Hello all again. I have another question for everyone. My husband is going to have his birthday on Sunday 18th December. It will be our last day in Osaka before flying to Helsinki, the next morning. I would like to make the day a little special for him. I know Hemiji Castle is under renovation so I dont think this would be on the agenda. I had thought of Kobe, but am not sure what there is to see, any help here? Otherwise any other suggestions to a day trip from Osaka (not Kyoto or Nara as we are doing that on the return journey). We both love history and museums, but am open to scenic views with good local food and other suggestions that may be a quick trip from Osaka. Thanks to all who have answered questions before and thanks again for this time.
