Kobe in Japan’s Kansai region is a busy little port city with close ties with countries all around the world and a distinctive cosmopolitan feel, not to mention some truly eclectic architecture. Some say the Chinatown here surpasses Yokohama’s, but we’ll leave you to make your own judgement. Although Kobe is justly famous for its highly regarded beef, some of its many other culinary delights include fresh sea bream and octopus from the nearby Akashi Kaikyo Channel (which happens to be spanned by the world’s largest suspension bridge). Just beyond Kobe is Mt. Rokko, home to Arima Onsen. One of Japan’s first onsen spa resorts, Arima is on record as far back as the eighth century and still providing restorative soaks today. Mt. Rokko also offers breathtaking views of the city and the sea beyond.
Access Five minutes on foot from Shinnagata Station or
