At SPARK, a bicycle shop in Sannomiya specializing in mountain bikes, local English language tour guides who know everything there is to know about Kobe plan and sell bicycle tours that can only be experienced here. This course will take you through the back streets, eat lunch at a restaurant that only a local would know, and visit Kobe's hidden hot spots. Take this 4-hour tour and get treated to sights you wouldn't see unless you lived here for ten years. The shop designs a variety of other courses too, such as visiting worship facilities representing seven of the world's religions all concentrated in Kobe, a tour focused on confectionery and architecture, or perhaps a mountain tour running through the back hills by bike, or even a 180 km long stride around Awaji Island across the sea. Why? Because they know Kobe and they know how to have fun.
