Chinatown (Nankinmachi), Kobe

Venture past the ornate street gates and carved lions into Chinatown (Nankinmachi) for a quick change of scenery, culture, and cuisine. The neighborhood dates back to the 1860s, when Kobe's ports first opened to foreign trade and the earliest Chinese immigrants moved into the city. A large population of Chinese still live there, and the brightly colored signs, many restaurants, and shops selling Chinese imports and souvenirs preserve their distinct heritage.

  • I went on the night of the Golden Dawn. Most stores said the night was 6:30 PM, but most restaurants closed, and are sold at street stalls. Caution is required because it did not know there were several stores only Chinatown night closes so early.
