Kitano-cho, Kobe

(3.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Walk out balconies Venus came 15 minutes walk from Sannomiya Station, or a 15-minute came as well, no need to up the City bus Loop it. This area is full of. Homes, shops, designed the building in a Western, but it is not so much beauty it looks exactly the same as a new tourist attraction. Like in Venezia, but it's cheap entertainment, eating shop.

  • Refers to as "Kobe flirts is a settlement (kyoryuuchi).". Foreigners in business on this ground roots, thin mustache, with a country-style houses in their area. Because it was totally different with that of Japanese architecture, Kobe residents their living quarters "city of Kitano had handed down that. "Kitano", in areas of high fashion, exotic, Kitano Club Kobe flirts with the businessman's favorite restaurant as well as alive and well now.
