Thank you!
We had a lot of fun at our visit to the breweries with Kaoru. I personally learnt a lot about sake making, and Kaoru was very attentive as well~ She also very friendly and helpful, and gave us many recommendations on the places to visit or for meals~ I would love to come back to Kobe again soon! <3

Best part of our vacation!
Our visit to two sake breweries followed by a Kobe beef lunch was fabulous. Kay-san really opened doors for us, to the Japanese culture, sake making traditions, associated barrel making and some of the secrets of Kobe beef. We learned very much with her during our 5.5 hour tour which just flew by. I would definitely go back to Kobe and tour more with her!

awesome day
for Kaoru’s tour (Himeji Castle Tour from Kobe)
Wonderful Cruise Ship Excursion Alternative
for Kaoru’s tour (Himeji Castle Tour from Kobe)
We opted for our small group (8) excursion rather than the ship's offerings. Kaoru Tomoyoshi was our guide for our trip to visit the world heritage site of Himeji Castle from our cruise port of Kobe. She met us at the train station very close to the ship terminal. We took the Portliner line two stops to Sannomiya Station where we changed lines to Himeji. The castle was beautiful to photograph and very interesting to visit. Karou provided lots of interesting background on the history of the castle and the construction. There are a lot of steps to climb so you have to be in good shape to do it. She then took us to the very nice Koko-en garden nearby. Afterwards Karou had reserved a very special multi-course Japanese meal for us at a local restaurant where we had a private dining room. It was an excellent excursion! The only thing that could have made the day better is to have made it for the cherry blossoms but, they came early this year and we missed most of them.
A Great Guide
for Kaoru
Kaoru exceededed expectations in every way - charming, informative and delightfully responsive to advance requests concerning Kobe. She is also simply a very nice person and possesses an exemplary understanding of the English language.

I recommend her totally with confidence and affection.
