About

Hello! My name is Akiko from Gifu prefecture. I am a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter.
I like going out with my family, talking with my friends over coffee at a cozy cafe, reading books, baking bread and cake when I have time.

I have lived in Gifu for more than forty years. Gifu prefecture is rich in nature so you can enjoy the rural atmosphere. Gifu city has a beautiful river 'Nagara river' and Mt.Kinka which has Gifu castle on the top. You can go up the mountain on foot or use a ropeway. The view from Gifu castle is so fantastic. At the foot of the moutain, there are many places to visit such as parks, a temple having a big image of Buddha, and a street preserving the historic atmosphere.

Many cafes have unique service called 'morning service' in Gifu along with Aichi
In the morning (until about ten thirty or eleven) when you order a cup of tea or coffee, they serve toast and salad ! Near Gifu park , you can find a nice Japanese style cafe where you enjoy good coffee seeing a Japanese style garden.

Seki city is a small city but so famous for its cutlery. At Japanese sword museum in Seki, you can see authentic Japanese swords! Mino city next to Seki city is well known for its hand made Japanese paper 'Hon minoshi' designated as intangible cultural asset by UNESCO .

I always enjoy guiding my guests. I am looking forward to seeing you!
Please contact me when you have a chance to Gifu prefecture.

Thank you.

“ Gifu Tour in May ”

We are a group of 5 people from Malaysia. Akiko san was our tour guide in Gifu for 2 days ie 18 & 19 May 2019. I have travelled extensively throughout the whole world with the help of many tour guides. Of them all , I found Akiko to be the most courteous and polite! She worked very hard for us and always answered my queries promptly and effectively. Not only she planned the entire itinerary for us , she also advised us on the most cost effective way to travel to our destination before and after her guided tour. Akiko san lived in Gifu for more than 40years and she knows the area very well. She also speaks good English. I would highly recommend her for anyone who needs a tour guide in Gifu.

Akiko:

I reallly thank you for your feedback filled with kind and positive words, Gin san. I am so honored to have the wonderful , friendly and kind guests like you in Gifu Prefecture. I am very happy that you enjoyed Gujo Hachiman , Cormorant fishing and Shirakawago. We were blessed with sunny days. I had a great time with you all! I hope you will come back to Gifu to spend relaxing time in beautiful nature in the near future. Thank you again for everything.
