What to Expect

Kobe is a historic port city, easily accessible by local train from Osaka.
Situated between the Rokko Mountains in the north and the harbor in the south, Kobe is a relaxing city with nice views.

In this tour we will visit 3 or 4 of the following places of your choice:

1. Kobe Harborland
You can enjoy bay cruise (45 min.) and shopping and eating at open air Mosaic Mall.

2. Chinatown
Chinatown is only several minutes away from the harbor by sight-seeing bus. The area has been developed since Chinese people came to Kobe after the opening of Kobe Port in 1868.
The place is always crowded with many people eating street food and shopping Chinese goods.

3. Kitano Foreign Residence Area
Westerners first lived in the Old Settlement Area in Motomachi, but later they started to build houses on a hill near Rokko Mountains. There still remain about 20 houses in the area, and some of them are open to visitors today. Also, in the area you can find nice cafes and souvenior shops.

4. Kobe Nunobiki Herb Garden
Going up 330 meters by ropeway (10 min.) brings us to the garden entrance.
It's a large garden on a slope with a lot of herbs and flowers. You can also enjoy a nice view of the city on a clear day.

5. Kobe Beef in Sannomiya
Sannomiya is in the center of the city; if you like to have Kobe Beef, I can recommend a nice Teppanyaki restaurant that a chef cooks right in front of you.
(Kobe Beef Lunch is available 3,500yen-7,000yen.)

“ Very Nice Kyoto Tour ”

Mari was a very professional and knowledgeable guide for my families one day tour of Kyoto coming in from Tokyo. She communicated with me several times as our trip approached to understand what our interests were and then tailored the tour accordingly. She was very pleasant to work with and I would recommend her without hesitation for others looking to book a tour of Kyoto.

“ Lovely person, created a program fitted to our needs ”

Mari negotiated our way around Kyoto for two days so that we saw much more than otherwise possible. She answered all our questions fully and found out anything that she didn't know. We had a great time with her and learned a lot about Japan.
