hi folks

intending to get the Takayama-Hokuriku Area, but wanna ask if its sufficient to explore Takayama and Kanazawa mainly. Any interesting place to go?

Also which area to stay overnight as the base to explore?

thinking to follow this person itinerary, but open to suggestions

thanks in advance
Depends on your schedule and if tight choose either Takayama or Kanazawa but do make a day trip from either one of these bases to visit Shirakawa-go. The Nouhi bus from Takayama which goes to Shirawaka-go also continues onto Kanazawa. After visiting Shirawakago you can take the bus towards Kanazawa instead of going back to Takayama. So technically you need 3 days & 2 nights to cover these sights if that is the barest minimum you can spare. 1/2 day of sightseeing is sufficient to cover the main sites in Takayama and Kanazawa. The maximum I would stay in both places (Kanazawa & Takayama) would be 2 days each if I opt for an easy pace.
