I have searched the forums but have not found the answer suitable for me.
Arriving Cunard 19th March into Kobe. Have flight from Kansai at 9pm the same evening as arrival. Cunard not doing any airport transfers that i have found, have asked Cunard no reply so far. Tried to book a shuttle with TK shuttle but they no longer allow you to set a time for pick-up or even an hour and will only allow you book a shuttle from the port if you have a Japanese land line telephone as they can call you on the previous evening to inform you of the time for pick-up. A little crazy that, I think.
They did offer to do us a metered taxi which of course will be $250 - $350 US, a little expensive I feel. I hate being ripped off, with the tag "how to fleece a tourist".
Any local ideas would be helpful, I have found the option of going to a nearby station by taxi and then catching a shuttle bus to Kobe Airport and then taking another shuttle bus from there. Is there not a more direct route, as lugging two suitcases and carrying hand luggage is not going to be an easy option after a long cruise.
