Invigorating Serenity
Jul 2019 • Friends
Words can’t explain the experience. The beauty, the serenity, the natural water falls, the cultural experience. The time spent wasn’t enough! This is one of the many places I will return to for a longer duration and a local stay. I strongly encourage anyone who visits and especially those who live in Japan to spend time here. Breathe deeply. Appreciate the calming effect of the waterfalls and the natural habitat, the kindness and knowledge of the guides, and immerse yourself. I can’t wait to return!

Thank you for your encouraging comment. The time you could stay here was limited, but yet I'm happy to know that the time was so memorable to you. Hida-Osaka will continue the way it is and we will always welcome you here. Please let me know without fail next time you return to Japan!

Best tour ever in the nature!
Jul 2019 • Business
I am a Japanese teacher from America and took 14 high school students to study Japanese for a month. We spent a couple of days in Hida-Osaka and it was the highlight of our trip. They were able to experience an awesome hike with very experienced guides and then they all swam in the beautiful falls at the end of our hike. Our favorite guide was Reiko. She was fluent in English and was able to answer all my students questions. I really want to go back next time with my husband and children.

Thank you so much for your comment. I enjoyed hosting your group very much. Also the Hida-Osaka locals loved to receive young visitors from America and it was a great experience for both of us! I have to thank you for bringing the big idea to this small town. Please let me know when you come to Japan next time with your husband and kids!
