What to Expect

Takayama is situated in a narrow and flat land surrounded by high mountains. Now it has become a hometown of many Japanese people since the access by rail and road has been improved so much. Developed after a Kyoto-style town-planning scheme under the administration of Lord Takayama in 1600s, the town is divided into three areas such as Samurai houses, Buddhist Temples and merchants' quarters.
I would like to take you to Takayama Jinya, Kami-sannomachi avenue, and Yatai Floats Museum.

Takayama Jinya was the Edo Government office complex of Takayama district from 1692 to the Meiji Restoration in 1868. It served as the administration of office and court. Takayama Jinya is the only remaining jinya though there were almost 60 government offices at the end of Edo Period.

Kami-sannomachi avenue is a narrow road lined with wooden houses with low hanging eaves and lattice windows as in the Edo days. You can drop in at handicraft shops, enjoy sake-tasting and Hida beef for lunch.

Takayama is famous for the colorful Takayama Festival in spring and autumn with highly decorated floats being pulled out in the streets. Japanese associate Takayama Festival with Gion Festival held in Kyoto. Yatai Floats Museum exhibits floats and palanquines all year around.

From Kyoto, it takes nearly 3 hours, so I would like to give you the Takayama guide for 6 hours from 11:00 A.M. to 5 oclock P.M. I would recommend you stay at Takayama after the tour and next day you join my tour guide of Shirakawa-go, a World Heritage site "https://triplelights.com/japan/tour/gifu-by-hideo-259".

“ Very unconcerned ”

When we first me Hideo the first thing he did was ask for $64 for transport from his house .. I said no and he said ok Did not like that thought it was rude Wherever we want I felt he did not know where we were going He never gave info unless asked and several times did not know answer and never looked up in google as several other guides did I felt he was rude by constantly walking ahead of us and not seeming to care His English was not very good On a level of 1-10 I would give him a 2 I would not recommend him to anyone Trip to Nikko was great in spite of him I just can’t imagine how much better it could of been if we had a good guide like several of our other guides at triplelights

“ Well prepared , knowledgable, and charming guide! ”

We were fortunate to have Hideo show us around the key sights of Kyoto. He organised the day very well to meet our requests , took us to a great lunch venue, and provided some great insights into everything we saw. Hideo has a pleasant and kindly manner and we appreciated his well structured tour. He also provided excellent tips for self touring on other days. Well done to Hideo!

“ 2 wonderful days ”

We really enjoyed our time with Hideo. He was very knowledgeable, took us to great places and got us back to our ship with time to spare. He took us to excellent restaurants so that we could try delicious local foods. I would definitely recommend him.
