Hey there, I'm Ryan, your friendly local host in Kobe! In my downtime, you'll often find me sipping on local craft beers, exploring new flavors, and chatting with the friendly locals. And speaking of exploration, I'm an enormous hiking enthusiast. Kobe's mountains offer a treasure trove of trails waiting to be discovered. After a day of hiking, there's nothing like a relaxing soak in one of the local onsens. Sannomiya and Motomachi are areas I know, like the back of my hand. But I also have a soft spot for Rokko Island, Nada Ward, Uozaki, and the Rokko hiking trails. You could say I'm a bit of a Kobe guru when it comes to hidden gems. So, if you're looking for an unforgettable time in Kobe, count on me to make it fun and memorable. Let's explore this incredible city together!
