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

Beautiful Shirakawago

Yoko has brought us good luck where we were greeted with snowy white Shirakawago in the middle of March. It was snowing heavily the day before our tour. It has the most beautiful view from every corner. Yoko has managed perfectly by sharing the history of the town and showing us different parts of the town. We had a toddler who threw tantrums from time to time. Thank you Yoko for your patience and also she brought us to this restaurant that serves melt in your mouth Hida beef and good quality Japanese Sake from Takayama region. Many thanks Yoko!

I appreciate your kind words. Boy, 22 months old, was our hero. Snow, socks, sake, and many things about Japanese, our talk was endless. It was a wonderful time spent in Shirakawago with a happy family. Thank you so much.
