Beautiful wilderness scenery
Oct. 2019
Our English speaking taxi driver collected us from our hotel 4S Stay at Awa-Ikeda and drove us through the Iya Valley stopping at significant viewing spots.
He played English narration to explain what we were looking at. The Vine bridge was spectacular and the Peeing Boy was amusing! The roads were narrow and winding, so it was always a surprise to see what was around the next corner. Interesting old museum, and a fun boat trip. I would recommend this tour to someone who has seen all the “major” sights of Japan and is looking for something a little bit different.

Iya Valley, River Boat Ride, Manniquin Pee, Vine Bridge & more by Private Taxi
Apr. 2019
We stayed in AwaIkeda at 4S Stay Hotel (Ryokan),which is central, right opposite the JR Train and Bus Station. There is also an Information Office where the Staff is very helpful, especially one lady by the name of Tomako who's fluent in English. We discussed that we wished to go to the Iya Valley & surrounds the following day by English speaking Taxi, and she very kindly called the Taxi Service in Oboke & booked it for us.The ladyTaxi Driver was most curtious & knowledgable, and showed us everything we wished to see. We caught the JR Train to Oboke and back- (a 20 min ride) from AwaIkeda, which was very handy.
