Routes to Kobe University
1. Take a taxi from Shin-Kobe (Shinkansen-Line) to "Kobe-Dai Bungakubu".  
   Takes 15 min.
2. Take a bus for "Tsurukabuto Danchi" (#36) from JR Rokkomichi Station 
   (30 min. by the rapid service train from Shikansen's Shin-Osaka Station). 
   Get off at "Kobe-Dai Bun-Ri-No-Gakubu-Mae."
3. Take a bus for "Tsurukabuto Danchi" (#36) from Hankyu Rokko Station
   (30 min. by the train from Hankyu Umeda).  
   Get off at "Kobe-Dai Bun-Ri-No-Gakubu-Mae."
4. It is a ten minutes' walk from Hankyuu Rokko Station, but you need a guy
   who knows the puzzling route ;-)

Faculty of Letters can be found on your front as you walk through the gate by
the Kobe-Dai Bun-Ri-No-Gakubu Mae stop to the rotary.  Takigawa Memorial Hall
is next to it to the southwest.
