Must see is the Nunobiki Falls. If the herb garden is not what you need to see, great option is take ropeway to midstation (1/2 price) and walk down the hiking trail. Great view and lots of photo ops along the trail. ...

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 ...

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 ...

Take the subway and go to the Nunobiki ropeway and herb gardens. Good views of the city. Walk down to middle station and admire the beautiful gardens and glasshouses on your way down near the port: Meriken park and area dedicated to the earthquake ...
