Hokuriku Camping Car Travelog | 北陸キャンピングカー旅 ①


Sequel to October, our November camping car trip takes us to the Hokuriku region of Japan. Unlike October our travel day welcomes us with fine sunny weather, rather warm for November. We knew that the Hokuriku area, know for  rather unstable weather and as expected our schedule days (November 13th~17th) ahead did not call for great weather.

(The Hokuriku region includes the four prefectures of Ishikawa, Fukui, Niigata and Toyama)





Our pets…have adapted well to the camping car trip. They know the housing, they seem to know what to expect ahead. Looking very comfortable.



Our first destination is ‘Historic Villages of Shirakawa-gō‘ , Gifu prefecture (Japan’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites).









Located in a very mountainous region, cut off from the rest of the world for a long period of time, these villages with their Gassho-style houses subsisted on the cultivation of mulberry trees and the rearing of silkworms. The large houses with their steeply pitched thatched roofs are the only examples of their kind in Japan.

The day we visited Shirakawa-go was damp. Although the sun is always welcoming, the rain and damp made the scenery more lush and enhanced the beauty of the autumn foliage, well seen during this very season of November 13th – 17th.

Please enjoy the photographs of Shirakawa-go. (all shot with iPhone X)
