We enjoyed both tours we took in Kobe, both the million dollar night view and the tour of the castle. I would suggest that anyone interested in going to these places do a tour with Hildo. The subway/train system in Kobe is very difficult to figure out, I could not have used the subway without a guide (and I was raised in NY, and used the subways daily).
Hideo was very organized and insightful. He had an itinerary laid out for us and made all our traveling easy. He was knowledgeable about all the places we went and a very nice person. When we come back to Japan, we will tour with Hideo again! Thanks Hideo!!!
This is the first time we are visiting Japan on holidays and we have decided to use TripleLights, also for the first time, for the above itineraries. Having chosen Hideo who have done amazingly well to guide our trips, we are satisfied with his recommendations although the rains in Kyoto somehow dampen things a bit. TQ Hideo.
We have our tour with Mr Hideo, he is so helpful and flexible to cater for our request, he took extra mile to arrange for our train tickets and patience with answering our questions. We will surely hire him again on our next visit. P.s. Mr Hideo wish you good health and happy new year
Wishing to visit Kyoto in depth in the short time we had, we disembarked the ship we are sailing in in Kobe and travelled to Kyoto by Shinkansen, and spent the night there, rejoining our cruise the day after. Hideo picked us up in Kobe and was with us both days. Thanks to him, we saw many sights, using both taxis and public transport, and made it back to the ship with ample time. Hideo is very patient, punctual and knowledgeable and we had two wonderful days with him in this lovely city. Whilst we never felt hurried, we managed to see everything we had planned in advance, with his great help and suggestions, and although we probably just scratched the surface of this great city, we could never have done it without him.
Main purpose was to try the Kobe beef. We went to one of the oldest sake brewery in Japan. There was a sake brewery museum about the history of the brewery which was very interesting. The good sake there are very affordable and for foreigners, tax-free is processed there too. Animal Kingdom was a good place to spend some time especially for family with kids. We had Kobe beef at two places - Mouriya which we chose from recommendation for lunch and Kagura as recommended by Hideo-san. Kagura is a lot more expensive- guess you pay for the teppanyaki showmanship. We didn't have much time for anything else.

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.
