4.5 /5 Customer Review

by evelyn Singapore   /  27 Jun 2019

We went in late June and the weather was clear and not too hot. The Gassho houses, communal life and the history and role of the architecture form a rich and beautiful heritage backdrop for the visit. The local English language guide - Ms. Mayumi - is very fluent, well-prepared and knowledgeable in the geographical, historical and cultural knowledge of the Gokayama, Shirakawago and Takayama areas. Thumbs up for her excellent service and commentary! Lunch at Teishoku was rustic but delicious no less. :)
