Reply To: Getting to Shirakawa-go in a Wheelchair

OK, the taxi company got back to me and their charge for one hour in their taxi (mini-van) is ¥7,100 or ¥10,100 for a full sized van.
It would take between 1-1.5hrs to get to Shirakawa-go, so 2-3hrs for riding the taxi. But you would also need to pay them while you wait!!
So, very expensive! You can rent an accessible vehicle for 24hrs for about the same as 1hr of the taxi… but, you’ll need someone to drive of course…
Anyway, once I find a driver, I’ll let you know how it is!
