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 roof 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 3500yen-7000yen.)

“ Osaka Tour ”

Unfortunately, I got sick on the day of the tour. But I talked to my group and asked about Ms Mari. They told me that Ms Mari is so kind, came on time and spoke softly. She was so fast in walking as per my group! But they managed to follow her. She explained every detail to them. Two thumbs up!

“ What a great time with Mari ”

Mari was excellent in both the planning and the tour itself. She was great in corresponding with me on the decisions of how to plan the day. She was so great that we booked a second tour with her based upon the planning of the first. The tour was perfectly executed and we maintained the schedule. Mari is such a pleasant person it was a joy to tour with her.

“ Kyoto 8hr tour ”

Mari is very pleasant, helpful and very patient with us as we had to stop a lot of times for picture taking. We were able to see a lot of places in a short period of time. We learned a lot from Mari as she explained to us the history of the places we visited. She answered all our questions well. She took us to the places that we wanted to visit. We had an excellent time with Mari. She made our visit to Kyoto memorable. We will definitely recommend Mari to our friends and relatives who will visit Japan in the future.

“ An Enjoyable Private Tour To Kobe ”

Miss Mari is a very professional, friendly and thoughtful tour guide. She understands the needs of my mother. Prior to the start of our private tour, Miss Mari managed to help us find a private van for rental even though our private tour booking is very last minute. She also helped us to make lunch reservation for kobe beef, which was a great lunch! We enjoyed our one day private tour to Kobe at our own pace enjoying the scenery and shopping in Kobe. Towards later in the evening, after our shopping, it was drizzling in Kobe and considering that it was too far to walk to the other pick-up point for our rented van, Miss Mari called our driver to meet us at a nearer pick-up point (a shorter walk for my mother). We are very thankful to her for that. We will definitely look for Miss Mari again as our tour guide in our next holiday in Japan. Thank you Miss Mari!!

“ Great customised tour of Osaka ”

Mari brought our family of four to tour around Osaka, covering highlights including the Nijo-jo castle, Dotombori and Dendentown, where we visited a couple of manga stores which my daughters have thoroughly enjoyed. She was patient, helpful and professional.
