Day By Day: 1936

Saturday, May 16th: The “distinguished passengers” arrive in Kobe

South China Morning Post, May 26, 1936

The Chaplin party arrived aboard the SS President Coolidge, not the Kashima Maru, as stated in the article. They will proceed to Yokohama following a short, one-day side trip to Kyoto. I’ll have more on that tomorrow. This visit was their second to Japan during this tour. They made a very brief stop in Yokohama and Tokyo back in March.

Chaplin paid his first visit to Kobe almost exactly four years before on May 14th, 1932.
