Took the Osaka on your own excursion. 1 hour on the bus to Osaka. Osaka was the highlight of the whole trip. So much shopping and food! I know others said Kobe was just ok, so choose to go to Osaka!

Arrived here at the end of our Princess Cruise. Could not get into our hotel room until 3pm so we went off to explore the town. We took the City Loop Bus. A day pass cost us Y660. You can get on and off as many times as you like. We got off at stop 11 and headed up the Kobe Nunobiki Ropeway (a cable car). This cost us Y950 each for a one way ticket. This took us up to the Kobe Herb garden. This was fantastic. The gardens were fantastic. The food and drink in the gardens is VERY expensive. We then walked down the path to the bottom of the hill past the Nunobiki Falls. There is a small very traditional cafe just before the falls. We wished we had waited until we got here to eat the prices were very reasonable. We came out at the Shinkobe train station which had a City Loop bus stop. A great day. Other notable stops included China Town and various shopping streets.
Overnight here, no excursion booked, Shuttle to city and took hop on hop off bus, Chinatown and shopping mall.

Not that nice a port, too much emphasis was given to the shopping area, which is not that interesting a place to visit, and the food was very disappointing
