Kitano-cho, Kobe

3.7
#3 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hyogo Prefecture
Plan a walk between the different buildings of Kitano-cho, a district notable for its "ijinkan" (Western-style homes). Built by American and European traders who settled in the city during the late 19th century, each home possesses its own character and references to the Western origins of its owner. Spot the weathercock atop one house, now something of a symbol of the area as a whole, and take tea in the English-influenced tea room, surrounded by fine porcelain and antique furniture from the Victorian era.

  • One of the tourist destinations in Kobe is Kitano ijinkan-Gai. From Sannomiya to mountain Hill climb takes about 20 minutes. I hope is go search in advance or just off the alley along the way, there is a fashionable cafes and restaurants.

  • Card cannot be used despite the admission of each library is quite high! This is where more than 1000 yen and two minutes is fine, but pay with a credit card. Passport summarizes some would have something, but that cannot be determined by box office, or by the combination of the hotel where you want to go if there is a situation like this. Pay at a convenience store several hundred yen so even capable of paying by card at the international city of Kobe that as is and cannot believe! In addition, description of exhibits virtually no.

  • Like Yokohama. Western area is a foreigner, an attractive town. Ijinkan near Starbucks cafes in Japan love locals!
