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!

“ Kanazawa half day tour ”

Hideo-san is a very competent guide & has a kind & gentle personality. We recommend him highly & confirm that it is very much worth having a paid professional guide.

“ Hideo is Kind and Helpful Guide - highly recommended ”

Hideo got tickets for Kokedera - Temple and gardens. He guided me through the gardens. Helped me when I would have fallen. I have Parkinson's Disease and without his arm to hold, I would have fallen several times. Kind, polite helpful, excellent guide

Hideo:

Hi JEAN. I'm very happy to receive your good review. Saihoji Temple has another name "Kokedera" or moss garden. After reciting Hannya Shigyo, or the heart sutra,three times, we enjoyed walking two gardens; stroll-type garden and dry landscape garden. I'm sure you enjoyed yourself. I wish you all the best of your good health. I hope to see you again. Thank you, JEAN.

“ Full-service guide that kept our large group moving ”

Hideo was a super tour guide! We booked professional tours through the cruise ship at other destinations, and this tour was very comparable to those, at a fraction of the cost. I can highly recommend Hideo, based on this experience. I helped to organize the tour with Hideo for a group from Cruise Critic, that ended up being 25 people. Hideo consolidated all of the costs (travel, entry fees, lunch, etc) into a total fee, and Hideo took care of arranging and planning everything. He met us at the pre-arranged time on the dock and had us back to the dock on schedule. The original plan was to use local public transportation, but Hideo organized private transportation using a comfortable bus, due to the size of the group and concerns about keeping everyone together. Hideo also offer... read more

Hi Todd I'm very happy to receive your message. All of you kept time, so I could move ahead on the schedule. I'd like to show you the appreciation. I wish you every happiness. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Todd.

“ Himeji tour ”

A group of six adults had arranged for Hideo to meet us at the ship and take us to the castle and adjoining gardens and then go on the rope way above the town. We found to our disappointment that Hideo had no interest in the group. He rarely volunteered any information, but did have some answers if we persisted with questions. One of our party was using a walkingstick and he showed no interest in her well-being, particularly in the fact that there were so many flights of steps which we had to do barefooted. At no stage did he check whether she was all right with this or whether she would have preferred to head back downstairs before reaching the top. He would walk ahead of us and not wait to see if we were all together. At one stage he took off across a busy road to make inquiri... read more

Hideo:

Dear Sandy I awfully sorry to say that I troubled you. I gave the itinerary to you when I met you, so I thought that where we would go next. First I was going to have lunch in Koukoen Garden but the restaurant was full, so temporarily I seperated to look for another restaurants but I couldn't find it. I'd like to take your point seriously and I'll make use of this experienc moving forward. Thank you, Sandy.
