“ 2 days in Kobe & Osaka ”

We arranged for Hero to guide us in both Kobe & Osaka as we were on a Cruise and so had limited time in each port so wanted a local guide to give us a good taste of what is on offer in these cities. Hero was friendly, punctual and flexible with the schedule on both days giving us options of what to do and took us to local restaurants and bars which we would have not gone to as tourists on our own. Both the Japanese BBQ and Sushi Bar he chose were fantastic quality and good value. We really enjoyed the local experience of these. During the tour he was helpful providing information and taking photos for us which meant we have many more of us together than normal. Thanks for your time and great service Hero!


Thank you very much for your sweet review. It was great time with both of you even we had limited time. Both of you were nice to me and respect my opinion and Japanese custom. So I was happy to guide for you too. I hope you will miss Japanese culture and come back to Japan again. Thank you again for hiring me!!Cheers!!

We had a great time in Japan with Hero as our guide. He took us around Kobe and Osaka and we had so much fun. He is the nicest guy. He took us to all of the best restaurants. He even taught us how to use chopsticks! We definitely will hire him again the next time we visit Japan.


It was such a great days with you and many kind of animals. I do not know how many animals did we meet while our adventure. Thank you very much for proposing great itinerary. I will check your chopsticks skills. You have to practice chopsticks until next time! ;) Yes, we love all animals!!!Yeahhhhh!!!
