Gifu Tour Reviews

Detailed plan with flexibility, strong local knowledge

Due to the bad weather, Tetsuji offered alternative to Monet's pond with Inuyama Castle. The change worked out well. The eel lunch in Seki was very good again. Perfect recommendation that only local knows. The old town of Mino and washi paper arts are memorable. Seki was the town for sword making. Traveling 3 cities with local trains within one day needs detail local knowledge. Tetsuji worked out detail plan, also with flexibility due to the weather change. I would recommend Tetsuji for non Japanese speakers want to visit local towns. That will make the trip much easier.

Well planned tour with many details

Tetsuji guided us to Shirakawa-go. The tour was great. Starting from Gifu with train ride to Takayam, the train ride is a tour itself. The view was so beautiful that making the train ride was enjoyable. Right after arrived Shirakawa-go, Tetsuji put our name for a very good restaurant that serves hida beef. The lunch was perfect. Tetsuji was very detail person. Every detail is planned. All the activities that Tetsuji planned have their meanings, which we can feel it. And, Tetsuji took so many pictures of us. I believe those pictures will help us to reminding us about this trip. I would recommend Tetsuji to anyone that come to Shirakawa-go for the first time.

Beautiful day at Shirakawa!

Tetsuji was amazing. He came prepared, and had lots of energy to hike with us and show us around, and took lots of pictures of my fiance and I as he taught us about Shirakawa and its history and current struggles. Tetsuji also helped us get spots at the local restaurant and tea house that said they were closed. If he hadn't been there, we wouldn't have been able to enjoy them. I am forever grateful to Tetsuji for his lovely tour of Shirakawago. Thank you so much!!!

Brian B.
