Since a “new way of life” is highly recommended for the purpose of implementing infection prevention, we would like you to  pay special attention to hand washing, disinfection, wearing masks, keeping social distances while avoiding the “Three Cs”. (Closed spaces with poor ventilation. Crowded places with many persons nearby. Close-contact setting such as close-range conversations.)

We wish you will enjoy sightseeing safely and securely in accordance with the guidelines set by the country and each prefecture where you live.


*At each facility in Gokayama, measures are taken in accordance with the policy of preventing infection, such as providing alcohol for hand disinfection, the installation of anti-splash barriers, and layout seats by expanding the interval.

We appreciate for your understanding and cooperation.
