Eiheiji temple was founded in 1244 by Dogen Zenji, a famous Buddhist monk. He studied Zen Buddhism in China for several years. He returned to Japan in 1228 to introduce Soto Zen. He established the temple in this remote mountainous place. His teachings have been guiding Zen Buddhist followers ever since. Over 200 monks join Zen training every year. The trainings include meditation, sutra reciting, preparing meals, having meals, cleaning floors and outside gardens.

Very extremely knowledgeable and patient tour guide. Packed the two half day tours as much as he could while accommodating our little 5 year old. Omicho market and Kenroku-en Garden were very interesting at Kanazawa. Shirakawa-go was beautiful in winter - the gassho style farmhouses showed why the architecture was such in heavy snow.
Takeshi is very friendly ,well prepared and very informative. The one day tour in Kanazawa coverd the most of sightseeings without rushing around in a beautiful day. Learning the making of the "gold leaf" , touring Higashi Chaya district,castle, garden and contemporary museum are all memorable, even the lunch at omi-cho market is very enjoyable. The sightseeings in Kanazawa are easyly accessible by the loop bus.
Throughout my travels in Japan I had 3 different guides and Takashi was by far the best! He knew everything about the subject matter as well as had answers for our many questions about geography, demographics, culture etc. Next I am back I will definitely look Takashi up for another great time.

Shirakawago village was designated as UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. There are 60 Gassho-Zukuri farmhouses and about 40 Gassho-style storages. The shape of big slanted roofs resembles in the gesture of bringing arms and hands together in prayer. This gesture is called Gassho in Japanese. We visit observation point, a typical Gassho farmhouse inside, and stroll the village.
