  • Night view of the Mayan mountains, Mt. Rokko's hardness, but it's easy to go to offer numerous night harborland most most gorgeous. Shopping malls, restaurants, and you will see that everyone will enjoy, all in harborland. During the day, but come evening you have to much fanfare if you go at night time investment, we recommend the following distribution. Mosaic is a kiddy land too. The Mall has a toy dangerous Grand baby are also dangerous. (Across the street from the mosaic umie my) but even on top of Mt. Rokko should invest lots of time once the Mayan mountains or to go to, for lack of an inconvenient to access.

Where to stay in Kobe

Kobe does best with sleek mid-range and high-end hotels offering views of the skyline; book rooms facing south for views of the bay during the day and the city lights at night. Luxury hotels along the waterfront are pricey but offer impeccable comfort and service. You can find last-minute accommodations at the city's budget hotels from the information desk in the main train station or online. For a very Japanese experience, try out one of the city's capsule hotels, known for ingenious space efficiency.
