A visit to Gujo Hachiman from Takayama – new private tour from J-hop tour


While we are looking forward to the cherry blossom in Shirakawago, would you like to visit a hidden small town to experience Japanese culture and taste delicious food?

We would like to introduce a beautiful and traditional Japanese castle town – Gujo Hachiman as a day trip option from Takayama from this April.
Gujo Hachiman is about 1 hour 45 minutes by bus from Takayama. It can only be accessed by bus as it does not have any JR station. 






 

Since this April, we are going to organize tours for private groups (from 2 person).
With our English or Chinese speaking tour guide, you will be able to enjoy a fun day by experiencing Japanese culture and taste the delicious local food. 
 
Gujo Hachiman is a town surrounded by waterways where you should not be miss if you would like to have a feel of old Japan and explore how people live in the old time. The town is famous especially in summer for the Gujo Odori Dance Festival which has been running for 400 years. Gujo Hachiman Castle up on the hill is one of the oldest reconstructed wooden castle in Japan. Except the spectacular scenery, how about participating in some workshops to experience the Japanese culture?
