How many days and should I base in takayama?

Jump to last reply

I am havinga hard time to think of an itinery for my Japan trip.

I arrive at Tokyo on 8th Oct at 7pm, I am thinking spend 9th-11th (3 days at Takayama) as there is the Takayama for two days, thn one more day fro sightseeing, incase the town is too busy at the festival.
Then how many days should I expect for side trips to shirakawa and Kanazawa? Is it better to base at Takayama and visit other places from there? Or stay at Shirkawa and see takayama from there?

Plaese help. Will need to know if the Takayama will be be a problem to look around Takayama
