It was a privilege to have Takashi-san as guide - knowledgeable, responsible, flexible, energetic, happy to go any number of extra miles needed to meet one's requests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Arkady, Thank you very much again for 5-star rating you have presented to me. It's a great honor for me to serve as your tour guide. It was a terrible snowy day. But, this is a typical weather in the Hokuriku region. Weather here changes suddenly in winter. We were able to visit Shirakawago and Takayama as scheduked. Kind regards, Takashi
