  • An observation platform, overlooking the Bay and the port of Kobe. Who have experienced earthquakes as Revival splendor, is a place you can feel. Sometimes attracts.

  • Click here to visit the search in view of Mt. Rokko and Mt.. Several lookouts and enjoy. In late September in summer clothes were so cold and I was shivering. It is recommended that you go cold.

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.
