Hiroko-the BEST GUIDE I've ever had in 20 years of travel!
Takayama pre-tour - Shirakawago and Hida Folk Village are both necessary to see. The main tour was all city-life; going to Takayama gave me the countryside and the small town life. This was very important to me! I would have liked a little more free time at each spot. Also, people should add a day more in Tokyo for more free time there. The free time gives us a chance to explore.
