It took till after noon to get through Japanese Customs which was just ridiculous. We had planned to take the train to Kyoto but didn't have enough time by the time we got through customs. We walked to the Earthquake/Tsunami Disaster Museum which turned out to be just absolutely excellent! Highly recommend that to anyone. Read Less

Kobe is very accessible. It's great to walk around the downtown and China Town areas. We also took a 30 minute subway-train ride to charming mountain village which is a spa-town where local crafts abound.

One needs much more time to visit Kyoto, Nara and the surrounding places. The boat did not use the beautiful Japanese Inland Sea but rather the open ocean. I guess, they did that to be able to open the on bord gamabeling casino

We travelled independently from the port of Kobe to Kyoto, which is inland about an hour by train. You need some nerve and experience to do this on your own as the train stations can be intimidating. The machines to buy the tickets do have an English option, however. Kyoto is many, many temples being the original capital of Japan and our best stop of the cruise. It was exceedingly hot and humid (in August) and I almost got heat stroke so be forewarned. Read Less

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
