Full description
Spend the day with a local host and discover the true nature of Kobe and its staggering food scene. Within 24 hours after booking, receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host who will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to show you what makes the city unique. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do. Discover one of Kobe's eclectic neighborhoods, exploring the thriving Kobe Motomachi Shopping Street and indulge in authentic cuisine while soaking up the vibe in Nankinmachi, Kobe’s Chinatown. Scale the Kobe Port Tower, where you can see the city's sweeping skyline highlighted by the neon, which casts its colors across Kobe. Or take a trip to Mount Rokko Garden Terrace, where you can breathe in the fresh alpine air, sit down for lunch in the terraced garden and enjoy magnificent sunset views of the city from the observatory deck. Discover hidden gems along the way, like the smaller shrines and historic streets that many visitors miss - but not you! Heads up - there are tons of weird, wacky and fun places hidden between the hotspots on your hit list that your host can’t wait to share with you. The only thing you have to do is tell your host what you want to do and see. That could mean strolling along the Maiko Marine Promenade on a sunny day, or crossing the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge - just be sure to look down as the floors are made of glass. You could amble up (or take a cable car) to the top of Mount Rokko, visit the Kobe Maritime Museum, or explore Chinatown, where you’ll find all manner of unusual delicacies to try!
