Kobe Port(area:KINKI/HYOGO)

Cities Spring Summer Autumn Winter

Kobe is a compact city that encompasses the mountains, urban landscapes and the sea as one of Japan’s foremost tourist city. After the port was opened to external trade, Kobe became known as a city of international commerce - a place where people from other cultures were welcome - and that period in history has left a deep impression on the city to this day. The district of Kitano and the Old Foreign Settlement still have many structures that were built as merchant offices and housing for non-Japanese, and the city is also home to Nankin Machi, one of the three largest Chinatowns in Japan. There is an exotic atomosphere that one can only experience in a port city.
One of the three most famous night views in Japan can be enjoyed from the top of Mt. Rokko, a sight known as the "10 Million Dollar Nightscape." One can visit Japan's oldest Onsen resort, Arima Onsen, which has a recorded history of over 1,000 years. Why not sample some of the world-famous Kobe Beef during your time here? Kobe sweets and confectionery are also popular items among women.
