It has been warm in Feb. as a winter in Takayama. There is no snow outside at all.
A group of Intrepid came and stayed with us which had a veteran tourlader and 2 trainees.
Group members were interested in Japanese culture.
They enjoyed having traditional Japanese breakfast at Sosuke.
Thank you very much for staying with us.
It was wonderful to see again the lady who joined a tour of Intpreid group last year.
She said that she had a wonderful stay at Sosuke with the group. Especially the breakfast was so nice.
So she decided to come and stay at sosuke with her mother this time.
Thank you so much for coming again.
You can try 12 kinds of Sake at Harada Sake brewery in the center of town for 300 yen and 2 kinds of Sake at Funasaka Sake brewery for free.
Gourp menber tried all of them. I went to the breweries with them. I hope that it was not too much to sip many sake for them.
Thank you for staying with us.

The big typhoon had gone through the Japan on 12th October.
We needed to stay inside while it was approaching to this area.
Intrepid group stayed with us, spending around our fireplace called IRORI.
They watched news of the typhoon.
Some of members joined our calligraphy lessons.
It looked very nice to have an experience of one of Japanese culture.
We didn’t have a big damage in Takayama.
The next morning the could go out the historical town of Takayama.
We would like to offering our sincere sympathy to the people living in the region hit by the typhoon.
A group that always has a tour leader.
She visited and stayed with us several times for some years.
She is going to get married soon.
My husband and I have daughters who are the same generation. We feel like that one of our daughters will get married.
Thank you for coming with wonderful members of group Intrepid.
Intrepid foodie tour.
Members were very interested in local food in Takayama.
I like cooking, eating. I’m interested in foods.
So I couldn’t stopped talking about foods with them.
They tried Sake kasu pickles.
Sake kasu is lees; rice particles when it’s separated liquid.
It’s strong taste, but they were brave to try.
Sake is made of Sake rice.
They visited a Sake brewery to know how to make sake. One of menber knew about Koji mold.
He was the first person who knew Koji mold. He made Rice Koji at home as a hobby.
For the summer heat fatigue,having Rice Koji soup(drink) called Amazake will be helped to recover.
I was happy that they listened the explanation enthusiastically.
Thank you for visitng Takayama during the hot summder in Japan.
It has been hot Takayama. But they went out to stroll around a center of town under the hot weather.
Even though they came back to Sosuke with smile. And enjoyed staying at Sosuke.
Thank you for staying with us! See you again, next time in winter.
A group staying at Sosuke visited Funasaka Sake brewely try to taste 2 kinds of Sake after learning how to make a sake at Funasaka sake brewely.
It is rainy season, so it becomes a bit quite in Takayama.
so it is easy to stroll around the center of Takayama historical town in this seaon. I think that if you don’t like busy season, it is nice to visit Takayama in June.
Intrepid groups stayed with us in June. Some of the group menbers were a doctor and a nurse. They were in their holiday, but gave some advice to the other members who had healthy problems during the tours! How nice people they were!
Thank you very much staying with us. See you again.
