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.

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 !!

Wishing to visit Kyoto in depth in the short time we had, we disembarked the ship we are sailing in in Kobe and travelled to Kyoto by Shinkansen, and spent the night there, rejoining our cruise the day after. Hideo picked us up in Kobe and was with us both days. Thanks to him, we saw many sights, using both taxis and public transport, and made it back to the ship with ample time. Hideo is very patient, punctual and knowledgeable and we had two wonderful days with him in this lovely city. Whilst we never felt hurried, we managed to see everything we had planned in advance, with his great help and suggestions, and although we probably just scratched the surface of this great city, we could never have done it without him.
Main purpose was to try the Kobe beef. We went to one of the oldest sake brewery in Japan. There was a sake brewery museum about the history of the brewery which was very interesting. The good sake there are very affordable and for foreigners, tax-free is processed there too. Animal Kingdom was a good place to spend some time especially for family with kids. We had Kobe beef at two places - Mouriya which we chose from recommendation for lunch and Kagura as recommended by Hideo-san. Kagura is a lot more expensive- guess you pay for the teppanyaki showmanship. We didn't have much time for anything else.
He is a good guy and gentleman. Nice to have accommodate our schedule. He is not very informed and his English is not the best
Hideo was fantastic! We had few quite bad experiences with our tour guides in Japan, but not Hideo. He was extremely prepared, friendly and generally very knowledgable. He also has an extreme level of energy, I was amazed by the pace he established, and how he kept up with it. Overall I would recommmend him. Thank you, Hideo!
We met up with Hideo at Sannomiya Station in Kobe for our afternoon tour. At the start he provided us with a clear itinerary and map of our tour for the day. We went up the hill to see Kitano Ijinkan area, back down to the Merikan Park and Mozaic Mall at the port, and then to Chinatown. Hideo provided a good history of the Kobe Port and the city in general which was very informative. Hideo was also very organized in conducting the tour. We ended the tour with dinner at a nice Japanese restaurant. Overall we had a good taste of the beautiful Kobe City and would love to go back again in the future. Irwan. Boston, MA, USA.
