We are spending a few days in Oaska before a cruise on the Volendam departing Kobe Port on April 1, and will be making our way to the port on our own -. I need to know which terminal to show up at. David
I will arrive into Kobe on April 28, 2013 aboard the Celebrity Millennium cruise ship. I believe that we will dock at pier 4 (where the Port Liner runs) but I have not been able to confirm this. Our first destination is the Kobe Nunobiki Herb Garden & Ropeway (my wife is an herb Gardner). What is the best way to get from the port to Nunobiki Herb Garden? Train? Taxi? what?
I am flying to Osaka in March for a one month visit to Japan. I am leaving by ship from Kobe and would like to store a suitcase with dress clothes in the Osaka/Kobe region that I can retrieve for my trip home. Does the port passenger terminal offer long term baggage storage? Or train station beyond a few days? I don't really care where, I just don't want to haul around a large unneeded suitcase for one month. Thank you

My friend has a tattoo that's too big to cover up. We were warned that certain onsen throughout Japan will prohibit his entrance. Have any of you had experience with this in Kinosaki? I really want to go there but if he's not allowed in the Onsen, there's no point.
