Kobe port is beautiful spot with symbolic landmarks.And It's nice to get a sight from sea ! There are 40 mins short bay cruise tours.
Cruising Cafe Fantasy
Me and my boy friend rode this cute cruiser - Fantasy .It is called "Cruising Cafe". The interior is like cozy cafe!
There are souvenir shop and cafe shop.(On the table, you'll find Menu book!) You can order drinks and snacks :-)
If your visiting is in the mild weather season, the deck seat is also nice! You can enjoy fresh air and sea breeze~
This is 1st floor of Fantasy. It's not cafe style. :-( But you can watch the scenery from the wide window calmly.
Scenery from the cruiser
Mosaic(seaside shopping mall) and a ferris wheel.
The Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge. The longest suspension bridge in the world.
Kobe air port.
※Scenery guide announcement is available only in Japanese.Watch everyone watching~
How to ride the cruiser
This is the terminal KAMOMERIA. You can get the cruising ticket at here ! (advance reservations not required)
It is located next to Kobe port tower.
Ticket counter inside of KAMOMERIA.
There are 2 cruiser company.
Kobe bay cruise : Ocean prince / Royal princess
Kobe sea bus : Fantasy
In my opinion, the big difference is visual and interior of cruiser.(Check out from the link on cruiser name) The price difference is only 100 yen. The time required is almost same 40 mins and almost same route.
Choose by your cruiser favor or the next departure time.(Each cruisers departs every hour)
Yay! I got tickets~
In front of KAMOMERIA is cruiser landing place.You have to be there 15 mins before the departure time.
Next to the ticket counter, there is commemorative stamps of KAMOMERIA ! Please don't miss it ;-)
Have a nice trip~
