What to Expect

You can enjoy the Arima Hot Spring resorts, Mt.Rokko, and Sake Tasting on this tour.
Arima onsen is one of the three oldest hot-spring resorts in Japan along with Dogo Onsen in Ehime Prefecture and Shirahama Onsen in Wakayama Prefecture. In the 16th century, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the warlord who unified Japan for the first time in 1590, ordered the Arima Onsen repaired for his personal use.
It is well-known for Kinsen, or the "Gold Spring" and Ginsen, or the "Silver Spring." Arima is located some 360 meters above sea level, on the northern foot of Mt.Rokko in Kobe.

You can enjoy traveling in the air from Arima Onsen Station to Rokko Sancho Station using the Rokko Ropeway. After having lunch at Rokko Garden Terrace, you can look upon a panoramic view of Kobe Bay, Osaka Bay and Wakayama from Tenrandai Observation Platform. We'll go back down from Rokko Sanjyo Station to Rokko Shita Station using the Rokko Cable Car.

In the afternoon, you can enjoy Japanese sake at the Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum. After you appreciate a short video about how to sake is made, you can enjoy some sake sample tasting. You can also enjoy shopping at Sannomiya Center Shopping street or the department stores at Sannomiya, the central part of Kobe. After walking around Kobe Port, I would like to take you to Nankinmachi, or China Town. You can take a look around at the nearby shops, which sell a variety of things such as buta-man (steamed pork buns), ramen (Chinese-style wheat noodles), etc.

Why don't you come join my tour? It'll be lots of fun!

“ Incredible experience and tour guide ”

This was such a great way to experience Kobe and Hideo really did an excellent job, in addition to being friendly and easy to spend a whole day with. His knowledge of the area is superb and he speaks very good English. He really took care of us and even had printed information ready for us as well as a whole day planned that took us to many interesting places in and around Kobe. He was very knowledgeable of all these places and took very good care of us. He even booked us a local restaurant to try for a nice evening dinner. I would highly recommend any tour with Hideo.

Hideo:

Hi Sean I'm very happy to receive your message. I'm sure you enjoyed honeymoon tour; especially Kobe Bay Cruise and Kobe Beef (Xmas special course.) I wish you much happiness and success in the future. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Sean. Best HIDEo YOSHIda

“ Osaka and kyoto tour ”

The two days tour was really an amazing experience. We had a fantastic tour with our tour guide Hideo. He has a very good knowledge about all the places that we visited and showed us some pictures. He was able to answer all my queries about these places and his English was easy to understand compared to my previous guide. We used the public transportation which I really liked and which we had never used before in my previous visit. The overall price for these tours were reasonable and the payment was easy and simple. We also felt honoured to be the first Bruneian in his tour! Being a muslim traveller, he was able to arrange lunch and dinner for us in halal restaurants. He was also helptful and sympathetic to my husband since he has an injury to his leg. So there was one time of the tour th... read more

“ Well Organized ”

Hideo was on time meeting us at our cruise ship. He had already bought our train tickets so we didn't waste time. He had copies of a schedule and a map for our day with him. We saw everything we wanted to see and he explained it all well. We enjoyed the place he took us for lunch. At times I had a little difficulty understanding him, but I asked questions and he clarified what he said.

Hideo:

Hi Sandra I'm very happy to receive your review. I'm sure you enjoyed Hiroshima tour. I hope to see you again. Thank you. Best HIDEo YOSHIda
