Kobe's night scenery has charmed so many tourists that it ranks itself among the top three in Japan.
The spectacular view of Kobe from Mt.Rokko and Mt.Maya is often called the "10 Million Dollar Night Scene."
There are many restaurants in Sannomiya, the central part of Kobe.
After having dinner such as Kobe beef, sushi, or Chinese food with you, I'd like to take you to see the night view from Mt.Maya. From JR Rokkomichi Station to Mt.Maya it takes about 40 minutes and we'll have to use three modes of transportation. First, it takes about 15 minutes by bus from JR Rokkomichi Sta. to Maya Cable Station. Second, we'll go to the Niji (Rainbow) Station on the Maya Cable Car. Finally, we'll take the Maya Ropeway to Hoshi (Star) Station. The time it takes on the cable car and the ropeway is about 5 minutes each.
From the cable car and ropeway which link the top and the bottom of Mt.Maya in a line, you can enjoy the view of Mt.Maya ,a mountain covered with virgin forests. It's a great way to get up close and persona with the mountain and get to the magnificient panoramic view renowned as the 10 million dollar night scene, easily and quickly.
Mt.Maya Kikuseidai is an observatory deck close to Maya Cable Hoshi Station. Kikuseidai in Japanese means a base(dai), for scooping stars (Kikusei). It provides you with a jewel-like night view of Kobe spreading before your eyes.
And also you can enjoy the promenade, which is called "Kirakira Path", decorated with glittering "Maya Stones", which absorb plenty of sunlight during the day and glitter in the night. It looks like a brilliantly shining Milky Way standing out in the darkness.
Why don't you enjoy Kobe's 10 million dollar night scene, one of the three best night scenes in Japan !!

We enjoyed touring the Shihmizu area with Hideo. He was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us to many places. Our only suggestion for the future is that because he is rather soft-spoken a microphone and speaker would be helpful as it was difficult to hear him in the back of the van. Other than that we wholeheartedly recommend him
Hi Larry Thank you for your point. Unfortunately the van wasn't equipped with a microphone. Next time I'll arrang the taxi with a micophone. I hope you enjoy Japan trip on Celebrity Millennium. Thank you. Best HIDEo YOSHIda
Hideo have us a full day at Kyoto covering major sites and selected a great lunch place. He was knowledgeable about history and each site, and spoke good English. Hideo was very well organized and kept us on track to see everything. It was overly ambitious to try to cover Kyoto sites in one day as we were unable to see each site thoroughly. But we did want an overview and got that and want to return one day to learn more.
Hello Diane I'm very happy to receive your message. I took you from Osaka to Kyoto; Nijo Castle, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, Kinkakuji Temple (Golden Pavilion), and Fushimi Inari Taisha. Thank you for joining my Kyoto tour. I'm sur you enjoy Japan Trip. Best HIDEo YOSHIda
We had a wonderful day with Hideo. He was knowledgeable, friendly and so helpful.
Hi Sandy I'm very happy to receive your review. Matsumoto Castle had a little steep stairs but you easily walked upstaires. In Matsumoto City Museum, I'm sure, you could enjoy the works of Yayoi Kusama, the most famous modern artist in Japan. I wish all of you happiness and I hope to see you again. Thank you, Sandy.
Well-organized, good group control. Very knowledgeable about Japan, and excellent skills at relating it. Sometimes difficulty with communication due to soft and relatively high-pitched voice! Would use again
I'm very happy to receive your review. I'll make use of your point (English speaking) going forward. I hope you enjoy Japan tour on Azamara Quest Cruise Ship. I wish you every happinss. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Bob.
We had a wonderful day with HIDEo. We would recommend booking a tour with HIDEo
I'm very happy to receive your review. We visited Matsue Castle and Shimane winery where we could enjoy wine tasting and barbecue for lunch. Lastly we visited sacred Izumo Grand Shrine closely related to Japanese Mythology. I wish you happiness. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Ariella.
