This is the #2 tripadvisor attraction in kobe and proof that besides kobe beef, there isn't much else here Some people compared this to sydney harbour or san francisco's pier and that's too generous There are 2 boring malls here with lots of restaurants, none of them any good. There's a children's museum which i didn't go to. Didn't see... More

The area include a number of sites such as the maritime museum, Kawasaki exhibition, a lot of shops and eateries and cruise boats and hotels. Worth a look and accessible by train.

We enjoyed the views @ the Harborland. It's understandably a touristy place as you have the Kobe port tower there which seems to be the symbol of the city. You will have some good opportunities to take landscape panoramic pictures. There are also cafes, restaurants and many shops there. We walked from the trainstation Kobe Sannomiya and it took us...

Kobe Harborland is easy to find, just look for the red tower! You can go up in the tower, but we did not. Walked through the mall had drinks at of all places a Tony Roma's, but the views were really nice. Also went to Harborland for dinner - lots of choices. The whole area has a safe feel so... More

Kobe's harbour is a busy place - so if you don't like the chaotic moment of people it's not for you. There's shops and food and then there's way out places meaning luxury liners and hotels which are within visibility but not within the average person's ability afford to enjoy them. If you like dreaming, if you can look lovingly... More

We went there to view the city. It's expensive for the value you get - a close terrace with not updated pictures of the city. I would recommend to skip this attraction and not pay 700 yen per person for it.

You can see the history of earthquake and the Kobe harbour in one site. There is a museum and some monuments of earthquake for sightseeing and grasp of the culture of the city.

I found in love with Kobe harborland at night. I took hundreds of pictures and this place is one of a kind, amazing place for photographers. The reflections in the water is amazing. I recommend to come at night time, it's the best time to see. It's surrounded with shopping malls and restaurants to keep you occupy until late night.... More
