Fantastic local guide in Kobe

We were delayed getting off our cruise in the Port of Kobe and Chuji was patiently waiting for us. He was very knowledgeable of the area and sights that we saw. We covered a lot of ground and moved quickly because of the delay in getting off the ship. He was also willing to adapt our pre arranged schedule to help us find a shop that sold good quality knives at reasonable prices. We enjoyed our time with him and would highly recommend him to anyone. For reference our party consisted of 4 adults and one teenager. Thank you Triplelights for connecting us to a fantastic guide. Thank you Chuji
