 Day 1

Nagoya

Capital city of Aichi Prefecture, Nagoya developed as the castle town of the Owari, one of the three branches of the ruling Tokugawa family during the Edo Period. 
One of the main points of this city is with no doubt the legendary Castle、built in the beginning of the Edo Period as the seat of one of the three branches of the ruling Tokugawa family, the Owari branch.

 

Gifu

Gifu is a large, landlocked prefecture in the center of Honshu in Chubu region. This perfecture's most notable and famous attractions are Takayama, a beautiful town in the mountains, and Shirakawa-go, a collection of small villages even deeper in the mountains. The prefectural capital Gifu City is famous for cormorant fishing, a traditional fishing method that uses trained cormorants to catch river fish, has been practiced along Nagaragawa River, Gifu's iconic river, for over 1300 years. 

 Day 2

Natadera

The large temple grounds feature multiple buildings, a pond garden and a characteristic rock face with handcut meditation caves and steps carved into the cliffside. The temple was founded in 717 by a Buddhist monk who visited nearby Mount Hakusan in search of a goddess believed to reside there. After realizing that the goddess was Kannon, the Buddhist goddess of mercy and compassion, the monk carved a woden image of Kannon, which together with Mount Hakusan remains Natadera's main object of worship today.

 

Motorcar Museum of Japan

Established in 1978 by Shoso Maeda, popular enterpreneur, with the aim to display his personal collection of cars, this musem is based on the concept of "preserve the wisdom of pioneers for the future generations". In this museum there are historically iconic Japan's comercial vehicles and ordinary vehicles showing the autheticity of the ordinary life Japan in the last years.  

 Day 3

Chirihama

Ein acht Kilometer langer Strand entlang des Japanischen Meeres, der zugänglich für Privatfahrzeuge ist und eine kurze Fahrt direkt am Wasser ermöglicht. Der Verkehr verläuft in beide Richtungen und das Befahren ist kostenlos.


 

Kenrokuen

Kenrokuen, which is justifiably classified as one ofJapan's "three most beautiful landscape gardens". The spacious grounds used to be the outer garden of Kanazawa Castle and were constructed by the ruling Maeda family over a period of nearly two centuries. Opened to the public in 1871, Kenrokuen features a variety of flowering trees which provide the garden with a differen look for each season.

 Day 4

Mitsukejima

Located in Ishikawa Prefecture, next to Noto Puninsula, it is also known as Gunkanjima, which means “battleship Island” due to its peculiar form. Its silhouette can be seen from Suzu coast, constituting a moving beautiful sightseeing, which made this little island the symbol of noto peninsula.


 

Japanese Alps

A series of mountain ranges named by archaeologist William Gowland,

encompassing Hida Mountains, Kiso Mountains and Akaishi Mountains. Highest

peaks are Mount Hotaka (3,190 m) and Mount Kita (3,193 m).

 Day 5

Shirakawa-go

Das historische Dorf Shirakawa-go ist seit 1995 Weltkulturerbe und einer der beliebtesten architektonischen Stätten in Japan. Es gilt als ein wunderbares Beispiel des Gassho-zukuri-Baustils, dessen Name „Stil der zum Gebet gefalteten Hände“ bedeutet, da die steilen Strohdächer der Bauernhäuser den zum Gebet gefalteten Händen von buddhistischen Mönchen ähneln.

Der architektonische Stil entwickelte sich über viele Generationen hinweg und ist darauf ausgelegt, den großen Schneemassen zu widerstehen, die im Winter in der Region fallen.




 

Takayama

Takayama liegt in der Präfektur Gifu und ist bekannt für einen perfekt erhaltenen historischen Stadtteil aus der Edo-Zeit, in dem noch immer historische Privathäuser, Restaurants und Sake-Brauereien vorhanden und auch noch in Betrieb sind und somit dazu beitragen, eine wunderschöne nostalgische Atmosphäre zu schaffen.

Interessant sind vor allem der Kusakabe Mingeikan (eines der ältesten Gebäude in Takayama) und der Takayama Hachimangu-Schrein.

Day 6  

Gujō Hachiman

Gujō Hachiman is a small, riverside town in Gifu Prefecture, known for its pristine waterways and its distinctive summer dance festival. The town was founded in the 16th century following the construction of Hachiman Castle.Best known for its summer dance festival and its historic waterways, the town has many small museums and galleries, as well as temples and shrines, including Jionzenji Temple with its beautiful Zen garden, which earn Gujo Hachiman its "Little Kyoto" nickname.
