Gujo town is located in 1 hour drive from Takayama, and famous for Gujo dance festival, abundant water spring, and Gujo-Hachiman Castle. It is quite small town, but beautifully surrounded by mountains and water stream everywhere in town, with well-preserved traditional buildings and houses.

Hi, I'm Junichi, a Japanese business owner, based in Takayama, Gifu prefecture, JAPAN. My hometown is Ogaki, Gifu Prefecture, and not too far from Takayama. After working in Africa for 10 years for Japanese Government as development aid worker, I moved to this small but lovely town, Takayama in 2015 with my family, and opened Thai restaurant and Guest House.

My wife is Thai and she cooks great Thai food, I believe. We run two properties to rent as guesthouse in Takayama, both a few mins walk from Takayama station.

I am a government-licensed English tour guide(No.EN00086), and sometimes conduct local guided tours nearby Takayama. I drive my own vans for private customized tours. I am preparing some trekking and natural trail tours in near future. The most popular tour is for Shirakawago world heritage village, Shinhotaka Mountain view, Kamikochi Mountain Resort. Guiding can be done in English, French or Thai. read more
