Kobe come to a vital life again from intense earthquake that hit on Jan 17, 1995. Kobe always creates us a resplendent, exotic mood that the cosmopolitan city has. The old foreign settlement where sophisticated modern architecture still remains upper town must be the reason to ferment that atmosphere. At Meriken Wharf, you can hear the whistles of ships and touch cultural history in this city.

“ Nara Visit ”

Mike was a very good tour guide. He had a lot of information to share with us about Nara. He was very pleasant to spend the day with.Nara Park had hundreds of deer walking around and that was very interesting to see them going up to people who would then feed them. There was a lot of walking on our tour but we did not want to miss anything of interest. Mike controlled our pace and made the trip very interesting.

“ Very professional and goes beyond what is expected ”

From the day I booked Masahisa (Mike) he has been emailing me about the itinerary and helping me with restaurant choices, even our transportation to Koyasan. He has given me so much information that I feel I have underpaid him! Although I only booked him for 8 hours, he stayed with us until 7pm and brought us back to out hotel. He was very professional and I will not hesitate to book him again for my future tours.
