What Our Customers Say

Kenji took us on a very pleasant day trip to Shirakawa-go. It is a world heritage site for a good reason and a must see when you are in the area. We extended our tour and went to a great local unassuming restaurant (you must try the Hida beef). We had the most fun experience when our extra guide Shinko veered off the beaten path and took us to a small local sweets shop, where we got to spend time with its friendly and enthusiastic octogenarian owner/craftsman.
