On this tour, visit four different breweries ranging from small family-run businesses to Japan’s biggest sake brewery.

This is the area between Motomachi Arcade (2km) and Harborland. It is an historic part of Kobe. To the North mountain side is a super arcade. To the south seaside is Merikan Park (American Park) which is where the US Army was based during the occupation. Now it is a great open area with the Kawasaki Industrial Museum - worth a visit! In front of you ( to the west) is harbourland another area of restaurants and viewing decks and pleasure cruises. In NankinMachi there is lots if street food and dont miss the gyouza and butaman!

Second best Chinatown in Japan, right behind Yokohama for many. It’s not a super big area which is nice, and you can walk around pretty easily!

Very near to our hotel, this part of kobe town was quaint with excellent Chinese New year performances throughout the day and evening. The variety of food there was also great and the people spoke excellent mandarin which made it easy for overseas Chinese to communicate. Overall highly recommended.

Kobe’s Chinatown is among the major Chinatowns in Japan, and definitely an interesting sight to have Chinese shops and architecture in the middle of Japan. It definitely creates a very beautiful hybrid. Here you can also see roadside stalls which is very uncommon in Japan selling mostly Chinese dishes. Nice shops too. However it’s a very small area, and a lot of Western cities have much larger Chinatowns than this. If you’ve an entire day in Kobe, it’s a good place to visit but if you’ve a time crunch feel free to skip it.
