A night view of Naka Pier, Kobe, Japan, on 27th January 2014. Alongside (though still showing "steaming" lights) is Yusen Cruises' 'Asuka II' (see other pictures). At left is the Meriken Park Oriental Hotel; boarding for passenger ships is done through the bottom 2 floors of the building. At right are the lit-up cranes of Kawasaki H.I.'s shipyard & in the distance are the approach lights for Kobe city Airport.
