I did the cycling tour of Himi with Mr. Oma. He speaks great English and highlighted many interesting features of Himi. We started at the harbour and learned about the fishing industry, then proceeded to the coast and saw a local shrine. We ate delicious gingko mochi at a shop downtown, and then cycled to Jonichiji temple. I really enjoyed the beautiful architecture and seeing the ancient gingko tree there, and hearing from Mr. Oma about the features of the temple and festivals they have there. We got to see various parts of the city, enjoyed another local sweet shop, and finished at the Shishimai museum where we saw a video to learn about the festival. Cycling was a great way to see the best of Himi and I enjoyed getting a little background on the different points of interest. I highly recommend Mr. Oma's tour!

Mr. Oma speaks great English, better than any tour guide I've ever had in Japan (including in Tokyo and Kyoto). It was fun and the value for your money is good. It is only 2,000 yen and includes transportation to and from Takaoka city (it is hard to go from Takaoka to Himi by train). Also, you get a free snack :). If you will be in Toyama prefecture, you should do it.

Thank you so much for writing the review, Ms.Alexis. Since it was a monitor tour, the price was lower than a proper one, but I hope it will be worth joining even by a proper price. I'm very glad to know that you enjoyed this tour featuring local culture and history, and food, as well as peaceful scenery of the seaside and the rustic rice fields view!!

He attended me walking around not only famous areas but also areas which are only known to local people but still interesting. He has really deep understanding of these areas, and well explained them in clear English. Especially, Zuiruji is exciting. He explained the general temple characteristics and its function as defense base. Highly recommend tour to those who want to have an unique experience.

I took this tour with friends on a Sunday! It was great fun and I learned so much too! So we began by stopping at the boat harbour and learned about the fishing industry of Toyama. We headed along beautiful coastlines view to the mountains, though the day was hazy but still the scenery was gorgeous. After stopping at a local produce store we enjoyed cutting through the rice fields and areas that I was surprsed to learn were once inundated! The lunch of traditional Japanese local cuisine was so delicious! The restaurant and farm, Orchard Farm is in a lovely location with beautiful gardens. Our final destination was the Shishimai Museum. Shishimai or Lion Dance is a strong tradition of the area and I enjoyed this destination. I found the ride was very relaxing and the scenery gorgeous! The places visited are interesting and I learned so much about local culture! Thank you so much!

My friend and I joined his tour as one of first customers! Everything including the sea and rice field we saw was beautiful. What we liked most was the fact that the town is not commercialized and so we were able to enjoy relaxing atmosphere, feeling great in cycling! Mr. Oma showed us a local shop where we tasted some local food. The restaurant he took us after the tour was delicious too. highly recommended if you would like a city escape from Kanazawa.
