What people are saying:

Lots of food.. The famous award winning Japanese milk pudding is just right at the entrance of China Town Kobe.. smooth, creamy and there's a layer of brown sugar syrup at the bottom. I personally prefer it without the brown sugar syrup. Frankly speaking, the Isuzu bakery award winning mini cream bun with burned orange slice caramelize topping is cheaper and taste much better than this pudding in China Town.

    Nice Chinatown, different from rest of Japan. However smaller than many Western chinatowns

    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 hybri...

There are hundreds of food and beverage outlets and grocery stores in a small area, which has a strong traditional Chinese character and is very lively.
