These houses are still used by families for their daily lives. The tour starts from Kanazawa ,and visits Suganuma village and Shirakawago village. We disband the tour at Kanazawa in the afternoon.

“ Kanazawa 10 hr Tour ”

Takashi was a very good & thoughtful guide. He provided a brochure that was waiting for us at our hotel when we checked in confirming all details. Our tour was amazing, wonderful scenery on bus to Shirakawa-go an amazing world heritage site. Then back to Kanazawa, visited Gardens, Castle & original Samuri area. So much culture & history. Takashi provided much information. Based on our experience we would thoroughly recommend Takashi's services & tour.

Takashi:

Dear Peter, Thank you very much for 5-star rating and wonderful comment to my guide service. It was a nice day. A cloudy and moderate temperature. I am grateful to know that you enjoyed Shirakawago-Kanazawa tour. Best regards, Takashi

“ Recommended guide tour ”

On time, helpfull

Takashi:

Dear Mrs. Thank you for a high evaluation to my guide service. We started the tour behind schedule because of your unsuccessful booking of train seats. So, I had to cancell seats of a highway bus originally booked. Seats of all highway bus after original one were all booked by other passengers. So, we took alternative route from Shin-Takaoka to Shirakawago and Takayama. We were lucky that we were able to vist both Shirakawago and Takayama as we planned. It was cold, cloudy and sometimes snowy day. Thank you again. Kind regards, Takashi

“ Good day in Shirakawago and Kanazawa ”

We had a very pleasant at day with Takashi San in Shirakawago and Kanazawa. Takashi San is very knowledgeable about the areas and we were able to see a lot that day. There were so much to see and do and since we took a long time at the gold leaf embellishment experience, we ended up running out of time and not able to see the Kanazawa castle. I think squeezing both Shirakawago and Kanazawa into one day is okay if you don’t go for the gold leaf embellishment experience, otherwise splitting them into two days would be more doable and relaxing. Overall it was a very nice day and thank you again to Takashi San for his time and patience.

Takashi:

Dear Rebecca, Thank you very much for high evaluation on my guide service. We visited Shirakawago in the morning, and Kanazawa in the afternoon. It was a snowy day. We were lucky that there were no traffic delay. I am sorry that we didn't have enough time for Kanazawa tour. Thank you very much for your precious advice on the tour itinerary. Best rgards, Takashi
