See the best of Kobe on this full-day walking tour. You’ll learn about one of Japan’s largest cities, known for its sake and vibrant street culture. With your guide, take the train from Osaka to Kobe, where your immersive walking tour begins. You’ll spend the day walking Kobe’s historic districts and scenic waterfront parks, enjoying a Japanese and Western-style mixed buffet lunch and sampling sake.

Make your way to the Hotel Granvia Osaka, where you’ll meet your guide and fellow group members. Once you arrive in Kobe by way of a Japan Rail train, set off on foot to discover the culturally rich city of Kobe.

Head first to Old Sannomiya and then Meriken Park, a scenic stretch along the waterfront, featuring the Kobe Port Tower. Later go to the Kobe Port and enjoy a relaxing cruise followed by lunch. After lunch, stop by the historic Kitano-cho (Kitano-Ijinkan) district at the foot of the Rokko mountain range, where more than a dozen 19th-century mansions that once housed foreign diplomats are now open to the public as museums. Spend an hour perusing the ornate structures, with the mountains as the backdrop. Listen to your guide detail the history of the area as you walk to your next stop.

Later explore the area for about an hour and then set off on another Japan Rail train for Kobe’s Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, where you’ll taste traditional Japanese sake and learn how it is made. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a solid grasp on Kobe’s distinctive culture. Take the Japan Rail train back to Osaka, where you’ll arrive at approximately 5:30 pm.
