Introducing Two Types of Area Designated Local Certified “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides: Hida Region “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides” and Takayama City Center “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides

Takayama is an international tourist city which many overseas tourists visit each year.
In order for tourists to tour the city much more easily, Takayama has introduced two types of Area Designated Local Certified “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides: Hida Region “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides and Takayama City Center “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides to help them.

The National Guides are those who have acquired a national certification to conduct tour guide services in Japan. Each major location in Japan has these certified guides.
The Takayama City Center “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides are those who conduct their services in Takayama City Center. The guides give tourists information about various sites, such as Sanmachi Street and Takayama Jinya (Government House), and teach them about local products. Tourists will greatly benefit from learning about the attractions in Takayama City Center from these local guides.

In 2016, Takayama City initiated the registration of Hida Region “Tokurei Tsūyaku” Guides. Tourists can now obtain information not only about Takayama City, but also about the world-famous heritage site Shirakawa Village with its Gassho-style houses, Hida City with its beautiful Seto River and white-walled storehouse street and Gero City with its Gero Onsen Hot Springs.

Tourists are strongly encouraged to find a guide who can help make their travel experiences more rewarding by using the Takayama City website links listed below.
