Hi! My life-style has been changed so much since I moved here. My hometown is an island in Nagasaki surrounded by the ocean. No beach here, but there are many beautiful mountains and nature here in Takayama! The scenery is really really really awesome and Takayama is an historical and tasteful city. I really appreciate being able to live here:) I would like more people to know this beautiful city and beautiful Japan. I am looking forward to seeing you in Takayama.

Hi! Due to my strong interest in Japanese culture, I came to Japan in February,2014 with my working holiday visa. I lived in Hokkaido and Kyoto before. I love Takayama because of its natural scenery in distinct seasons, e.g. Sakura in spring, fresh green in summer, autumn colour and snowy winter. During spare time, I usually visit cafes and explore new places in Japan. Life is too short to rush for everything and I hope you can enjoy the tranquility of Takayama and enjoy the time here. I can’t wait to introduce you all the lovely places around here and am looking forward to meeting you!

aki Name Aki
Hometown Kyoto-shi

I like Traveling, Reading books
I dislike Onions not fried enough
Hi, I am a middle aged Japanese man born and raised in Kyoto. I have already introduced myself officially on some other pages, and here I want to introduce what I'm doing Hida Takayama. On sunny days, I often go to mountains, waterfalls and nearby wetlands with the staff and guests, and it is very refreshing. In the afternoon, I sometimes go to the local open-air hot spring bath, it is very relaxing. In the evening, I usually go to the local restaurant and enjoy delicious Hida beef and fresh sea food from Japan Sea. It is kind of heaven. Please visit Hida Takayama and enjoy together!
