Chinatown (Nankinmachi), Kobe
(2.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Chinatown (Nankinmachi) on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kobe trip itinerary builder.

  • Lined with delicious shop a lot at first glance, but I get to care! listen anyway huh, so actually buying and eating them. From high to bad. I ate at the store if it is safe.

  • For me it's part of the everyday landscape. Something to eat, decided separately for each shop to eat, so go where or even if you are determined. It is a luxury of Kobe.

  • I visited some tens years Buri. Visited were there Sunday, and can't walk straight. So there seems to have dim sum you are looking for, but more than 50 are lined in crowded areas. I like to eat at your restaurant, to buy over the counter while eating out.
