Travel to Gifu end of January 2012

Is there anyone who can give me information on how to get to Ogimachi / Ainokura / Suganuma from Gifu Station?How long will it take and how much does it cost for a return ticket?Or is there a certain pass that I can buy if I started my journey from Osaka?

There is one daily bus from Gifu to Shirakawa-go (needs a transfer in Gujo-Hachiman). It leaves Gifu JR station at 8.42 and arrives in Shirakawa-go at 11.45. Returning bus leaves Shirakawa-go at 15.35 arriving Gifu JR station at 18.27. One-way ticket is 3000 yen.

There are 4 daily buses between Ogimachi and the Gokayama area of Ainokura and Suganuma

For accommodation, there are more choices in Shirakawa-go/Ogimachi. We didn’t stay overnight there but we like Ainokura better as it is less touristy.

If you are going this month or Feb, consider Shirakawa-go which is having its annual winter illumination event on some weekends. The village is beautiful lit up during those evenings. Finding accommodation at this late date may prove difficult though.
