Took the port bus into town and then bought day pass on the city loop bus. Excellent value. Visited the famous falls and a bunch of other sites.

There is not so much to ein Kobe itself, you can easily walk through the city and you should for sure have some Kobe Beef. From Kobe you can do excursions by train to Osaka or to Kyoto. Train System is very efficient in Japan, and it is pretty easy to find your way and to buy tickets at the ticket machine. There is always somewhere a plan in English, look for the station number where you want to go to, enter the number in the machine (after selecting English as language) pay by cash and get your ticket. You have to enter the ticket to get to the platform (signs are in English as well and Japanese people are very friendly and helpful) and you have to enter the ticket again to leave the platform at your destination. If you made a mistake and got a wrong ticket, the gate will ask you to pay additional money, there are machines where you can pay the difference. Sound much more complicated as it is. Just remember which station you started, so you’ll find your way back. Read Less

Good tour which took us back to our favorite city in Japan, Kyoto. We also tried Kobe beef in Kobe.

It was very difficult to tell with Kobe as the 1st day we had planned to travel to Kyoto but immigration took so long that we never got the chance and the queue for the shuttle bus and portliner metro was so long that I had to return to the ship as I can't stand for an decent amount of time. The 2nd day in Kobe it poured with rain so again our plans were totally ruined. I'm sure it's a great place to visit but I remember it most clearly as the port where I nipped off the ship late at night and did my washing at one of the local laundrettes. Read Less
