“ Tour takayama lo mejor ”

El tour de takayama y shirakawago estuvo increible altamente recomendado, los 2 lugares magicos de japon , la guia de yoko extraordinaria, nos explico todo y nos ayudo en todo,muy buen servicio y habla muy bien el español y esta siempre al pendiente de que todo sea perfecto .si volviera a realizar este tour recomendaria un tour en nagoya y e ir en la tarde a takayama para dormir en un ryokan ahi para la experiencia y al dia siguiente tour en takayama y luego shirakawago los dos dias con yoko.


Hola Eduardo Ante todo, muchas gracias por compartir tu tiempo conmigo. Ha sido un tour un poco ajetreado(que Takayama y Shirakawa-go en un día) , pero me alegro que estés satisfecho de este recorrido. Ustedes son gente muy amable! En mi prefectura Gifu hay muchos lugares encantadores, y la próxima vez te recomiendo mi tour “Ruta Samurai” , es una ruta de trekking de 8 kms, y quiero que te alojes en un Minshuku (alojamiento tradicional de Japón )para gozar del ambiente rústico de esta región. Espero que les va bien el resto del viaje y nos veamos de nuevo en Japón.
