Touring Spanish group to Shirakawago
This is the third time that that we conduct the tour for the private
groups from Spain. Customers are from different parts of Spain, e.g.
Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza etc. In recent years, Shirakawago is
getting famous among European customers. Last summer, the majority
of the customers are from Spain and Italy. `How do they know
Shirakawago? `I could not help but wondered. Then, I chatted with a
lady from Spain and she told me she found a lot of useful information
in japonismo.com. This website contains updated information related
to travel spots, tips, transport information and most importantly,
they are all written in Spanish. This website is getting popular
among travelers in Spain that they plan their trips by reviewing all
the blogs up there. I guess Shirakawago can be one of the hottest
topic on the website.
weeks ago, we conducted the half day tour to a group of guests from
Spain again!!! I met the tour leader, Antonio for the third time. We
are very lucky that the weather is prefect and there were snow left
in Shirakawago. Antionio said, `this is the most beautiful scenery
that I have seen when compared with my previous visits!!’.
Everyone looked extremely excited with the stunning scenery on the
observation point. Then, we walked together to Kanda house which
serve home-made tea to guests. Guests enjoy so much sitting on the
traditional tatami mat while drinking hot tea prepared by the Kanda
family. The gassho-style house was built at least 200 years ago and
guests treasure this valuable chance to walk around in the house.
Starting from April, Doburoku (sake) festival museum opens from
9:00-17:00 which is good news for sake-lovers. Doburoku is specially
made for appreciating God while Doburoku is only sold in the festival
but not in any shops or restaurants in Shirakawago. Therefore,
guests in this group also enjoy tasting Doburoku and putting the
museum’s chops on papers to bring home! We have a wonderful time
offer Shirakawago tour or tailor-made tours to private groups.
