There is history (Memorial to the recent earthquake), the port tower offering fabulous 360degree views, the Maritime and Kawasaki museums (more interesting than I had thought it would be), harbour cruises and even a fun park with ferris wheel.

The view of Kobe bay was exceptional. You get to see how a city can beautifully stand between sea and mountain. It was a really nice place to just relax and talk to people. At the same time, for those of you who fancy shopping, the Umie Mall will not disappoint you. It would be best to bring your smartphone... More

It takes only one hour by train to go to Kobe from Kyoto station and completely free of charge if you use your JP Pass. This habor is very beautiful and peaceful to have a walk, specially at night. Try it and you will love it.

But it really depends where you go. The setting is spectacular, by the harbor, and you can find a lot of things from restaurants to movie centers to all kind of shops. You really have to be selective, the place does not really have a souls but is worth going from times to times. Some of the best sea side... More

So many floors and 2 separate buildings. Shops close at different times. There are grocery stores and food courts also. We also visited the Manyo Onsen in harbourland whixh was... More

A lovely spot to wander or to sit and look out over the water, anytime of the year. With shops and lots of fantastic restaurant to choose from, you could spend hours hanging out. And if you want more even more shops then across the road is a nice big shopping centre with department style stores.
