The Hida region including Takayama (Takayama City, Gero City, Hida City, and Shirakawa Village in Ono-gun) has its own local tour guide interpreters.

 The local tour guide interpreters are certified professionals who have been trained to guide visitors around the tourist attractions and facilities of Hida, and introduce its culture and food.

 Each of them possesses unique characteristics and skills, including those with a love for history or knowledge of architecture, and others who specialize in activities and photography. By touring the region with them, you will be able to gain new knowledge of the area and discover the true local spots that you are likely unaware of. You will also have the opportunity to interact closely with the local tour guide interpreter, as well as with other local people.

 Why not create your own wonderful memories of Japan and the Hida region with a local tour guide interpreter? We look forward to hearing from you.
