Hi guys,

Flying to Tokyo April 6th and making my way down to Osaka to get the ferry to China. The only problem is, the date I need to get to China is the date that the ferry is out of service due to maintenance!

I have read that there is another ferry that goes from Kobe to Beijing that is sailing the time I need to leave! Has anyone used this before and is it ok? The website that I was looking at is pretty much set up for Japanese more than western so its a bit vague!

Also has anyone got a train from Tokyo to Osaka recently and how long does it take for the cheapest price?

Thanks in advance!

My British friend went to Kobe from Tianjin, a city very close to Beijing.
