Hello! My name is Natsuko. Thank you for visiting my page. I used to work for a trading company, which gave me the opportunity to use English with overseas business partners. After leaving the company, I became an English teacher for children and I discovered that I really enjoy spending time with kids. I also had the experience of being a host family for international students, and it was so fulfilling to show them around various tourist spots and see them happy. I hope you can have a wonderful experience in Japan too! Would you like to join one of my fun tours? I look forward to seeing you again!

Paseo por Kobe, ciudad moderna con el paisaje del mar

Hyogo

Me gustaría ofrecerle un tour agradable para visitar Kobe. Desde la estación de Sannomiya, vamos a empezar el paseo. Primero vamos a comprar el boleto de "loop bus"(JPY660), y ya podemos pasear por la ciudad cómodamente ! 1) Primero visitamos "Kobe Ijinkan" (residencia de los extranjeros). en total hay 18 residencias de extranjeros como Holandes, Italianos etc. En el siglo 19 vinieron personas de varios países a Kobe para tratar empezar negocio internacional. Cada residencia nos enseña su estilo de la vida en esa época y muy interesante visitarlas. 2) En los edificios, está "Uroko No Ie" en el centro. (casa de "escama") Las piedras naturales que cubren el edificio se parecen a las escamas de la pez, entonces se llama así. Podemos ver el estilo muy bonito y las coleccíones de porcelanatos occidentales como "Royal Copenhagen", maissen" etc. 3) Después de ver tantos edificios y paseo, ya hora de comer. Kobe se come muy bien "carne de Kobe", y hay muchos restaurantes especiales (cuesta JPY3,000 - 5,000). Pero también hay comida "Teppan Yaki" (comida a la plancha). Hoy les recomiendo en el restaurante "Steak Land", allá podemos comer carne de Kobe a la plancha ! Delicioso !! 4) Después de comer, tenemos que hacer ejercicio un poco ! Caminando, o si ya muy cansado, yendo en Loop Bus, vamos a llegar a la área de Harbar Land y MOSAIC (centro comerciales de Kobe). 5) Cada 30 minutos el crucero turístico (barco para los turistas) salen desde el puerto, entonces podemos sentirse "mar" y relajarse durante su navegación. 6) Ya nos relajamos, entonces vamos a pasear por Harbar Land - MOSAIC para hacer compras, tomar café, comer nieve etc.. 7) Ya hemos gozado la ciudad Kobe ! Vamos a regresar a su lugar con muchas experiencias divertidas y muchos recuerdos !

Private Tour to Hello Kitty Smile Awaji Island

Had a great day with Natsuko whom is very good with kids. Traveled with a party of 4 adults and two toddlers and Natsuko was amazing singing nursery songs and helping us find formula. Had an amazing time at Hello Kitty Smile allowing us to go back to shop more at Hello Kitty Smile and Apple. Kept us on schedule, held one of my infants to sleep on the bus. Also reached out to bus company as I lost my diaper bag on the bus. Really a fantastic time especially since we took public transportation where as Natsuko normally drives to Awaji island

Wilson L.

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have your lovely family join the Awaji Island tour. I had a great time singing songs and taking care of your adorable twin children. It was delightful to see your wife enjoy interacting with Hello Kitty, shopping, and participating in the stamp rally. You truly value your family, and I appreciate how kindly you treated me as your guide. Please come visit Japan again. I am grateful for choosing me as your tour guide. Thank you so much.
