What to Expect

Kobe is a historic port city, easily accessible by local train from Osaka. (20 minutes by rapid train) It has an 'international atomosphere', and you can enjoy a bay cruise as well as shopping and dining, including Kobe beef. Following is a sample itinerary and you can choose some of the spots according to your interests: 1. Sake Brewery Kobe is one of the most famous sake making areas in Japan. We can visit Nada sake-brewing district to learn about sake making and enjoy a free sake tasting. 2. Sannomiya It is located in the center of the city. Ikuta Jinjya Shrine is only ten minute walk from the station; it has a long history of about 1800 years. If you like to have Kobe beef, I can take you to a good cozy restaurant there. Lunch is usually available at 3000-6000yen depending on the size. Sannomiya also has a long shopping arcade with hundreds of shops of all kinds. 3. Chinatown We will take a tourist bus called Kobe City Loop (660yen for One day pass) to Chinatown. The place is always crowded with people for Chinese food. Just walking around there is a lot of fun. Of course you can choose to eat in Chinatown instead of Kobe Beef. 4. Harbor Area A 10 minute bus ride will take you to a harbor area. There you can enjoy a bay cruise (45min.for 1,200JPY), shopping & eating at open roof Mosaic Mall. 5. Kitano Foreign Residence Area When foreigner first came to Kobe, they had residences in the hill top Kitano area. Some of the residences are restored and open to visitors today. 6. Kobe Nunobiki Herb Garden Enjoy herbs & flowers and the view overlooking the city from the garden (330meters above the ground). You can see Nunobiki Waterfalls when you go up by a ropeway.

“ She took care of us! ”

Our family was a group of 8 people with very old and very young members so it was a nightmare to bring them to the same pace and ensure that we complete a full day itinerary. But Mari was very patient and mindful. She adjusted the tour at Kitano, originally she intended to bring us to a house on top of a hill but seeing the difficulty of the older family members to navigate the steep hill she brought us instead to 2 legacy houses that were near each other. She also patiently waited for the members of the group when they were late and looked for the young ones when they didn't make it on time to the meeting place. She was like a mother to all of us. Thank you Mari!

Dear Veronica, Thank you very much for your review. Yes, I tried to be like a mother to you! I wanted each one of you to enjoy the tour, and I'm glad you did! Mari

“ Tour of Kobe ”

We toured Kobe with Mari as our guide. I listed down the places my family and I would like to visit and she fixed our itinerary. She is accommodating and converses well in English. She made sure we would have a great time and we did! Thank you, Mari. It was nice meeting you. We all enjoyed the tour.

Dear Jenny, Thank you for joining my Kobe tour. It was my pleasure to have you. As cherry blossoms were a little late this year, you came to Japan at perfect timing! I'm glad to know you enjoyed the highlights of hot springs, cable car ride, Shushinkan sake brewery and the harbor area. Mari

“ Superb, A++ Tour Guide! One of the Best! ”

Mari is one of the kindest, patient and very accomodating tour guide. She went out of her way to find the Anello bags my sister was looking for, show us the bargain manga books for my daughter and her painting materials. Not only that, she made reservations for us at the famous restaurant known for Kobe Beef. She also shows us the many attractions of Kobe and knows how to interact with my kids. Also very patient with them. Lastly, went back with us back to Osaka station when she lives in Kobe. I really appreciate it. Will book with you again when we come back!
