About Chinatown (Nankinmachi)

Kobe Chinatown is a Chinese-style Chinatown, and is ranked as the three largest Chinese streets in Japan along with Yokohama Chinatown and Nagasaki Newland Chinatown. 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. The decoration of the shop and the Chinese-style lanterns can be seen everywhere on the street. During the Spring Festival, you can also watch the dragon and lion dance performances. The whole street is filled with a grand festive atmosphere.

    Kobe Chinatown in Japan, not Chinatown or China Street, is called Nanjing Ding (Ding means street). As for why it is called, a brief check is made: in the latter half of the nineteenth century, more Chinese came to Japan to do business and were born in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. So some Japanese call the Chinese Nanjing people. The place where the Nanjing people gather is Nanjing Ding. Year after year, more and more Chinese came to Japan, and Nanjing Street became more and more busy. In 1900, under the advocacy of Liang Qichao, the first Chinese school, Tongwen School, was established in Nanjing. I see. But why there is a Guandi Temple is not clear. It seems that Master Guan and Business have no half-money relationship. This magnificent Guanyu Temple is located on the east side of Shantou Street. It passes through two red doors. What is in sight is a colorful hall dedicated to Guanyu, the hero of the Three Kingdoms Period in China. The gate of Nanjing Ding is on the East side. At the entrance, there is a Chinese-style Red Gate building, which reads: Chang'an Gate. Through the gate, it is the cross-shaped central street of Nanjing East Road, West Road, South Road and North Road. The signs of the shops are in Chinese. The Chinese Street has a history of more than 120 years. Now there are more than 100 Chinese restaurants and grocery stores. From Baozipu to Beijing Hotel and Sichuan Hotel, all kinds of so-called Chinese cuisine come together here. There are also small stores selling firewood, rice, oil and salt, which are never comparable to Yokohama in terms of scale and reputation. But antique buildings, full of exotic atmosphere, walking around to see is still good. There are three Chinatowns in Japan: Nagasaki, Kobe and Yokohama. The most important feature is the geographical features of these locations, which are situated on the side of mountains and looking at the sea.

    I came to Nanjing Dinghua Street by bus. I am the one who has not been to Yokohama, and this one is also __________ It's too small. It's gone without two steps. There's a shop that wants to eat fried rice in small cages and rice noodles. It's decorating. I decided to eat Kobe steak. Of course, when I came to Zhonghua Street, I still had to eat small steaks. Every family sells the same things. I'd better go back to China and eat them.

    In many countries, there are Chinatowns, the places where Chinese people gather, which is very common in developed countries. Kobe China Street is one of them. Looking at the Chinese characters all over the street, I could not help laughing, there is a sense of belonging.

    Kobe's Nanjing Street was known as one of the three Chinatown in Japan, along with Nagasaki Chinatown and Yokohama Chinatown. It is located near the old residence and can be visited together from Kobe Port American Park.

    A street not far from Kobe Harbor is basically open by Chinese people. When you see such a street abroad, you can't help wandering around. It feels good to eat steamed buns in small cages. There are a lot of food in Shanghai, Beijing and Taiwan.
