Visited here during a long weekend and it was quite crowded. Lots of shops and places to eat, but believe it or not, I didn't even check the shops since it was really crowded and there was a big line everywhere. However, really enjoyed the night view. :)

Perhaps at night this area would be more interesting, but during the day it is pretty dead - good on a rainy day as there are lots of mall-type shopping. The memorial to the 1995 earthquake was interesting as was the part of the sea wall left as it was immediately after the quake.

This harbour is a prime location to soak up the heart of Kobe's night life, food and shopping districts. Lit up like a Christmas tree at night, the harbour is embedded in various amusement parks and entertainment whilst still actively a functioning harbour taking in cruises day and night. The central feature of this location is the Kobe port tower... More

Nice stroll along the port with pretty view at night. In day time, you probably can kill time at all the shopping malls around that offer abundant choices of latest fashionable items and goods. There are also many nice restaurants around that offer balcony seats looking out to the port. And for family with kids, there is an anpan man... More

From the harbor, one can see the television tower and a ferry wheel. There's a anpan superman museum and lots of clothing shops offering relatively cheap pricing clothes. There's a book store and a sega gamezone. Geneally a really good place for shopping.

Visiting Kobe to see my daughter who is going to school there - I got the college kid tour of Kobe : ) Go to a 7Eleven, buy a bento boxed meal - they will heat it up for you. Then go down to Harborland and sit on the steps at the seawall there. Great people watching, eating a nice... More

The Harborland consists of big malls, a ferris wheel and nice promenades. There are underground pathways leading to the area from JR Kobe Station. Some shops in the malls offer a real bargain, so I do suggest spending some time shopping in the malls in the baking afternoons. When evening comes, walk out to the promenades and enjoy the Kobe...
