“dating spot”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

this harborland is full of restaurants in the mosaic area and it's nice overlooking the sea... they also have some cruising offer and a ship named concerto, i think. there's a lso a magic gazeebo here which will light once you shake hands with your partner. it has a big ferris wheel wherein lights and lighting designs are changing every now and then, like a slide show or something... hahahaha=) there also a mall at the other side of mosaic which has a good interior design. the canal garden shops seemed cozy. a good place to hang-out!

“very nice at night”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

kobe harborland is one stop along the kobe city loop bus route. there are many areas to explore, and many great spots for photos.

it's best to go there in the late afternoon. you can spend a few hours in the hake mall near the bus stop. there's a large seria (100-yen store) and a HUGE uniqlo. there's also a small gourmet shop on the second floor, and a green tea cafe and mos burger on the first floor. the place has a lovely atrium with a nice clock display and very cute bells that chime every hour. when the sun sets, you can take the escalator to the bridge connecting to the harbor. there are many novelty shops and places to eat. nearer the water, the view is fantastic, with the tower and other other buildings lit up.

if you're going home by train, there's a bridge connecting hake to the train station.

“Great way to finish a day visit to Kobe”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We visited Kobe for a day from Osaka and first went to the Cablecar then visited the area of the former consulate houses. After we caught the loop bus to Harbourland to visit the maritime museum, Kawasaki museum, earthquake memorial and then onto the shops and restaurants in Harbourland. We strolled around the area doing a little windowshopping, rested on the waterfront tables with a "bubble juice" and admired the view. The scene was quite peaceful on the waterfront and we took a few photos of the area. Around dinner time we selected a small restaurant that had a great menu, with something for each of us. The food servings were huge. After dinner we strolled through the arcade to the Kobe railway station for our train trip back to our hotel in Osaka. This is the second time I have been here and I love the atmosphere on the waterfront. This was a great way to finish our day trip to Kobe and I recommend the area for children as well as adults. We will visit again when in Japan.
