  • Nothing much or special about this place. Just happened to be around the area and decided to walk through it. The things sold here can be found everywhere.  more »
  • In my opinion, it's an average shopping street with all the typical shops and food options. Nothing bad, nothing fantastic.  more »
  • A major regional centre of Kobe, but was selling anything but cheap, and surprisingly, such as drugstores. Dining options are much less crowded on weekdays so was hanging around.

  • Busy shopping district in Kobe.
  • Shopping street in Kobe. Nowhere is no alibi. No hustle and bustle is seen in other shops, streets in loose road, classy, no people hurriedly walking. You have walked my mother and my sister and Motomachi shopping street, looking for a place long ago, my mother worked in the original town. Remember that day and walked again. And mind cool, the richest sensibility here you will find great shopping street open.

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.
