Kobe Shore Excursions, Day Tours & Trips for Cruise Passengers

Locating on a hillside overlooking the sea surrounding Honsu Island, Kobe is one of the most popular port-city in Japan. This city is home to hills and narrow winding roads that creating a breathtaking natural backdrop for the city skyline. Just 30 minutes by train from Kobe port to Osaka, travelers can hop on Kobe shore excursions to visit many cultural cities including Osaka, Himeji, Nara, and especially the former capital Kyoto. Same as the rest of Japan, the best time to visit Kobe and cities nearby is in spring and autumn. The perfect weather during this time with mild temperature and lack of rain help creating fantastic experiences. On the other hand, Kobe is hot and humid during summer, and coldly covered with snow in winter.

Take a first step to the city, you can see an iconic landmark, 108-meter high Kobe Port Tower. The tower shines brightly against the illuminated skyline at night, offering a sensational rooftop-panoramic view over the city. Best attractions to visit in shore excursions to Kobe, Kyoto, Osaka, Himeji, and Nara are:

  • Himeji Castle – the most elegant castle in Japan with a perfect white appearance
  • Kinkakuji Temple – the Golden Pavilion
  • Nijo-Jo Castle – the residence of the first shogun from the Edo Period
  • Kiyomizu-Dera Temple – Pure Water Temple
