“ One of the best experiences we've had in Japan ”

We had such a fun time with Taka exploring Takayama. He was knowledgeable, attentive, and just a great person to be around. He introduced us to local food and the Takayama Matsuri (even though we weren't there for the actual festival) and showed us so many things there are to love about the city. We definitely want to come back in the future.


Thank you for joining the tour!

“ 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!
