Gifu Tour Guide - Akiko W.

Akiko W.

5.00 / 5
(8 reviews)
Japan

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 passed the national tour guide test in 2017 and have worked as a guide since then. I have guided in Gifu city, Seki city, Takayama city, Shirakawago , Mino city and Nagoya city. 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 mountain , there are many places to visit such as parks, a temple having a big image of Buddha, and a street preserving the historic atmosphere. At Nagara River, you can enjoy seeing a traditional way of fishing ‘cormorant fishing’ which is thought to have started 1300 years ago. 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 and 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 . Until recently it was not easy to guide guests because of COVID-19 pandemic; however the situation is getting better. Some strict rules about COVID-19 have been lifted. Please visit Gifu. I am looking forward to seeing you. Please feel free to ask me when you need information about Gifu. Thank you for reading my introduction.

Hello, I’m Kazuhiko. Please call me “Kazu”. I'm a national-licensed tour guide. I have a wife and 4 children. I was born in Osaka city near Kyoto, although I have lived in many places across Japan. I used to work for multinational electric company and I traveled to many countries (U.S., Thailand, Hong Kong etc.) on business. I have enjoyed guiding many foreign tourists in Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Mt. Fuji etc. for many years. During your tour, you can discover a rich Japanese history spanning about 2,000 years, learn about and experience profound Japanese arts (tea ceremony, flower arrangement etc.), feel the spiritual atmosphere of Buddhist temples or Shinto shrines, see a breathtakingly beautiful scenery of Mt. Fuji, bamboo forest, Japanese gardens etc.. Moreover, you can taste Japanese cuisine that each season has to offer (Sushi, Tempura, Soba or ramen noodle etc.). You can get close to nature and feed wild deer or monkeys or even a build snowman in winter. I’m sure that I can provide a splendid tour of Japan that will be a lasting memory for you to treasure. Experience the mysteries of Japan with 5 senses !! Your memorable tour awaits you.

Gifu Tour Guide - Sumiyo T.

Sumiyo T.

Japan

Bonjour Mesdames et Messieurs, Je m’appelle Sumiyo et suis guide-interprète diplômée. C’est avec joie que je vous accueille dans ma ville natale de NAKATSUGAWA située à l’extrémité des Alpes centrales du Japon dans la préfecture de Gifu où je suis revenue après avoir enseigné à l’Université de Kagoshima. Or j’ai souvent éprouvé ici le regret de voir que les touristes se contentaient de suivre uniquement les informations de notoriété publique. Afin de rendre le chaleureux accueil que j’avais reçu en France lors de mes études de philosophie durant environ six ans, ainsi que dans d’autres pays que j’ai visités, je me suis sentie appelée à modifier cette situation. Avant d’aller à MAGOME, je vous conseille de descendre du bus un peu avant à la 44 e ville étape : à OCHIAI pour faire des expériences palpitantes et inoubliables. Ensuite selon votre choix, je vous accompagnerai à MAGOME et TSUMAGO, afin de découvrir leurs sites historiques et littéraires. Je serai heureuse de pouvoir partager et approfondir avec vous vos impressions et vos expériences. C’est avec impatience que j’attends votre venue ! A bientôt !

Aichi Tour Guide - Serge R.

Serge R.

Japan

Hi lovely travelers, I'm Serge, originally from the Netherlands, and Japan has been my home for over three decades now. What brought me here initially was love, and that love has kept me rooted in this beautiful country ever since. Along the way, I discovered another love: Japan itself. Following my stint as a radio jockey and TV presenter, where I co-hosted a dedicated program for the Nagoya Grampus soccer team, I transitioned to a behind-the-scenes role as a media fixer for international media outlets. Though my job as media fixer, I've been traveling and working throughout all of Japan, exploring unique places and meeting lots of very interesting people. I would love to share and make you, my dear traveler, experience these places as well. Visiting and getting a tour at Japan's oldest traditional vinegar maker, or experience and taste at a traditional "katsuo bushi" bonito flake maker, or do you prefer to visit some old local shrines or temples. with no-one around you, except for the crickets and trees. Maybe you just want a friend to bring you to your desired locations and interpret and be at your beck and call 24 hours (like I do for the media). If you're looking for flexibility (time, places. transport), you won't find a better match than me. My work as a fixer taught me a valuable lesson: the key to traveling together successfully, lies in a blend of humor, professionalism, and adaptability.

Takayama Full-day Private Tour (6 hours)

Gifu
6 hours

Yoko was a wonderful guide for us in Takayama!

We spent a very nice 6 hours with Yoko in Takayama. She was very knowledgeable about the city and region, the history, and special events that take place there. We don't speak Japanese, so it was very nice to have someone fluent in English as our guide. Yoko is very kind, easy to talk to, and she was great with our two kids, aged 7 and 10. Despite having almost constant rain during our tour, Yoko found many interesting things for us to see and do. She also knew some excellent places for local foods and treats, and we all had an amazing lunch together. I really feel like Yoko would be able to cater a tour experience to your exact tastes and wishes. I highly recommend Yoko to be your tour guide!

Paul B.

I appreciate your kind words. Spending six hours with the charming and lively family made me happy too. I’m glad that you could all enjoy Japanese cuisine and culture. Best wishes.

Had a amazing time with Yoko, She knows a lot about takayama

we have spend 2 days with Yoko in takayama aera. She knows those places so good . we had a really good time with her.

Jianan Z.

I am glad that I could help you enjoy your time in Takayama and Shirakawa-go. It was energizing for me to hear about your experiences traveling around the world. Thank you. Have a great remainder of your stay in Japan. Yoko

Visit to Shirakawa-go

We had a wonderful day with Tetsui who guided us through Shirakawa-go, the site of traditional gassho-zukuri houses. Tetsui was a terrific guide, providing a wealth of information on the traditional houses, but also any number of other topics related to Japanese culture along the way. He made helpful suggestions and adjustments to respond to our interests. Tetsui also handled the logistics extremely well, taking away any worry about our day. He even made bus reservations for us in advance to help us with a somewhat complicated day for us, as we were not familiar with the reservation process. We traveled with him from Takayama to Shirakawa, then we continued on to Kanazawa while he returned to Takayama. I thoroughly enjoyed his company and highly recommend Tetsui as a guide for a tour in Japan!

Lois F.

Thank you so much for your high praise. I am very happy to hear that you are satisfied with my job. I hope next opportunity could bring you back to Japan and give me a chance to help you traveling again. Please give my best regards to James.
