How do I stumbled upon Kobe Airport Marine Air Japan? I stayed at Kobe last year for a change. I landed at Kansai Airport and took the ferry to Kobe which coincidentally stopped at Kobe Airport Marine Air.

First things first, ditch the airplane stress. Head to the observation deck on the third floor and soak in the breathtaking panorama. The cityscape of Kobe unfolds before you, with the bustling port and the majestic Rokko mountains framing the scene. It’s the perfect spot to capture some envy-inducing travel photos.

Since I was passing by, it didn’t go for the breathtaking view on third floor but believe it or not, this airport is pretty busy for a domestic airport.

I took the Port Liner to the city and it is a monorail. It is a brisk ride and you can actually enjoy the view of the Kobe Airport Marine Air as well as the Kobe City in Japan.
