“ Leave it to Mika-san and enjoy the beauty of rural Japan! ”

My family and I were on our first trip to Japan, and we wanted to see the contrast of the city life and rural life. Takayama and Shirakawa-go was on our list and since my 6 year old daughter was with us, I wanted to be sure we knew what we were doing and where we were going. Step in Mika-san, one of the nicest and friendliest persons you will ever meet. We were in touch before my trip since I had many questions, which Mika-san always happily answered. We were staying at a hotel and also moving to ryokan on the day of the tour. Mika-san was kind enough to ensure the ryokan knew of our arrivals and went out of her way to help us settle in easily. We met her at the lobby and her smile that greeted us immediately made us feel so welcomed. During the tour she was so prepared with her homework. She had pictures, videos of ceremonies we missed during other seasons, she even had physical charts showing the timeline of Japan's history, so we understand her explanations well when we visited some sites. If you love food, leave it again to Mika-san to recommend! We had an amazing local meal and for me being a foodie, the Hoba Miso Beef was a standout! All I can say is that when you come to Takayama, leave it to Mika-san, relax and enjoy your day!
