The Luxury Cruise Ship Call at the Port of Kobe

On 21 September 2016, when I arrive at the port of Kobe, the luxury cruise ship "Celebrity MILLENNIUM"  is just about to enter the port about two hours late because of the influence of Typhoon No.16.  At the port a brass band played "Rokko-oroshi", the theme song of the popular Japanese baseball team Hanshin Tigers to welocome the ship.  When the ship just arrivesd at the port,  balloons are released into the sky to celebrate the arrival.

Kobe Sightseeing

I picked up 4 guests from New York at 1PM and visited Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum to enjoy sake tasting. We watched 15-minute movie about how to make sake.  Then we went to "Weather Cock House", the symbol of Kitano Ijinkan (old foreigner's residential area.)
In the evening  they enjoyed walking in the main shopping street in kobe.  They told me that most shops were in New York.  It's beauriful!!  Ellen found writing Chinese characters at calligraphy corner on the street, she was excited that the staff had her name written "the prosper Love" in Chinese.

We had a lovely day with Hideo, despite the excessive heat and we walked 8 miles! We caught the festival parade, saw all the sites we had on our list and he offered us an extra one the 1,000 gates which we loved at the end. He had the day well planned out, and had a great place picked out for lunch. Thank you to Hideo for a memorable trip to Kyoto!

We were fortunate to have Hideo show us around the key sights of Kyoto. He organised the day very well to meet our requests , took us to a great lunch venue, and provided some great insights into everything we saw. Hideo has a pleasant and kindly manner and we appreciated his well structured tour. He also provided excellent tips for self touring on other days. Well done to Hideo!
