I will be travelling to Kobe, Japan beginning of June for a 2 week business trip with some colleagues from US and Germany. Since it is our first time there we would like to go for some sightseeing on the we - in addition to Kobe Kyoto is already on our list. Will be staying at Crowne in Kobe. Interested in receiving any general recommendation on where to eat/shop/what to see - in Kobe & around. Prices, 'good to know' infos, transportation tips etc. would be much appreciated, especially:
- How to get from Kansai airport to Crowne? I know there is a bus, but is it easy to find? None of us speaks Japanese unfortunately.
- Last night will be spending in Osaka - any Hotel recommendations close to the Airport?
- Where to buy moderate price gifts in Kobe and Kyoto?
- How to get to Kyoto?
I know a lot has been adressed already, and I am trying to read myself through the earlier posts, but thought maybe you would have some time to answer. Much appreciated in advance!
