I have selected several tourism spots by which you can feel old and new Kobe.Kobe has been developed as a main port of western Japan since Meiji period as same as Yokohama in eastern Japan.You can see various old buildings used in past for foreign representatives or merchants. And in the meantime Kobe developed rapidly as a prefectural capital of Hyogo and as industrial city.

  • Our first visiti is Kitano area where there are many western style residences built mostly for early foreign settlers in Edo and Meiji period.

  • Then we visit Kobe Nunoboki herb garden.Using rope way we first climb up to the top of mountain and on the way back to the middle staion there is wide range og herb garden.

  • Back to the down town Nankin Machi(China town) will welcome you.There are so many Chinese restaurants and souvenir shops decorated ny red and yellow colored Chinese ornaments.
