawa-go. Turns out, many people still visit this place in summer!

Shirakawa-mura, Ono-gun, Gifu


The main parking costs 1,000 for a day for a regular car.

Entrance for the houses in the area costs 300 each but it’s up to you.


See the difference? (please refer our trip to Shirakawa-go in winter)



Driving on the other side of the mountain was quite different and we encountered unexpected discoveries. I bet it would be even better in winter (and tougher with snow). Hope we will have another opportunity to visit there again.

See you around!
