We moved to another hotel, Shinshuen Hotel, near the Kobe Station. Compared to Sannomiya area, this place was relatively quiet with many old fashion shops. The Hotel was also very close to Kobe's famous Harbour Land. So it was easy for us to go and explore the place.
Enjoy the pictures.

If you come to Kobe, the port kobe cruise is a must. A few selections of ships are available and we ride this daring but adorable pink pirate ship.
