What to Expect

In the Edo period, for the first 107 years Takayama was ruled by the fuedal lord Kanamori. For the latter 177 years the Tokugawa Shogunate directly ruled Takayama. Takayama flourished as a merchant town since the Tokugawa ruling. Old merchant houses remain in Sannomachi district. The latticework windows are painted black Bengara color. The Takayama morning markets are held at two places every day. one is at the open space in front of Takayama Jinya, and the other is along the Miyagawa river side. In this tour, we visit Sannomachi merchant district, Takayama morning market, Takayama Jinya.

“ Outstanding Experience ”

Takashi met us at our cruise port & we took the ship provided bus in to town. We were open to any sites he wanted to show us. We could not have asked for a better tour guide. He was excited to share his home town with us and pleased to answer any questions we had. Takashi has to be in his 70’s but he walks a pace like he is in his 20’s. So be ready for some exercise (lol). I highly recommend Takashi as your guide. You will not be disappointed!

“ Magnificent ”

Incredible Takashi. Our day trip to snow corridor with him was just satisfying, though it was hectic he made our tour well fit in time. Could not think of anyone better doing this trip as Takashi. Would suggest him 100 percent to guide him to snow corridor without a doubt.

“ School Group Kanazawa Tour ”

Takashi san did a wonderful job showing an elementary school group from Australia around Kanazawa for the day. This was a group of 33 people using public transport and he was very calm and informative catering the tour to the age of the children. We would definitely recommend Takashi san for future tours.
