Very knowledgeable and helpful

Murakami-san was an excellent guide. He grew up in Kanazawa so he has a wealth of information about the city's history and culture. The itinerary he arranged was customized to our interests, and he was very attentive to our needs. Unfortunately we had to end our tour a little early due to some minor health issues. He seemed disappointed, so please make sure he knows that it was not because of anything he did--we were very pleased with his services.

Jackie P.

Dear Jackie, Thank you very much for 5-star rating and wonderful comment to my guide service. It was a fine day, and became cloudy in the afternoon. Overall it was a nice day for the tour. When you had your gold leaf experience at the workshop, the room was noisy because of the private section remodeling construction work of the shop. I am very much happy that you enjoyed the tour with me.. Best regards, Takashi

Kanazawa 10 hr Tour

Takashi was a very good & thoughtful guide. He provided a brochure that was waiting for us at our hotel when we checked in confirming all details. Our tour was amazing, wonderful scenery on bus to Shirakawa-go an amazing world heritage site. Then back to Kanazawa, visited Gardens, Castle & original Samuri area. So much culture & history. Takashi provided much information. Based on our experience we would thoroughly recommend Takashi's services & tour.

Mrs. oey dwi P.

Dear Mrs. Thank you for a high evaluation to my guide service. We started the tour behind schedule because of your unsuccessful booking of train seats. So, I had to cancell seats of a highway bus originally booked. Seats of all highway bus after original one were all booked by other passengers. So, we took alternative route from Shin-Takaoka to Shirakawago and Takayama. We were lucky that we were able to vist both Shirakawago and Takayama as we planned. It was cold, cloudy and sometimes snowy day. Thank you again. Kind regards, Takashi

During the Edo period ( for about 270 years), Kanazawa flourished as a castle town of the Kaga Clan.

Many traditional arts and crafts were developed by the support of the Maedas. Many historic sites , traditional arts and crafts remain in the town. Kanazawa is a gastronomic city, too.
