Private tour: Shirakawago and Takayama
Jan 2020 • Friends
We had a great full day tour with Mai as our driver/tour guide! Though we were hoping for a snowy Christmas village setting in Shirakawago and takayama, there wasnt any snow yet. But the weather was great! Mai had great smooth driving skills. She was also very kind and patient with us

Beautiful scenery assisted by a great tour guide
Jan 2020
We had a wonderful experience at Shirakawa go with Mai. At first we were sad when we found out that it was not snowy at the village (as we expected a snowy version). However Mai was wonderful, she brought us to try Hida beef and a nice sake at the village. We extended our tour and had the chance to walk around at the village.
