Re: Sanno Matsuri Spring Festival PLEASE HELP!
I'm planning on heading to Takayama as well for the Sanno Matsuri. The event will be held on April 14 with the shrines / floats lighted up at night. It will end on Apr15 on a solemn note. I'm making my way from Tokyo to Takayama on the bus (5.5hrs)for 6,500Yen website: nouhibus.co.jp/english/index... But if you have a JR pass, you might as well take the Shinkansen to nagoya and change to the Wide View Hida train to Takayama (abt less than 5hrs, great views but cost 13,450Yen 1way).
I'm leaving Tokyo on 12Apr as I plan to take a daytrip to Shirakawago on 13Apr. The only problem I have now is getting rooms in Takayama on these dates. Apparently everyone in Takayama is involved in this event so I don't think you can miss the crowd!
