Kobe

Upon my, "I would like to be near the ocean" request, my aunt took us to Kobe via a ~20min shinkansen ride. Kobe is a large city that houses 1.5 million, yet feels like a quaint little ocean side town. Swimming isn't allowed, but after being landlocked for so long (Harbin and Osaka are not costal cities), it truly was nice to just be by the seaside. We spent the day walking along the coastline and through the city.
