Mao is a local young lady who spent a year in the US. Her English is excellent. She has a delightful personality and a pleasant demeanor. We greatly enjoyed seeing and exploring Takayama with her. Even better was getting to know this charming local lady. Highly recommended! view more
I really enjoyed my tour with Mao. She had a lot of insider information that you can only get from a local. She was flexible and helpful. I learned a lot more about what living in japan is like. She had great local food recommendations as well! view more
Mao was very helpful before we arrived there. We almost stayed at a hotel that was one hour away and didn't realize the bus didn't work at night. Fortunately, Mao told us about this so we could change our plans. Mao answered questions before our visit and made suggestions. Unfortunately, the Takayama Spring Festival activities were not as good as expected because of the rain. Mao was good at taking us to different stores that we were interested in and telling us which sake to buy! She also... view more
My 24 year old son and I spent a wonderful day with Bonnie in Takayama and Shirakawago! Bonnie is super-friendly, knowledgeable, organized, and fluent in both English and Chinese. She was flexible and went above and beyond to help us with things like making dinner reservations in the next town we were going to. I can’t recommend Bonnie highly enough- I wish she were our guide throughout our trip!! view more
Wish we had more days with Yuriko! She is a very nice lady, extremely polite and very good in taking us around Takayama and Shirakawa Village. She is very knowledgeable and even before the tour began she was suggesting all these places for us to visit and she accommodated to our wishes. She talked non-stop (in a good way) because she has a lot to say about her city and we had a lot of fun with her. A lot of chatting and laughter while we were going from Point A to Point B. She knows everything t... view more
It was a great experience! Mika picked us up at the hotel and after a short introduction to our tour, we went through the city of Takayama, including some tasty food and ended with a view of a sake brewery (which doesn't offer tours, but Mika booked us in and gave us a tour herself). Thank you from our whole group! We definitely recommend her to everyone looking for a good time in Takayama. view more
We had a wonderful time with Fujio. Travelled with us to Takayama. Great insight into traditional Japan and local architecture and history. He was great with our children. view more

This tour of Takayama with Takahiro is a highlight reel. You do get to see the top sights of the city, but if you want something in depth, book a full day tour! We chose not to due to limited time and wanting to visit Shirakawago that afternoon. That being said, we do feel like we still got to see the real Takayama. Takahiro took us to his favorite place for gohei-mochi, a local specialty, and made us feel very welcome and not rushed. Thank you so much for a lovely tour! view more
Hiro was a perfect guide for us. He explained in very good english what we needed to know, and what we wanted to know. He kept a good pace, and was patient when we took pictures. Hiro has a very good sense of humor, and is very knowledgable. He proved to be of great added value in finding our way quickly in beautiful Takayama. After the tour we took a bus to another site for visiting, and he stayed with us to make sure we got on the right bus. We highly recommend the services of Hiroyuki... view more
Mika met me in the lobby of my ryokan and I was immediately taken by her cheerful disposition and great command of English. She took me on a stroll around Takayama and showed me all the local spots and introduced me to her friends we met along the way. Mika is very knowledgeable about the area and brought me to Sanmachi where I managed to get amazing shots of the area without anyone else in it due to our early start. (the best ever!) Mika also obliged my selfish request of taking me to temples a... view more
