Kobe is famous for a port which was opened to foreign trade in the second half of the 19th century for the first time after long isolation policy in the past. That means Kobe is rich in an air of exotic compared to other cities in Japan. I'd like you to enjoy Kobe with a little bit different atmosphere.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Keiji.

Calm, professional, helped us get through a number of bus and train transitions. Always looking out for the group and very attentive. Good interaction with everyone. Wonderful itinerary, and excellent information. English a little difficult to understand, but content and vocabulary excellent. Could speak more slowly and carefully. But that did not get in the way
Dear Bob, Thank you for the great reputation. I'm going to make efforts to improve my English to let customers understand my English. I hope to see you again. Keiji
Very helpful and made sure we are all ok
Dear Esther, Thank you for a good evaluation. I hope you enjoy your trip in Japan.l Keiji
We were disappointed only with Keiji's lack of English as he tells us he is an English Teacher and for a licenced guide he wasn't very forthcoming with information, we found it a bit like pulling teeth trying to get some information from him, he was very quiet and not very talkative about the places we were visiting. We think we could have done this tour without him as we didn't learn anything about the places we visited that we wouldn't have learned on our own. However, he was a pleasant man.
Dear Helen. Thank you for the advice. I 'm going to study hard to satisfy guests. keiji
We had a great time, very nice man, and a lot of knowledge
Dear Dan, I appriciate your good reputation given to me. Your words encourage me to keep my job as a tour guide. Thank you very much. Keiji
I highly recommend Keiji as a guide for a one day trip to Naoshima, particularly if you are not familiar with the transportation and schedule logistics of getting to Naoshima from another location. Because Keiji is well versed in all transportation aspects of getting to the Island, getting around the Island and where to have an outstanding lunch, we were able to make the most of our one day sightseeing trip from Okayama to Naoshima, visiting the Chichu museum, Bensesse Museum ( for a delightful lunch, too) and the Art House project. Keiji was able to handle our scheduling constraints and was also a charming and friendly companion for our memorable day on Naoshima.
Dear Gail, Thank you for the good reputation you gave me. I'm really glad I had been with you. The next time you happen to come to around Okayama, I'd like you to book me again. best regards Keiji
