Hi, I am Mayumi. Please call me May.
I have had a lot of experience as a local certified guide in Takayama and Shirakawago for the past several years.
I teach English and Japanese basketry. I was an assistant art teacher in PA, USA. So, craftwork tours are my strong point. I can give you a basketry lesson as well.
I have traveled to more than 30 countries because I love meeting people and experiencing different cultures. I am cheerful and sociable.

Good English language. Takayama not much to see. We had half a day. We discussed what time to start and informed that the market Area is not of or interest. On the day she told us that we had to wait before the first attraction would open, so we Will spent first half our at the market. But she really adapters the rest of the tour to our whishes.
Hello, Priscilla Thank you for writing a review of the tour. Takayama is located in a remote area but its layout is very compact. Visitors can walk here and there and discover a true life which is not written in a guidebook. Please come back here again in a different season ! I am sure you will see a lot of new things.
