“History of Kobe's past”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We missed visiting this area last time in Kobe, so I was glad that we were able to do it this trip. We purchased a ticket to visit 4 houses as our time was limited. Panama, Britain, France and Ben's house. The houses were all interesting and each one different in their own way. It is worth the visit to this area and if you have the time, look at as many houses as you can. The area is lovely to walk with the little shops along the way. We spent some time at one shop taste testing the different treats and bought some treats for later. When we finnished looking at the houses we took the loop line bus to Meriken Park.

“a step into a non Japanese surrounding in Japan”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I simply loved walking around this area aimlessly. A lot of beautiful gardens and houses in this area. Some made me feel like I was in Amsterdam, some in other parts of Europe. The whole area gave a perfect backdrop to any photos. During the New Year celebration, the temples were packed with locals and tourists. Food galore, everwhere.

“Well maintained European enclave”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Interesting area and so well maintained. While at this place, one would have imagined being in Europe. Very lovely place for photography, cute little shops all along. The walk can be a little steep but well worth it. The flowers and plants are beautifully kept. Young japanese teenagers love this place and so did I.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The surrounding area of Ijinkan-gai is extremely beautiful. Buildings are all well preserved and organized. Good spots for taking picture.. It's even better visiting during low season when it's not packed with tourists..
