How did I start

RItratti ASL luglio 2023 - IMG_E2620.jpg

Hi everyone, my name is Luca, I am Italian and I have lived for more than seven years in the beautiful city of Takayama, I am the freelance guide so called Amico del Solevante. I began my travel experience with Japan seventeen years ago, out of an innate inclination to one of the most exotic countries on the planet. I speak ​​Italian, English and Japanese. After years around the world, I decided to stop in this small metropolis. The thing that struck me the most is the fact that in such a tiny city there is so much cultural wealth, history and great food. I am an extremely curious person, and after seven years I have come to know Takayama, Shirakawa, Kanazawa and around very well. I think I differentiate myself from many guides as I am not just a guide. I am professional artist, with more than 20 years in the hospitality and customer service experience and everything I do, the stories I tell are always crafted with my way of seeing the world. So here I am, your private artist-guide ready to create with you beautiful experiences! For quotes and information do not hesitate to contact me!
