Discovering a new city is exciting, but it's even more fun when you get to do it with a friend by your side. That’s exactly how it will feel as you delve into the heart of the city with one of our local Kobe hosts.

Get ready for an adventure as you explore a city renowned for its marbled beef and framed by vast mountains and scenic harbors.

Here you will find the Ikuta Shrine, one of Japan's oldest Shinto shrines that dates back to the 3rd century.

Feeling energetic? Grab your hiking boots and amble up Mount Rokko, where you can take in the panoramic views over the port. And don't worry, if your legs can't carry you any further there are cable cars to hitch a lift on. Phew.

Venture beyond Mount Rokko and you will come across the outdoor hot springs of Arima Onsen, but if that is not your vibe you could always explore a specific neighborhood you’ve been dying to see or immerse yourself in the city’s exciting food culture.

Sunny out? A walk alongside the seafront will leave you refreshed and it will also provide the perfect backdrop for the best IG snaps!

Kobe is a hive of activity and while you may not be able to experience it all in half a day, your host will help you plug into its pulse.

From fine dining to downtown shopping, pet cafes as well as its famous seafront and beautiful scenery, we all have an idea of how we would like to spend our time in a city, and our hosts can’t wait to experience it with you.
