Kobe is one of the more famous cities in Japan due to its popular dish, the Kobe Beef. However, despite its many interesting sights to visit, it is still out of the route of many tourists who visit Japan.
Kobe is only a 30 minute trip from Osaka or 1 hour from Kyoto. If you visit the Kansai region, you can take a day trip in Kobe! Kobe is famous for being a port city. What makes Kobe special is its variety of sceneries from the port to the beautiful mountain backdrop. In Japan, Kobe is regarded as the stylish city for its Eurpoean style architecture.
