I like this kind of place very much. It is very suitable for meeting friends to walk around in an afternoon, drinking coffee, very petty-bourgeois atmosphere, the whole environment feels quite good, you can also see the beautiful building
Kitano Workshop Street.
A large number of Western-style buildings were built in Kobe during the Meiji and Taisho periods, and Kitano is the best preserved.
The area from Kitano Yamamoto-dori 1-chome to 3-chome is called Kitano Ijinkan Street, and there are many private residences of foreign businessmen or foreign consulates.
Walking on this street, many small western-style buildings are in front of you, most of which are now transformed into Fuwu Museums or art galleries or restaurants and boutiques.
From Osaka to Himeji, there is a Hanshin tram or JR that can go directly (passing Kobe Sannomiya on the way). When you come back, you can get off at Kobe and go to Kitano Studio, then go to Arima Onsen from Kobe and return to Osaka.
You can get here with a Kobe cityloop ticket. In fact, it's nothing to see, it's just a place that sells Kobe specialties. This is a remodeled elementary school, the old architectural style is a bit interesting.
Western-style architecture is very beautiful with Japanese characteristics.
