This tour focuses on the top attractions of Takayama to introduce the best of what it has to offer. There are many preserved buildings and other forms of valuable cultural artifacts unique to Takayama. Yet, they would only be “just another building” or “some tasty thing” if you don’t know the background or the historical significance. Expand your knowledge of Takayama and Japan with straightforward explanations from your tour guide!
You’ll not only enjoy the scenery of the town, and discover the charms of Japanese architecture, but also learn about Buddhism and temples while strolling through nature. After the comprehensive tour, you’ll know the differences between the types of sake and what kind of food to pair it with at a Japanese restaurant or izakaya!
By the end of the tour, you will have a better understanding of Japanese people and will even have the chance to interact with the locals. Above all, you can go home with the special friendship you’ve made with your local guide!
