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.

Marc and Sean turned up followed by Toru. He isn't working since leaving the bar and was telling us all about his big ideas of opening something of his own. After a few drinks we thought it was time for some dinner. Toru said he knew a good Ramen close by so we checked it out. Very different soup base from that at Ippudo, much thicker. The Gyoza and fried rice was great so I was happy.
Off to bed after dinner big day tomorrow with a trip to ...
... that the lady had made, we were then invited upstairs to see more. The upstairs room had more amazing things and in the corner we could see her work space. What an incredible place. I really enjoyed having a really good look at this hidden wonder within Osaka. After purchasing a few goods we left and headed down to send Nat off to work. I browsed some of the stores near Nat but then wondered back to her place. I wasn't alone for long, after all having such thick hair ...
... each other when either one of us understands what someone is trying to say. One thing the Japanese are great at is gesturing. Their gestures are purposeful and meaningful and they interpret the gestures of others well. Combine some thoughtful gesturing with one or two Japanese words (because, frankly, that's all I have) and the meaning can be conveyed surprisingly well.
It is here, not Tokyo or Kyoto, where I have ...
... placed known for its mechanized displays, many many restaurants and of course many other shops. There we had super super delicious Okonomiaki, which is some egg'based omelett kinda thing with veggies and sealiving creatures and other good ingredients.
Then we walked through the shopping streets and went on a high building to enjoy the view from the top. On the way there we stopped in a shop that would be probably my favorite or 2nd most ...
