What to Expect

Kobe has beautiful night views which are considered to rank in Japan's top three night views.

In this tour we will first visit Nankin-machi, China town, always crowded with both locals and tourists and especially attractive at night.
Then walk to Kobe's symbol, the port tower. You can enjoy the view from the 109 meter high tower before taking the short stroll to Mosaic Mall, facing the harbor. Enjoy exploring the friendly mall or simply sit and watch the world go by. With approximately 50 restaurants to choose from, you will certainly find something to whet your appetite. If you wish to have a night cruise, you can catch the last cruise leaving Mosaic at 7pm.

“ Intelligent approach to making the best use of our time ”

Mari is a delightful lady, very easy to talk to with excellent English. Once she knew how long we had, she designed a varied and informative programme which exposed us to temples, markets, shrines and stunning gardens. She is clearly very knowledgeable about her subject but imparts information with a light touch - no monotone lecturing here. Highly recommended


Dear Gill, Thank you very much for your kind review. You don’t how much I enjoyed having you! It was my pleasure showing the highlights of Kyoto. Mari
