  • If you come to God, you must not miss the Mount of Malacca, although the traffic is inconvenient and there is no car on the road early, but to see the well-known night scene, you can not be wrong

  • Are migrated from Ashiyagawa over the top of Mt. to ARIMA Rokko. Were little more than 10km and about 4 hour walk. Really a mega hike through the thickets of the forests with some great vantage points to Kobe and Osaka. The contrast between the metropolises jnd the lush green mountains could not be deeper.

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.
