Lunched at Kobe Club where our kids learned to swim in the Summer holidays when we lived next door, good food in tranquil surroundings. Interesting and smart area for visitors. Excellent meal at Cafe de Paris one evening.

Can be combined with the Herb Gardens and Cable Car, plus easy access with the hop on hop off bus. Nice area for a stroll around, entry to the houses seems expensive, but the little shops and cafes are cute.

The area where the foreigners used to have their homes. Some are well preserved and open to the public. It is a nice area to stroll around. We visited the Dutch house, for a fee that I found rather expensive, and that was for me...More

Quaint, traditional colonial houses were great spots for photos. Boulevard that are well kept with floral and foliage that enhance the old world charm. Do check out Starbucks and it was really like stepping into someone’s bungalow complete with books, chandelier and picture frames that...More

There are mentions of the name Sassoon in the Jewish history of Kobe found on the internet-but if their house has been turned into a wedding reception place the number is +81-78-2514111.
