Located in Hyogo Prefecture, Kobe has prospered as an international trading port. This means it has been influenced by many exotic foreign cultures over the years. It has long been known for its unique multicultural streets. If you find this kind of western style to your taste, you should come to Motomachi and the Kobe Kitano Museum to see the old foreign style houses. However, Kobe is most famous for Kobe beef. Almost everyone who comes to Kobe has to try the best steak in the world. Kobe also has beautiful scenic spots like Mount Rokkō and the Arima Onsen. Prosperous since ancient times, it exudes antique Japanese atmosphere and is a popular tourist city.
Koh Love this place. This is my second trip here and I try to make it an annual trip. The whole area is simply so relaxing and beautiful. Try their gold onsen, it's good for your skin. You can see many local Japanese old aunties travel all the way here every week for skinbeauty treatment through soaking themselves in the onsen. It's known that during the olden days, only the emperor or the royal family members can enjoy the gold onsen.
vivienvivienKobe port was one of the most important industrial and commercial ports in Japan, and it was a foreign country in the Meiji period. The Port Tower, the Ocean Museum and the Mosaic Ferris Wheel are the landmarks of the Port.
DanaI needed to separate my whole USJ experience review because I also have a lot to say about my exciting experience in the other rides of USJ other than the HP ones. I loved the Minions. Yes, I am no longer a kid, but I was still very excited to meet the life-sized minions. Their dance during the Finale show was so much fun! The Spiderman Ride was my absolute favorite because of how accurately interactively 3D it was. The hollwood dream ride was also fun. They have both front-faced and backdrop for the Hollywood Dream ride. I think the Backdrop one is more challenging than the one we tried. I especially enjoyed the Shark ride as well. Overall, USJ made me geniunely happy in 1 day. I basically forgot all of my problems that day, and that's thanks to USJ. ♥️
Koh I love Kitano area. It's so nice and artzy to wak around. The East meets West old building made me spent almost the whole day exploring this area. I've found some wonderful café and restaurant for my meal too. It's an unforgettable sweet memory for me.
GLS***66Mt. Rokko stands 931 meters above sea level, and is one of the most popular places for outdoor activities in all of Kansai. It's one of the few mountains in the world that has over 100 hiking courses, so of course, many people travel from all over to hike there. Paths are all clearly marked with signs (in Japanese only, but some have photos to help you out) and you can choose from a variety of shorter or very long hikes great for all different fitness levels.
Koh Lots of food.. The famous award winning Japanese milk pudding is just right at the entrance of China Town Kobe.. smooth, creamy and there's a layer of brown sugar syrup at the bottom. I personally prefer it without the brown sugar syrup. Frankly speaking, the Isuzu bakery award winning mini cream bun with burned orange slice caramelize topping is cheaper and taste much better than this pudding in China Town.

I loved the bird section and the smaller animals. It was great the way they were able to move around freely and unrestrained by cages. This provided a great learning opportunity for children and they all loved the petting area and the shows that the keepers arranged. A great place where you can meet and interact with animals. Special cuddling section included. Interesting programme during the day, and many species very well mixed together. Seems like people running the place really love animals, and that they are happy :)
We stumbled on this area when looking to fine the RWC fan park.
One thing I thought I wanted to feel and experience in Japan was a small tremor, however seeing the relics of the destruction here and the exhibits I think I'm glad I didn't.
It's quite jaw dropping to see some of the devastation and seeing the area which has been left as a reminder is quite thought provoking.
This area would be easy to miss, but is well worth seeking out and having a peaceful reflection for an hour.
It is a true site preserved with an exhibit showcasing what happened during the earthquake and the result which impacted the citizens lifestyle. Worth sparing abit of time for a brief visit.
A really good little museum. As Kawasaki is one of the most important Japanese companies that existed through the Meiji restoration, World War 2 and up to the modern era, this museum is also a history of modern Japan itself. It's also very important to the port of Kobe where Kawasaki is a large company.
There is plenty to fascinate history buffs, those interested in engineering, and of course there are the motorbikes which are just cool by themselves :)
We were able to appreciate how Kawasaki has evolved through the years and how they shaped the technologies we have today. The museum is also interactive and very interesting.
We try to visit maritime museums whenever we are in a city/town that has one. We were pleased to learn the Kobe Maritime Museum is easy to get to, thanks to the hop-on-off City Lop Bus. Stop 16, Meriken Park.
The swirling white lattice of metal that surrounds the building outside represents the sea or perhaps sails. Either way, it's attractive. Dozens of intricate model ships are featured. A brochure tells you the museum is divided into two themes: 'The port of Kobe present and future', and 'The port of Kobe through History'. The sea, ships and port of yesterday, today and tomorrow are all recreated.
We saved a bit of money by paying 1,000 yen for a ticket that allowed entry into the Maritime Museum, Kawasaki Good Times Word - in the same building - and the Port Tower, metres away. Good value!
We spent about three hours in the area and recommend its attractions.
An iconic statue from Kobe based on manga series written by Yokoyama san located near Shin-Nagata station. Tetsujin 28-Go Stands as a center piece in Nagata Ward to reawaken the town spirit after the Great Hanshin earyhquake that took away more than 6,000 lives. Based on the comic figure created by Mitsuteru Yokohama, a native of Kobe, Tetsujin 28 was finished in 2009 and is good for a stop-over on the way to other destination. Its gigantic body looks very friendly and keeps all passer-by high hope for the future secured happy life. Its a little out of the main Kobe tourist areas, but If you grew up watching Gigantor (that giant blue robot) cartoons on TV, this is a place you must visit to rediscover that child in you.
