Dedicated foodies will cross oceans for a meal of well-marbled Kobe beef cooked just right. Between meals, don’t miss Kobe’s many museums, like the meticulously curated Kobe City Museum in Chinatown. If you’ve ever wondered how sake is made (or you just want to ask for samples) find out at Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum. Then, leave the high-rises behind at Nunobiki Falls near Hakutsuru and head further inland for hiking and photo-worthy views of Mount Rokko. As night falls, set your sights on the colourful lights of the iconic Kobe Port Tower before dinner, dancing and drinks at the many live music bars along Nakayamate Dori. When you’ve tired yourself out, recharge in Kobe hotels for more fun-filled days.
Kobe Airport (UKB) is an island unto itself. Really, it is. Fortunately, light rail service is easily accessible from the airport to Kobe accommodation and hot spots throughout the mainland. Get to know the area from the ground up by commuting on the subway, or see the sights street-side with private and public buses.
