I liked this station. We traveled from Kyoto to here and left from here to Osaka. I found that the direction was easily found than Osaka & Kyoto station. We found small cafe for breakfast and it was priced reasonable too.

Similar as most stations in Japan, Kobe is the main station of Kobe city. Shinkansen stop by this station if you are travelling along Tokyo and Osaka route. Clean and convenient.
