Join me for an all included relaxed tour of Asuke town, a peaceful retreat from the busyness of Nagoya. Stroll through the historic streets, dip your toes in the river, and if you're feeling adventurous, embark on a gentle hike. Immerse yourself in the serene ambiance of the Edo period and enjoy the tranquility that Asuke has to offer. I will video your trip and take pictures so your experience, and memory will be preserved.

09:00 AM

Meeting Point

hotel, hostel, airbnb, station, etc

- I will pick you up at your desired location, I'll be there 9 or 10, if you're not an early bird. We can always stop at a convenience store or Starbucks along the way if your morning caffeine intake wasn't enough or if you just want something to nibble on.

10:00 AM

Toyota car museum

Explore the Toyota Automobile Museum in Nagakute, a must-visit destination for car enthusiasts. Discover a collection of vehicles showcasing the evolution of automotive technology and design. From vintage classics to modern cars, the museum offers a comprehensive look at the history of automobiles, with a special focus on Toyota's contributions to the industry. Whether you're a car aficionado or just curious, the Toyota Automobile Museum promises a fascinating and educational experience. But if you're any bit like my wife, we'll speed past it, without braking.

Korankei valley

Korankei valley. In Korankei valley, you can get away from the business of Nagoya, walk around, dip your toes in the river and if you’re up to it go on a small hike and visit a shrine hidden in the forest. Even though Asuke is most famous for its 4000 Japanese maple trees which create beautiful autumn colors, it’s beautiful whole year round. If we're lucky you might hear the sound of the bush warbler, a tiny bird with a big voice.

12:30 PM

Lunch time!

I will prepare a traditional bento lunch box and eat outside near the river. Please let me know beforehand about food restrictions

01:10 PM

Korankei/Sanshu Asuke yashiki/Asuke town

Inside Korankei is Sanshu Asuke yashiki, an open-air museum which showcases traditional Japanese farmhouses and daily life during the Edo period. Visitors can see demonstrations of traditional crafts and participate in hands-on activities. It is also great for photography and buying small hand made goods.

Asuke is a charming, historic town. It is renowned for its well-preserved Edo-period atmosphere and scenic beauty. You can enjoy the atmosphere of a bygone era. The town's architecture and layout have been carefully preserved, making it a favorite spot for history enthusiasts and photographers.

(sanshu asuke yashiki is closed on thursdays)

02:00 PM

Asuke castle

A historic site that offers a glimpse into Japan's feudal past. Located in the charming town of Asuke, this reconstructed castle provides an authentic experience of the Edo period. Wander through its well-preserved grounds, admire the traditional architecture, and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Asuke Castle is not just a monument of history but also a serene spot where you can appreciate the natural beauty and cultural heritage of the region. (for Pilipino travelers, this a location where pusong dragon by Abra was recorded)

03:00 PM

Zoufukuji temple

Toyota cars, Japanese maple trees, a bush warbler, a castle.......all that's missing from this trip is a visit to a temple. I will bring you to Zoufukuji temple, a quiet local temple in a rather old little village. The sounds of thousands of wind chimes fill the air, while we slowly walk around and enjoy the peacefulness of these surroundings

04:00 PM

Head back to Nagoya.

Slowly we head back to Nagoya, and if you're not time restricted, I can show you some places on the way back or bring you to a department store (AEON) where you can stock up on food, clothes, buy a dog, sanitary products, make up basically things which are hard to get once you're back in the city center.

I'll drop you off at your desired place and say sayonara....
