Awesome tour guide! Took us to Shirakawago and Takaoka. First time for our group to have a tour guide and we enjoyed every minute. Attentive to our religious background, foods, and etc. Our group loved sushi at Takaoka. FYI- If you go to Shirakawago, make sure to have lots of 100 yen coins with you. Some of the places at shirakawago charges entrance fee which ranges from 200-400 yen. The bus which takes you up to the observation point was 200 yen I think. Our group had fun!
Thank you very much for your great compliment! Although Michlin-rated sushi shop was not open, I was happy you had a very good chance to eat tasty sushi in Toyama prefecture. YES, I definitely agree to your idea to make many JPY coins before coming to Hokuriku region, because many restaurants and facilities do not accept credit cards. Anyhow, It was an honor I could meet your group. Best Wishes!
