“ Takayama love ”

Thanks so much Mika your passion for your beautiful town is very understandable, we could have stayed a week not just 2 nights. We loved spending the day with you, thanks so much for the Japanese lessons the kids have been looking at signs trying to figure out there meaning :)

Mika:

Hi Kristy, Thank you so much for letting me accompany you! I am pleased that you love this town! Yes! When you come back (maybe for festival!?) please please stay longer! You'll discover lots of hidden beauty in the local's life that might have been lost in big cities. Enjoy finding more Japanese letters that we learned while traveling!

“ Leave it to Mika-san and enjoy the beauty of rural Japan! ”

My family and I were on our first trip to Japan, and we wanted to see the contrast of the city life and rural life. Takayama and Shirakawa-go was on our list and since my 6 year old daughter was with us, I wanted to be sure we knew what we were doing and where we were going. Step in Mika-san, one of the nicest and friendliest persons you will ever meet. We were in touch before my trip since I had many questions, which Mika-san always happily answered. We were staying at a hotel and also moving to ryokan on the day of the tour. Mika-san was kind enough to ensure the ryokan knew of our arrivals and went out of her way to help us settle in easily. We met her at the lobby and her smile that greeted us immediately made us feel so welcomed. During the tour she was so prepared with her ho... read more

“ Nice walk through Takayama ”

It was a great experience! Mika picked us up at the hotel and after a short introduction to our tour, we went through the city of Takayama, including some tasty food and ended with a view of a sake brewery (which doesn't offer tours, but Mika booked us in and gave us a tour herself). Thank you from our whole group! We definitely recommend her to everyone looking for a good time in Takayama.

Mika:

Thank you so much for this great comment, Nicole! Thank you very much for choosing me as your guide in Japan. I'm glad that you enjoyed the morning market and sake brewery tour with tasting! I also enjoyed talking with you!! Hopefully see you when you come back to Japan:-)

“ The best kinds of tours are ones with local guides! ”

Mika met me in the lobby of my ryokan and I was immediately taken by her cheerful disposition and great command of English. She took me on a stroll around Takayama and showed me all the local spots and introduced me to her friends we met along the way. Mika is very knowledgeable about the area and brought me to Sanmachi where I managed to get amazing shots of the area without anyone else in it due to our early start. (the best ever!) Mika also obliged my selfish request of taking me to temples and shrines to obtain goshuins, and along the way taught me how to identify shrines from temples. Shortly after we moved on to Shirakawa-go where she brought me to what she personally felt was the best soba restaurant in Shirakawa-go. (I felt so spoiled!) Mika's a wealth of knowledge and she answered... read more
