  • Onsen and Dine at traditional Japanese restaurants around the onsen. Good to visit with family and stay for couple of nights to de-stress your nerves away from the mainstream  more »
  • A taste of old-fashioned spa town, very calm. Guests can enjoy eating out in the hot spring town. Baked specialty soda crackers, in just 1-2 seconds hardens quickly, so people shop crackers should be eaten immediately, cut, paper prepared for me so give me fresh. Very soft and delicious.

Where to stay in Kobe

Kobe does best with sleek mid-range and high-end hotels offering views of the skyline; book rooms facing south for views of the bay during the day and the city lights at night. Luxury hotels along the waterfront are pricey but offer impeccable comfort and service. You can find last-minute accommodations at the city's budget hotels from the information desk in the main train station or online. For a very Japanese experience, try out one of the city's capsule hotels, known for ingenious space efficiency.
