Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Himeji Castle as well as Sakuramasamune Kinenkan Sakuraen. Kick off your visit on the 8th (Fri): step into the grandiose world of Himeji Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ikuta Shrine, wander the streets of Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown), enjoy breathtaking views from Kobe Port Tower, then get a taste of the local shopping with Kobe Harborland, and finally make a trip to Sannomiya Center Gai Shopping Street.
