... to come out-and together! We were the first to leave the baggage area. Another miracle!
Carol called, as instructed, to Red Tie, the transportation service we contracted with for the trip to and from SFO. He was there within a few minutes. The trip home was fast and easy. And here we are: HOME AGAIN!
We hope to return to Almanor ASAP. I have a minor medical issue that must be dealt with in Oakland once a week, starting tomorrow, for six ...
... we paid a visit to the awe-inspiring Umeda Sky Building. At 173 meters, the twin towers are not quite Japan’s tallest structures, but the floating garden observatory (we didn't see a garden or anything floating?), spanning the tops of the buildings provides a 360° view of the city. DH was greatly disappointed that there was no outside walkway that would allow for a repeat of her Auckland Tower walk.
We also managed a day trip to Himejii Castle which ...
... a full grown cat but the kitten has been great. The pet shop has a full grown cat that is
beautiful and it’s been there since we’ve been in China but they want 3000 kuai
which is about $450 as it is a special breed.
Fortunately they are kinder to this cat but it has lived in a cage for
months. Our kitten, now named Mustard,

... fill in some time before lunch, we emerged from the shopping centre on the harbor side, to what appeared to be a kiddie amusement park. Ferris wheel, and roller coaster, merry-go-rounds, and a few other rides dotted the park. My girls, with their Disneyland experiences still fresh in their memories, wanted to ride the rollercoaster.

TravelPod Member Reviewsthe b Kobe
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.
