Spend a day out of Osaka exploring the natural wonders surrounding Kobe. Take a scenic cable car up Mount Rokko, where you step into the lush, floral landscapes of the Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden. Later, visit the hot springs at Arima Onsen and soak in the therapeutic waters of their baths.

After morning pickup from your hotel in Osaka, drive west to the modern city of Kobe. An expert guide takes you to the foot of Mount Rokko, a 3,054-foot (931-m) mountain that provides a lush backdrop to the city. Here, board a funicular cable car and make a smooth ascent up the slopes, admiring views of the city as it shrinks below you. At the top of the mountain, step out to find the Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden. Take a walk among paths lined with a rainbow of blossoming alpine flowers and vibrant trees like the Japanese maple.

Descend the mountain with your guide and head to Arima Onsen, one of the oldest hot spring towns in Japan. Take lunch at your own expense before heading for the famous hot springs. Feel your worries melt away as you sink into the bubbling, therapeutic waters for a long soak. Visit both indoor and outdoor baths for a change in scenery, and take advantage of saunas and lounge areas ideal for relaxing. At the end of the day, return to your hotel in Osaka feeling completely refreshed.

Our guide was more than accommodating, adjusted aspects of the trip to suit our family. Even dropped us off at Dontobori on the way home - gave us some brilliant tips on the fish market, American village. Cheers to Levi & Kevin!

Guide went above and beyond to show us what we wanted to see. Great to have someone who could explain the history of what we were seeing

Our tour leader-Mr.Levy is very good in Kobe historical information, as well very friendly with full service mind. He showed us many interesting places and took us to a local local sushi restaurant where we never be able to go by ourselves. The Onsen place is proper and beautifully hosting. Will definitely introduce friends to this private tour.
