Overview

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. The city is well sheltered by a range of hills, with a population of about 1.5 million ranking it the 6th largest city in the nation.
I can take you to Japanese sake brewery, Kitano Ijinkan (Foreigners' residential area), Kitano-cho (Kobe beef restaurant for lunch), Meriken Park, and Kobe Port Cruising.

What to Expect

Heading up the mountain from Sannomiya will take you to Kitano Ijinkan or Kitanocho's hillside. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, non-Japanese built their residences in Kitano-cho's elevated area at the foot of Mt.Rokko.
The symbol of Kitano-cho's elevated area is the weather cock house that a German trade merchant built. And I take you to Moegi House, or the former US general consul. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums.

Kobe is especially famous for its beef because Kobe Beef is a high quality, delicious beef. There are many Kobe beef restaurants around the Kitano-cho area. Of course I can show you a popular Kobe beef restaurant.
If you want to have Chinese food, I can take you to a good Chjinese restaurant in China town Nankin-cho.

Kobe is also popularly known as Nada-no-Kiippon, Japanese sake brand. You can watch the video about how to make sake and enjoy sake tasting in Hakutsuru sake brewery caompany.

In Meriken Park, the city's landmark, the red Port Tower creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum, which was designed inspired by waves and sailing ships.
Do you know the name "Meriken" comes from? I'll tell you the answer during my tour.

I'm sure you'll also enjoy about 45-minute cruising tour around Kobe Port.
Why don't you join my tour and visit the Kitano Ijinkan, eat Kobe Beef, and go on a cruising tour !!

“ Very informative, caring and punctual ”

My family and I had a wonderful 3-days with Hideo in the Osaka area. I had let Hideo know of what I'd like to see based on some reading and he showed me all those sights and added more which were very worth visiting. He is a remarkably energetic man coping very well with the record heat of July 2018 the whole time we were with him. He explained the history and culture very well and helped us greatly with our dietary and other needs. He also helped us purchase onward Shinkansen tickets to Tokyo and explained very well and patiently how to get to the train in Osaka station. You may have to get used to his accent but once you do, he is a charm to listen to. I would definitely take Hideo's guiding again. Thanks Hideo for making our visit so memorable!

Hideo:

I'm very happy to receive your polite review. After visiting Himeji Castle, we could enjoy flowers in Kokoen Garden. I'm sure you could enjoy seeing Jinbei same shark and other mairne animals in Osaka Aquarium called "Kaiyukan" and Sky Walkway at Umeda Sky Building. I wish all of your family for health and seccess. I look forward to seeing you again. Thank you, Keshav.

“ Day trip in Kyoto ”

We had a lovely day with Hideo, despite the excessive heat and we walked 8 miles! We caught the festival parade, saw all the sites we had on our list and he offered us an extra one the 1,000 gates which we loved at the end. He had the day well planned out, and had a great place picked out for lunch. Thank you to Hideo for a memorable trip to Kyoto!

Hideo:

Hi Laura I'm very happy to receive your review. On that day Gion Festival was held and we managed to see the last two decorated floats. It was a very hot day but I'm relieved noone got hearstroke. I wish your good health, happiness and success. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Laura.
