Osaka to Kanazawa, Takayama, Shirakawa-go for 2-3 days?

I'd like to go to Kanazawa, Takayama and Shirakawa-go for 2 or 3 days solo, starting out from Osaka or Kyoto. I'm probably doing this trip sometime between the 4th and 7th of May. Is there a recommended tour package, or a thread with detailed train info? I'm assuming it would involve a train from Osaka -> Kanazawa, then a Nohi bus to Shirakawa-go and Takayama, and then a train back to Kyoto or Osaka?

Also, how many days should I allocate for the trip, if I want to see Kenroku-en, Takayama's old town, and S-go? I'm thinking I should cover Takayama and S-go in one day, spend the night in a hostel there, then spend the next day or two in Kanazawa.

I found a 2-day weekend trip to Takayama and Shirakawa-go for Y11,700 here with a hostel stay - it seems attractive but I'd like to go to Kanazawa too. The 3-day package including Kamikochi also looks interesting. Opinions? http://tour.j-hoppers.com/

Looking forward to any advice from regulars here!
