Kitano-cho, Kobe

(380+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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. Make Kitano-cho a centerpiece of your Kobe vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Kobe trip itinerary builder.

  • I went by that staple of Kobe. City 其no物 is not so widely is the slope, back alleys and stairs, will be a good exercise. It is small and the Yokohama Yamate.

  • This neighborhood is nice, but its main attraction is at its top: the Kitano Tenman Shrine. Moreover, these few "European" all homes will have a paid entry. Among these, I recommend the less "cultural" but very fun "Trick Art Misterious Consulate". Nice area to visit and in which go when the weather is nice.

  • Slope, so it is somewhat onerous. So many more paid the economic strength is required. 10000 Yen will be sufficient. If you buy the scales House group ticket savings. In addition, interspersed with a modest house, a lovely town. Good very well.
