What to Expect
You will visit Himeji Castle first and then have a casual local lunch there.
On the way back to Osaka/Kyoto, you'll stroll around in Kobe where you can feel an exotic old town atmosphere and enjoy the city view from Nunobiki Herb Garden while walking thru the beautiful garden park.
We will also visit the new and popular "BE KOBE" monument with others on the way to Harborland.
Harborland is known as the best spot for Kobe harbor night view with a street of various types of restaurants and few shopping malls. I recommend having a nice dinner such as Kobe beef in this area after the tour.
With additional hours, you can also choose to enjoy Hanshin Tigers baseball game at Koshien stadium - which could be most entertaining experience for you in Japan with the fans known as most exciting and energetic of all the 12 professional teams in Japan. (only during the baseball season)
This is a good tour for those who got "templed-out" in Kyoto and traveling long enough in Japan to see more modern side of Japan : )
