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.
He is a good guy and gentleman. Nice to have accommodate our schedule. He is not very informed and his English is not the best
Hideo was fantastic! We had few quite bad experiences with our tour guides in Japan, but not Hideo. He was extremely prepared, friendly and generally very knowledgable. He also has an extreme level of energy, I was amazed by the pace he established, and how he kept up with it. Overall I would recommmend him. Thank you, Hideo!
We met up with Hideo at Sannomiya Station in Kobe for our afternoon tour. At the start he provided us with a clear itinerary and map of our tour for the day. We went up the hill to see Kitano Ijinkan area, back down to the Merikan Park and Mozaic Mall at the port, and then to Chinatown. Hideo provided a good history of the Kobe Port and the city in general which was very informative. Hideo was also very organized in conducting the tour. We ended the tour with dinner at a nice Japanese restaurant. Overall we had a good taste of the beautiful Kobe City and would love to go back again in the future. Irwan. Boston, MA, USA.
