Hey there! I'm Manami, your friendly local host here in Kobe! One of my favorite pastimes is exploring Kobe's food scene, diving into authentic flavors at local restaurants and savoring Japanese craft beer and sake. But my adventures don't stop there! I thrive on new experiences, especially when it comes to visiting Japanese sake breweries like those in Sanda City and Sasayama. I'm your go-to for the best live music venues, particularly for Japanese rock, and I know just the spots to indulge in the city's mouthwatering local dishes. Plus, I'm well-versed in the neighborhoods, whether it's the relaxing hot springs of Arima or the hustle of Kobe Premium Outlet. Let's make the most of your time in Kobe together—whether it's soaking in the scenery, savoring delicious food, or rocking out to some tunes, I'm here to ensure you have an unforgettable experience!
