1922 – The Three Kobes are splendid value Japanese entertainers. These Japs have reputation for performing feats with hands and feet that no other troupes of  acrobats or ground tumblers ever attempt. Their scena goes with the vim that arouses the keenest enthusiasm, and is followed with breathless interest, the finale through a metal barrel pierced from without by keen, well-sharpened swords causes a positive thrill. (Aberdeen)

1923 – 3 Kobes – lively Japanese acrobatics and tumbling feats. Own elaborate full stage setting and smart costumes. Everywhere a great success. The Kobes are no bluffers.

1924 October – just returned from continent.

1925 hold the audience spellbound with their amazing and wonderful balancing feats. Juggling and balancing. Risley.
