  • To get a full view of the Shirakawa cottage, this prospect is definitely the place to be. Whether it's a photo or a meditation, it is recommended. Side also has small sell shop and restaurant, advice can first go to the prospect stage again into the village walk.

  • I went to 3/11. Past bus at 11, headed from Kanazawa Station. The bus is packed. From the bus parking area on foot about 20 minutes we prospect village arrived at the Observatory. Overlooking the village, there were lots of tourists. Thaw was going to roofs, roads without snow, is feeling a little regrettable thought, this year was quite a heavy snow more snow there. There is also a shuttle bus, this one was pretty crowded.
