Hi, I'm Junichi, a Japanese business owner, based in Takayama. My hometown is Ogaki, Gifu prefecture, not too far from Takayama. After working in Africa for 10 years as development aid worker, I moved to this small but lovely town, Takayama in 2015 with my family.
We opened a Thai restaurant on the ground floor of our house. My wife "PUY" is Thai and she cooks great Thai food. Currently we are the only one Thai restaurant in Takayama!
We also run a guest house in the same building, just 2 minutess walk from Takayama Station.
I am also a government-licensed English tour guide, and sometimes conduct local guided tours nearby Takayama, Shirakawago heritage village, or other spots. Guiding can be done in English, French or Thai.
