What you'll do

You can have a great experience with this cycling. Because this tour is hidden sightseeing in Kobe city. Actually, Kobe has a lot of old shrines and temples. We visit the eight shrines in it. From ancient times, The local peaple say that visiting the eight shrines in Kobe will be healthy, peacefull and protects us from evil. But, almost tourests do not know this pilgrimage and those shrines. Those shrines are very historical and their origins are said to be 1700years ago. I take you pilgrimaging to them, and cycling through the local town. It is a electric assist bicycle to use this time. We visit Ichinomiya Shrine to Shichinomiya Shrine, and I explan each shrine. So you get a stamp book to record what you visit each shrine. It will be a treasure and a wonderful souvenir. I will offer you what you can not experience elsewhere. If it is much rain, we will use bus and subway(metro). If you want to be somewhere, tell me a few days ago. Look at Twitter @YuTam11371632 Instagram yushiro_ta
