We stayed in the b Kobe for one night and stayed in twin and single rooms. The hotel rooms are sized similar to most budget hotels in Japan - not the most spacious but sufficient for a night's sleep. For the price we paid, we found the hotel to be of great value. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hotel was located in the center of town (within walking distance to all the shopping streets and the harbor front). The only slight setbacks were that there was no wifi in the rooms (it was however offered complimentary in the lobby along with freshly brewed coffee) and the bathrooms appeared a little dated. I would stay there again.

Opposite the station was a unexpected gem of a temple so that got a visit too before hopping back on the train to head off to our next stop... ...
When we got to Osaka we noticed straight away that it seems a lot more run down than the rest of Japan that we'd seen. Saying that we found it to Be really friendly, have a great nightlife and some really interesting, cheaper places to eat. Staying in Hotel Taiyo in Dontonburi which, despite its pretty sterile appearance, we found great. It was in a great spot for everything we wanted to see. The first day we explored our local ...
Osaka Castle’s 5 story Pagoda or Donjon had been rebuilt in 1931 to replicate the original building and was constructed of ferro concrete. As the castle is not a working castle it has been set up to house and viewing platform and museum. You were allowed to go up the lift to Floor 5 then walk up to Floor 8 to the viewing platform that gave views across Osaka. You were then expected to walk down (unless you had a ...
