3 types of different landscape

I guided 3 people, including a child, Shirakawa-go tour for three days from 19-Dec from 21-Dec. Sirakawa-go showed us three types of completely different landscape.  On the first day we could greatly enjoy a beautiful snow landscape, on the second day clear weather, and on the third day  mountains covered with a lot of fog.

A Beautiful Snow Landscape 

(19-Dec) Because of early morning's snow we could see a beautiful snow landscape from Hagimachi observatory.  Guests enjoyed playing with snow to make a snowman.  And we took a bath in Shirakawa-go Onsen. 5-year-old girl loved it very much.
  We stayed at a private guest house called "Furusato" where we had Hida Beef, river fish, yudofu, and local vegetables.

Snow Forest Exploration

(20-Dec) We visited Toyota Shiralkawa-Go Eco Institute to join walking in the snow forest. The Toyota Institute is 300 meters higher than Shirakawa-go, so we could see a lot of snow. We greatly enjoyed playing with snow. We wore snowshoes to explore snow forest. We learned a lot about the forest from tour conductor and made a snowman again.

Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.

I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.

When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !

These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you !! read more
