Hyogo_Amagasaki city

I am an English guide in charge of
Amagasaki city.


Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.


7 temples visiting for 7 gods of good fortune and enjoying local shopping avenue in Amagasaki city

Amagasaki city is convenient city close from all tourist site in Kansai area and really energetic city!

In 1617, Amagasaki castle was constructed and many temples were built around the castle. At present, there are still eleven temples around here. (Unfortunately, Amagasaki castle was damaged during war and burned.)

For this tour, we will visit 7 temples to worship gods of good fortune and collect the stamps on original firm paper to get 7 gods fortune for your future. Each 7 gods has their own lucky gain and character.

After visiting temples and  walking around calm and silent traditional temple town, we will go to active and vigorous local downtown shopping avenue!

This local avenue is very famous for big fan of one of very popular baseball team in kansai area.

We can walk, see around and feel Japanese-Kansai like downtown atmosphere.
























My personal information


  I used to live in New Zealand, the city of  Auckland. Auckland was beautiful city with sea, specially yacht harbor and low hills with sheep. I felt New Zealander were enjoying comfortable and affluent daily lives. Here, Amagasaki city where I live now is not like Auckland, it is not scenic, but it is interesting city.

It is a city for everyday people. You can feel peaceful ordinary daily life of Japanese. But also you can feel typical Japan-like serene hush of sacred temples of old time and energetic down town market atmosphere for a short time. It is not like big popular tourist spot. It is not in your guide book. But if you like walking around and would like to feel what it is in Japan, I’m sure you will like it.

Thank you.
