Hi, I will be travel from tokyo to shirakawago for 3 days 2 nights and will be staying in Takayama. During this period, I wish to visit Hirayu Onsen, could you pls suggest the best itinerary for us in these 3 days 2 days? When is the last bus from Hirayu Onsen back to Takayama?

If I take the earliest bus at 0705hrs to Takayama, after drop my luggage at hotel, do you think I have enough time to spend in Hirayu Onsen? Or I should drop off at Hirayu Onsen, any place to store luggage?

Thank you and look forward to your reply!

Hello,
The bus between Takayama and Hirayu takes about 60 minutes. So if possible, the best option in my opinion would be for you to spend a night in Hirayu Onsen. Hirayu Onsen is a very nice place that is best spent without any stress.
If you choose to do so then your itinerary would be:
Tokyo(Shinjuku) ~bus~> Hirayu (1 night stay) ~bus(60min)~> Takayama(stay) ~bus(60min)~> Shirakawago ~bus~> Takayama(stay) ~bus/train~> Tokyo

I also recommend the Three-Star Alps Unlimited Ride pass for travel to and from Takayama, Hirayu Onsen and Shirakawago. It is a pass that includes unlimited travel between these destinations. Info: http://highway-buses.jp/images/home/BusTicket_B.pdf

Otherwise the last bus from Hirayu Onsen to Takayama leaves at 18:30.

I hope this can help, and have a nice trip!
