Enjoy a Spectacular View of the Coastal City of Kobe!

Explore the charm of Kobe. The world's longest bridge, observatory deck overlooking Seto Sea, and a fishing port with fresh fish!

Kobe is famous as one of the major cities in the Kansai region. 
Did you know that you can also enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery that has been featured in international guidebooks?
The area around Akashi Kaikyo, just a 30-minute train ride from the center of Kobe, is full of special spots that only the locals know about.

The people of this area have lived with the sea for a long time, hence maritime transportation was crucial for their lives.
The city has also historically attracted many tourists, as the view of the Akashi Strait from the coast has appeared in many of Japan's most famous literary works.

In this tour, we will introduce you to such places where you can enjoy the scenery and life along the coast of Kobe!

The highlight of the tour is the spectacular view of the Akashi Strait. You can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the straits from various angles: from the world's longest suspension bridge, from the observatory on top of the mountain, and the ancient tombs along the coast. 

You can also stop by a shopping street near Kobe's major fishing ports and taste the fresh local seafood. In addition, there are many restaurants in the shopping district that are popular among the locals, and our guide will show you the best places to eat. In addition, you will visit a temple that has been worshipped for over 1,000 years.

This plan is for those who want to enjoy the charm of the Seto Inland Sea as well as the central city of Kobe!
