Koh Love this place. This is my second trip here and I try to make it an annual trip. The whole area is simply so relaxing and beautiful. Try their gold onsen, it's good for your skin. You can see many local Japanese old aunties travel all the way here every week for skinbeauty treatment through soaking themselves in the onsen. It's known that during the olden days, only the emperor or the royal family members can enjoy the gold onsen.
E35***38if you are into castles and architecture, you should visit himeji castle. The wonders of how they build during that era is amazing and one wonders how they even came up with the idea for the structure. Warning, be prepared to climb vertical stairs... like 45 degrees with low ceiling. Overall, it was a beautiful experience.
vivienvivienKobe port was one of the most important industrial and commercial ports in Japan, and it was a foreign country in the Meiji period. The Port Tower, the Ocean Museum and the Mosaic Ferris Wheel are the landmarks of the Port.
Koh I love Kitano area. It's so nice and artzy to wak around. The East meets West old building made me spent almost the whole day exploring this area. I've found some wonderful café and restaurant for my meal too. It's an unforgettable sweet memory for me.
GLS***66Mt. Rokko stands 931 meters above sea level, and is one of the most popular places for outdoor activities in all of Kansai. It's one of the few mountains in the world that has over 100 hiking courses, so of course, many people travel from all over to hike there. Paths are all clearly marked with signs (in Japanese only, but some have photos to help you out) and you can choose from a variety of shorter or very long hikes great for all different fitness levels.
