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.

A Lot of Fog

(21-Dec) We could see mountains covered with a lot of fog,  Luckily we could see different landscape from the 2-day scene.  We were blessed with weather.  Guests, of course including me, had a very memorable experience.

“ Full-service guide that kept our large group moving ”

1 month ago Traveler: Todd -   Tour Guide: Hideo

Hideo was a super tour guide! We booked professional tours through the cruise ship at other destinations, and this tour was very comparable to those, at a fraction of the cost. I can highly recommend Hideo, based on this experience. I helped to organize the tour with Hideo for a group from Cruise Critic, that ended up being 25 people. Hideo consolidated all of the costs (travel, entry fees...

A group of six adults had arranged for Hideo to meet us at the ship and take us to the castle and adjoining gardens and then go on the rope way above the town. We found to our disappointment that Hideo had no interest in the group. He rarely volunteered any information, but did have some answers if we persisted with questions. One of our party was using a walkingstick and he showed no inter...

Hideo was a real find. Our group of 6 engaged him to escort and guide us around Osaka, with transportation and sightseeing through Nara and three days of touring in Kyoto. We found him to be very personable and articulate. Hideo was extremely knowledgeable about each of these destinations, as well as how to navigate them and avoid the crowds. He went above and beyond to make what was a first trip ...

As a private group of 6 individuals on a tightly scheduled vacation, we had requested an 8-hour customized itinerary that would allow us to visit the top 4 attractions in Kyoto and allow us to travel from Tokyo via Shinkansen and return the same evening. We had also requested Hideyoshi-san to arrange a private taxi/van for us as we wanted to spend more time at the sites versus navigating public tr...

We booked an afternoon tour with Hideo, but unfortunately I had an accident as our tour was to begin. Hideo went above and beyond what any guide would do, meeting us at the hospital, arranging transport and even returning the next day to help us make it onto our train on time. Words cannot express how indebted to him we are for his help. You won't find a more compassionate human to spend time with...

Hides wasn’t a guide I expected. He was good in planning the tour and memorizing facts but I like talking to people. Hideo wasn’t open to a free conversation or questions.
