It was almost by chance that we visited Kobe on our last trip to Japan. It was not planned to go there, the reason was just practical, thinking about the trains and that the places we really wanted to visit were all around Kobe.
In the end, that decision was a success, we loved what we found there.
A city with more than a million inhabitants where you find a mix of occidental and oriental architecture, lots of shops to get lost, and much more calmed than Osaka, Kioto and Tokyo. If you are thinking about Kobe meat…we leave that for another day
