    ... We protested to the attendant who told us we are guaranteed a seat not luggage space, and said she’s find a space for Carol’s. (She did, above seat 5, so her bag traveled First Class.) The man, part of an aggressive pair on many of our excursions (the woman was always rushing to the front for her photos, so we had to wait until got out of the way) calmly took his seat in row 21.

    ... leaving our bags in the lobby all day, then a check-in to the double room this afternoon. Annoying, but only a minor inconvenience.

    After a fairly dull (and late) breakfast we left the hotel at around 10am to do some exploring of Kobe.
