Green Delight : Shirakawa-go, Japan

I surely love spring everywhere, but the prettiness of it in Japan sort of leaves me at a loss for words.
Even more so there in the Japanese Alps, in the tiny village of Shirakawa-go. I couldn’t imagine it otherwise though, what else would go with these thatched cottages except wild orchids, tiny flowers, fuzzy pistils and fragile flower bells?

It is the spring of fairytales!

You can reach Shirakawa-go with the Nohi bus.
Stay in a Minshuku (the Japanese word for bed&breakfast).
