Mao is a local young lady who spent a year in the US. Her English is excellent. She has a delightful personality and a pleasant demeanor. We greatly enjoyed seeing and exploring Takayama with her. Even better was getting to know this charming local lady. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your review! I really enjoyed with you! I hope your dinner was great.Thank you for talking your culture it was good study for me. Have a safe trip and see you again!
I really enjoyed my tour with Mao. She had a lot of insider information that you can only get from a local. She was flexible and helpful. I learned a lot more about what living in japan is like. She had great local food recommendations as well!
Thank you for your review! I hope your stay will goes well. See you again probably Takayama or Kanazawa!
Mao was very helpful before we arrived there. We almost stayed at a hotel that was one hour away and didn't realize the bus didn't work at night. Fortunately, Mao told us about this so we could change our plans. Mao answered questions before our visit and made suggestions. Unfortunately, the Takayama Spring Festival activities were not as good as expected because of the rain. Mao was good at taking us to different stores that we were interested in and telling us which sake to buy! She also recommended restaurants. Mao has a nice personality and it was helpful that she grew up in the Takayama area. It would have been better if we had gone to more artisans showing their native crafting.
Thank you for your review! I'm sorry for rain but I enjoyed a tour with you. and thank you for many souvenirs for me! Please come again to see the festival if you have chance! See you next time!
