Only a 10 minute walk (although uphill) from Kobe Sannomiya Station, this area had retained its rich history by maintaining the facade of the old buildings whilst renovating the interior into interesting museum spaces,...More

Located close to Herb Garden; about ten minutes by foot from the former. Nothing much to see.. just houses from the older times occupied by westerners. Each house requires a entry fee. Worth a skip! Unless you want to walk to shops where they sell...More

三宮からタクシーで異人館通りの1番上まで連れていってもらい、そこから南下する形で、三宮まで戻りました。 タクシーはワンメーターで行けました。バスも良いですが、人数が多ければタクシーの方がお得です。 降りたところにチケット売り場があり、迷いましたが料金が高かったのと、うろこの家がメインの訪問場所だったので、異人館5館巡れるチケットを購入しました。値段的には真ん中の料金です。 うろこの家はとても綺麗で、中は小さな美術館になっており、神戸ゆかりの作家の絵が展示してありました。小高い場所にあるので、神戸の景色も一望でき良かったです。おすすめです。 We went Ijinkan-dori-street by taxi. It would be cheaper depending on how many you are. It was the minimam fate till there. Uroko no Ie House was our main object, so we bought the middle entrance fee among three kinds of...More

A collection of restored houses / museums with some interesting objects. Good for taking some photos but definitely overpriced. Not worth the trouble unless you happen to be in the neighborhood and have some time to kill; note also that you can save some money...More
