I used this service in Kobe. A completely pointless service. Very few stops. And service finishes by 18:30! And importantly the announcer speaks ONLY in Japanese!!!! This service is for tourists and yet she only speaks Japanese. None of The staff speak any English! Clearly...More

This small bus is like a little single decker tram. The seats are tiny and the leg room hardly exists. Very cheap way to get around though. We started off at Chinatown with four others but after a couple of stops the bus was full...More

For 210 yen (after 50 yen discount for tourists), the city loop bus is a convenient way of going around the city. A commentator on board the bus spoke only in the local language. I took about an hour to complete the loop. The buses...More

The city loop bus is a very efficient way to cover the major areas of Kobe, especially if you only have a day or two to explore. I suggest to look up the route beforehand (available online on their website) and plan which stops you'd...More

It is indeed a good way to go around the main tourist spots with the day pass, however, I would not recommend using it on a weekend or public holiday. I had a rather terrible experience using their service on the past Sunday. Fair enough...More

It is the best way to tour around the most popular tour spots with this City Loop. The hop-on and hop-off stops are located where walking would be minimal. The one-day bus pass made it even better because you could ride on the bus until...More

We have only very limited time to spend in Kobe, precisely, about 5 hours. It is a unforgettable tour as the bus stops exactly at all prime location for tourist. Furthermore, the frequency of bus is adequate, just you have to avoid some hot spots...More

Unfortunately no. We didn't visit any of the sake breweries but other contributors have covered this area well. They appear to be a short train ride from Sannomiya Station. Enjoy.
