How to get there

The Nagoya Chubu International Airport is the closest airport, a 3-hour car drive or a 25-minute helicopter ride. The airport services domestic flights from cities in Japan and has a few international flights.

Best time to go

In late March & early April enjoy the cherry blossoms, while late autumn is perfect with fresh & light breezes, with cool temperatures. Winter also is a good time to go as it is dry, temperate and often sunny.
