Kobe, Japan The Shopping Arcade
This is only the beginning of my day in Kobe. What do you think so far? I was already sold from the moment I stepped in the shopping arcade. There are of course, many more photos to be viewed!
I went to Kobe by highway bus from Nagoya. I could have taken the Shinkansen which would have been much easier and faster, but much more expensive! The highway bus took about 3 hours from Nagoya, but only cost 5,500 yen round trip. A round trip ticket by Shinkansen is 15,000 yen, but only takes about 1 or 1.5 hours to get to Kobe. You will have to decide which is better for you. I had a great travel companion so the 3 hours was no problem (Thank you Makiko!!)
