Kobe Japan Travel
When you think of things you can do in Kobe, Japan, let me tell you about some of the things I have done, the places I have visited and where I have stayed. The best things we did in and around Kobe Japan were to take a trip to one of the most popular tourist areas in Kobe, Kitano, explore the old district of Kitanao and get lost in the colorful streets of Chinatown. Museum may not be high on your list, but there are many museums in Kyoto and Kobe and we really enjoyed visiting them all.
If you are considering a stopover in Kobe for your next holiday in Japan, the first question you might ask yourself is how to get there? If you are travelling abroad, it is an easy way to get to Kobe, fly to Osaka Kansai Airport and forget about it. If you are travelling to and from Kobe by train via KANSai International Airport, you can change to JR Kobe Line and use Konsai Airport with a fast service to or from Osaka Station. The Kobe subway is also useful to make a quick ride from the airport to other parts of the city such as Kitano and Kitanao.
There is also the Kobe Port Tower, a place you will probably want to visit sometime during your trip to Kobe. Walking to Harborland is an easy way to get to Meriken Park from JR Kobe Station, so you might as well experience it yourself. If you're honest, Tokyo is not that great, but it's definitely worth a visit.
Next destination of your trip to Kobe is to climb the hill to the Shin Kobe Shinkansen Station. As mentioned above, the perfect day trip starts with the departure from Kobe Station and arrival at Sannomiya Station in Kobe.
Kobe is well connected to the rest of Japan by train and can be used as a starting point for excursions to the Kansai area with the JR Pass. Shinkansen express trains come to Kobe, and there is a good connection to other major cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo - Shinjuku.
If you are already in Osaka for a few days and want to take a day trip to Kobe, it is not that easy or easy. If you are less than an hour from Osaka, it might be a good idea to settle in Kobe.
At the end of your day tour in Kobe, you will visit downtown Kobe, Kawasaki Park and Kobe Museum of Art and Design. Visit Kashiwazaki - Kawasaki Art Museum, Shibuya Art Museum and walk through Kobe Chinatown. Eat as many restaurants as you can, such as Nihonbashi Cafe, Kiyomori Cafe or Chiyotani Cafe.
Not far from Kobe is Arima Onsen, one of the most popular places in Kobe and a popular Onsek, which offers a great opportunity to relax completely and experience the "Onsen Ryokan" (Japanese culture). You can also visit the oldest Onsen city in Japan, located just outside Kobe.
Kobe is also home to the famous Kobebe Onsen, one of the most popular Onsek in Japan and a popular tourist destination in the city.
Kobe is also famous for the Arima Onsen hot springs and hosts a number of recreational and leisure facilities, such as Kobebe Onsek Park and Kobe Beach Park. The Kobe City Museum is one of the best places to learn about the history of Kobe. It is a building that originally existed as a bank and the brick warehouse is reminiscent of what Kobe looked like in the late 19th century when Kobe was a small town with a population of about 1.5 million people. The most distinctive shopping area in Kobe, however, must be the Kobe Harbourland, located at the intersection of Shibuya Street and Kiyomizu Street, just outside the city center. Notable buildings include the Kashiwazaki Tower, Shizuoka Hotel and a large shopping mall with several shopping centers and centers that compete with those in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Tokyo Dome and other major city centers.
JR Kobe Line connects Kobe, Osaka and Himeji and offers fast connections from Osaka Station to Kobe. Kobe is a great place to take Shinkansen to several of Japan's other major cities, including Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto.
The service starts in Busta Shinjuku and goes to Shibuya Mark City, then travels on the Shinkansen line to downtown and then to Kobe Station. The service will run from the station in about 10 minutes from the end of the line and will be picked up from Shibashima Station.
Passengers travelling to Kobe can see for themselves what it's like on the Shinkansen line from Shibuya Mark City to downtown Kobe. You will visit a number of monuments that celebrate the unique history of Kobe, such as the Kobe Museum of Art, Kobe City Hall and Kansai Museum.
