Looking for something different to make your visit even more enjoyable? This night tour will be the perfect one for you!
Takayama is a really beautiful place but the thing is, there are not many things to do in the late evening. However, there are some interesting areas that are not on a regular guide book where you get to eat exotic local food and enjoy chatting with locals!

What to Expect

You will get to visit local areas that are not on a regular guide book, and eat/drink while chatting with locals!
You will not only understand the culture behind things people enjoy in Takayama, but also get to try Japanese archery.
I will help you communicate with locals and explain food and drinks. The tour is flexible and the places you visit can be arranged.

“ Fun short tour of Takayama ”

This tour of Takayama with Takahiro is a highlight reel. You do get to see the top sights of the city, but if you want something in depth, book a full day tour! We chose not to due to limited time and wanting to visit Shirakawago that afternoon. That being said, we do feel like we still got to see the real Takayama. Takahiro took us to his favorite place for gohei-mochi, a local specialty, and made us feel very welcome and not rushed. Thank you so much for a lovely tour!

“ A rainy day in Takayama ”

Taka was punctual and very polite. He had planned our day well to take in the tourist spots but also quieter places with the lovely walk through the temple area! We thoroughly enjoyed Takayama!

“ A short and rainy side trip to Takayama ”

Our trip to Takayama may have been tainted with bad weather but thanks to our tour guide, Takahiro, who made our short stay somehow worth the while. We were not able to do much because of the heavy rain that day and the necessity to leave Takayama right away because of storm warning, but he patiently tried his best to make us feel comfortable and let us see some important city sights and have us taste great local food.


Thank you for visiting! It was unfortunate that the weather was really bad and we didn't have much time for the tour but it was really nice meeting and talking to you. Please come stay at Takayama again!
