This value-packed trip with a nationally/state licensed and experienced multilingual tour guide is a fantastic and efficient way to explore Takayama! Takayama features an atmospheric townscape, with Meiji-era inns and hillside shrines in a riverside setting. In addition, many museums, galleries and temples make their home in the city's 17th century layout. Be sure to come see the Takayama Festival, held once in spring and once in autumn, but be prepared for the crowds as the festivals attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Let us know what you would like to experience and we will customize a four-hour tour that's best for you! Note*1: Please select your must-see spots from a list in the tour information to create your customized itinerary. Note*2: Nationally and State Licensed Tour Guide-Interpreter certification is issued by the Japanese government requires a good knowledge and understanding of Japanese culture and history.

Response from Japan-Guide-Agency, Your Guide, Yuriko(Lily) at Takayama Half-Day Private Tour with Government Licensed Guide
Responded 11 Mar 2020
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! I was very happy to have a chance to see you and guide you around Takayama. And I am very glad to hear that both of you enjoyed Takayama. I was very impressed to see you making Japanese old crafts, such as paper knife and "Sarubobo", or small baby money shaped good luck charm, so well!! I also had a wonderful time with you. There are a lot of beautiful places to visit in Gifu, Japan. Please come again. I'm very looking forward to seeing you again. See you soon!! Yuriko(Lily)
