I am staying in Namba prior to a cruise leaving from the Kobe cruise terminal. I am planning to take the Hanshin Namba train to Sannomiya and then the Portliner shuttle to the cruise ship. I have a few questions:
Do I need to transfer trains at Amagasaki to continue on to Sannomiya? Google Maps says to stay on the same train (no transfer required) and Hyperdia says to transfer.
Can I pay for the Hanshin Namba and the Kobe Portliner shuttle with the ICOCA card?
Thank you for your help.
