Let's enjoy picking pears at a farm in Kobe Nishi-ward. Kobe is famous for Kobe Beef, but you can enjoy tasting the freshness of just-picked pears.

What to Expect

You can enjoy tasting the delicious and sweet pears that the farmers have carefully grown. But I want you to experience not only the tasting of delicious pears but also the beauty of the countryside of Japan. The beautiful scenery along route 175, from a bus window between the pear farm and JR Akashi station is reminiscent of the scenery of old Japan. The paddy field scenery is changing every day. The green sprouts of rice in the beginning of summer become golden ears of rice hanging down in the fall. We feel the change of seasons by looking the paddy fields. Around both equinoxes (Spring and Autumn), we can see amaryllis blooms. As a tour guide, I hope to have the chance to show you this aspect of my home town. I am waiting with some white herons who live with us among the paddy fields, and hope to see you soon.

“ Very knowledgable and sweet tour guide ”

Thank you Ms Toshiko-san for showing us the Kobe/Arima Onsen. She was so sweet and gave my 2 boys a fan as a remembrance. She is very knowledgable on the Kobe history. She even has these big binders that she created on her own. we love the walking area and seeing the Kobe / Arima Onsen. She help us like a mother and my grandma to my kids. She entertain my 2 boys as well. Eventhough we didnt have enough time to see Harbour City, she showed us the upper area of Kobe. We were in a hurry since we dont have enough time but still manage for me to get some goodies from Kobe. Arigatou Gozaimasu Ms Toshiko-san. We would love to see Kobe again.


Thank you so much for your warm review. The time with you and your family was also a big pleasure for me. In your tour, I was very impressed your attitude to show the respect to Japanese culture, and to your kids to teach the manners and behavior. I want to see your beautiful kids again in a near future. Kobe has more attraction such as harborland and Rokko, please come to Japan and Kobe again.
