Hi there,

You can find train routes and schedules using, we also have a guide to learn you how to plan with Hyperdia.

I am suggesting this as the best schedule depends on what hour you will be traveling.

Some general tips, travel to Shirakawa-go is by bus from Kanazawa. So look for train routes to Kanazawa and use the bus from there.

Happy travels,
