Yes, you can buy the bus ticket on the spot except those route which require reservation (click the link). Just try to be there early once you decide the time you want to take as some other tourists may also want to visit the same place and you probably end up have to wait for the next bus if it's full. We bought our bus ticket (from Takayama to Shirakawago) 15 mins before departure and we are the 4th in the q
Brilliant, thank you for the help.
Hi, i'm going to Shirakawa-go in January 2015. Is it peak with tourist during the month of January? If I need to purchase the bus tickets in advance, how do I do that? Thanks.
Bus reservation can be made by calling the phone number listed at the bottom of the page posted by Iva in #1.
January should be fine to visit Shirakawa-go. Just make sure you dress warm.
