Kobe is the most exotic and beautiful place in Europe. Two streets separate the buildings that Europeans have lived in. The area and surrounding environment are distinct and full of European style. The red spires and the small European-style exquisite villas are different and each has its own style.
Since this area used to be an area where foreigners lived, many old buildings and monuments were left behind. It was a street built more than 100 years ago when the port of Kobe was opened, so it is called an old settlement. Nowadays, boutiques and open-air cafes are stationed one after another. It is a fashionable area that represents the latest trend in Kobe. The streets are more spacious, clean and comfortable, elegant and refreshing. It is the most European-style street in the Kansai region, which is extremely eye-catching.
Kobe was the first port in Japan to be forced to open a port, leaving behind quite a few Western buildings. The old settlement is such a large area dominated by European architecture, which is actually a bit like the Bund in Shanghai. The main buildings include the Old Settlement No. 38, Coast Building, Merchant Marine Mitsui Building, Shinko Building, Chartered Building, Old Settlement No. 15 Kankan, Kobe City Museum, and the Japan Pearl Hall.
