  • Spread over six sections this is the Grand Bazaar of Kobe. You can find a real Who's Who of shopping there, including an actual Owl Cafe (located not too far from a Cat Cafe).  more »
  • While it was quite busy on the weekend when I went there, I felt like I was yet in another country within a country - and had a great time.  more »

  • 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.
