Kobe In A Day: What To Do And Eat In Kobe | Japan Travel Guide

  • Опубликовано: 18 мар 2017
  • 1 day Japan travel itinerary guide on what to do and eat in Kobe. Kobe offers much much more than just Kobe Beef!
    Kobe is under an hour away from Kyoto and Osaka, so it makes the perfect day trip as well.
    Kobe is very well known for their famous Kobe Beef, however this city has much more to offer than just that. In this video let me show you how to travel around Kobe efficiently and visit the must see places in just one day.
    1 day in Kobe is enough to see the main areas of the city, however if you want to do more activities like hiking, going to the onsen or more hands on cultural experiences then a few days would be better.
    Also, If you have more days to spend here then I definitely recommend checking out more of the local areas and back streets!!!
    Things to do in Kobe city, Japan:
    JR Shin-Kobe Station
    Shin-Kobe Ropeway
    Nunobiki Waterfall
    Nunobiki Herb Gardens
    Kitano District (Ijinkan foreign residents houses)
    Sannomiya Station
    Steakland Kobe Beef
    Nankinmachi Kobe China Town
    Meriken Park
    Kobe Great Hanshin Earthquake Memorial Park
    Kobe Maritime Museum
    Kobe Port Tower
    Kobe Harborland
    Kobe Cruising
    Mosaic Shopping Mall
    Kobe City Hall 24th Floor Free View

    I live in Kobe and make occasional videos too! One of my favorite parts of Kobe is visiting the animal pasture on Rokko Mountain. You need to either hike up to it or take one of the many buses but it's a fun alternative to what can be a busy afternoon in downtown kobe.

    We were staying in Obayashi on three trips to Japan. On rest days we would take the train "into town" to get a Wifi connection at the Starbucks next to Chinatown. Great city. The walk from Shinkobe station to Nunobiki waterfall is well worth doing.

    I live in Kobe now, and I tell everyone who visits that Kobe is the "one day city." Everything can be seen/done in a single day haha. Also, I call that Starbucks in Kitano the "Harry Potter Starbucks" because the inside of it reminds me of the Hogwarts Gryfindor common room!

    120$ for a shinkansen ride is so expensive for us over here. I was lucky to have that bullet train pass for tourists when i went there but it was still expensive :/
    In Europe you can fly around to a far city for less. I think that transportation in Japan is very expensive compared to here in Europe

    The one hour hike up to the herb gardens was really nice! Good exercise and you get to be really close to the waterfall. Unfortunately, I didn't do enough research ahead of time because we went in the afternoon and by the time we got to the top, the garden and ropeway was closed.
    I went to a restaurant near Kobe station I think for Kobe beef. Found the restaurant by chance. It was around 10000 yen for a dinner set that came with an appetizer, salad, beef main course with rice, and dessert. It was so delicious!
