Today was fabulous! What a wonderful way to spend a birthday. First of all the sun came out and we were able to sit in the sun by the pool as we sailed toward Kobe Japan. We arrived into Kobe around 3:00 p.m. and my friends and I set out for a late day adventure. First we headed uo to Mt Rokko via cable car. The views were simply magnificent. We stayed up there a while and then headed for Chinatown. It was a lovely evening capped off by a delicious meal. Nice birthday!
