    Points of Interest near Kobe

    Looking for important things or something to do or a place to go see near Kobe? Here is our list of options.

    Filter By Tags:

    • Kobe
      Kobe is the sixth-largest city in Japan, with a population of around 1.5 million. Kobe is the capital of Hyōgo Prefecture and is situated on the Island of Honshū, about 30 km west of Osaka.

      Kobe was devastated by a huge, magnitude 6.9, earthquake on January 17th, 1995. About 6,434 people were killed and a further 212,443 were rendered homeless by this tragic event. Some of the damage has been preserved as a memorial of this terrible natural disaster.

    • Umeda
      Umeda is a district of Osaka and it could be said to mark the northern end of the business and entertainment district popularly known as Kita ("North"), and is the essence of modern Osaka's hustle and bustle.
      Umeda, Kita, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 530-0001, Japan
    • Osaka

      More than just Japan's second city, Osaka is also the perfect base from which to explore nearby Nara and Kyoto by train. Although Osaka is overshadowed by Tokyo in the big-city stakes - it is a vibrant and energetic world capital in its own right and certainly has plenty to offer the curious visitor.

      Indeed, for many visitors Osaka is more truly -Japanese than Tokyo - having more character than its extensive rival to the east. Osakans pride themselves on being more hospitable, genial and more casual than their Tokyo brethren, whom they have fun to ridicule as solemn and strict. They are also renowned throughout Japan for two things: doing business and eating.

      Originally a merchant city and trading hub, a mantle that it still maintains.  It is a place to do business, and with it pleasure - and you will find these inseparable here for the business-folk of this city.

    • Shinsaibashisuji

      This is Osaka's widely known Shinsaibashi shopping mall, maybe not as well known as the in Tokyo equivalent markets of Ginza and Shinjuku.

      My recommendation is that you are short of time in the City - this should be the place you visit at night for an evening stroll.

      Shinsaibashisuji, Chuo, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 542-0085, Japan
    • Ebisu Bridge

      The small Ebisu Bridge is a favorite meeting place for Osaka's trendiest young things. As you cross the bridge, stop in the middle to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the people, the blazing neon, and the Dotomburi River below you. 

      Ebisu Bridge 1 Chome-6 Dotonbori, Chuo, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 542-0071, Japan
    • Dotonbori
      Dotonbori is at night is Osaka's ultimate assault on the senses. A cornucopia of bizarre creatures adorns the buildings flanking this pedestrian mall: giant monsters slither down the buildings, restaurants, cinemas. theaters, games centers, and steamy noodle bars. No photograph can capture the intensity of this strange and unforgettable concourse.
      Dotonbori, Chuo, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 542-0071, Japan
    • Museum of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka

      The Museum of Oriental Ceramics, located in the garden at one end of Nakanoshima, the "central island" in the middle of the large river running through Osaka's center.

      Here you can find fine specimens of the Korean and Chinese ceramics that so strongly influenced Japan's own styles.

      Most of Osaka's municipal buildings are on Nakanoshima, including an elegant European-style town hall dating from 1918, one of the few red-brick buildings in Japan.

      Here you'll also get a splendid view of Osaka Castle which is dramatically illuminated at night.

    • Nipponbashi

      In the Nipponbashi area you will find Den-Den Town, Osaka's sadly underwhelming answer to Tokyo's Akihabara electronics district.

      Nipponbashi is also famous as the national home of bunraku. Although its popularity waned during the Meiji paled, it has been "rediscovered" this century, the most dramatic evidence being the vast investment in the National Bunraku Theater in Nipponbashi.

      Nipponbashi, Chuo, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 542-0073, Japan
    • National Bunraku Theatre
      This is the home of national home of "bunraku". Japan's dazzling traditional puppet theater. Although various forms of puppet theater date back to the 11th century, the remarkably expressive and elaborately costumed bunraku style was thriving by the 17th century in both Osaka and Kyoto.
      National Bunraku Theatre 1 Chome-12-10 Nipponbashi, Chūō-ku, Ōsaka-shi, Ōsaka-fu 542-0073, Japan
    • Kansai International Airport

      You may fly to Kansai airport to access the Kansai region, which is essentially the heat of the nation; embracing the historical and cultural centers of Kyoto and Nara, the Ise-Shima shrines, and the vibrant commercial cities of Osaka and Kobe.

      White Tokyo usually provides the first glimpse of modern Japan’s many strange contracts, it is to Kyoto and Nara the visitors with even a passing interest in Japanese history and culture come to peel back the layers of centuries. Although Kyoto is internationally renowned as the country's de facto cultural capital, nearby Nara was the first important home of the imperial court and still boasts many of Japan's most important temples and shrines.

      Ise-Shima Park is the ultimate sanctuary of Japan's ancestral Shinto gods.

      Osaka and next door Kobe offer striking views of commercial Japan in all it's modernity, this on a slightly more accessible and maybe less intimidating scale than that of Tokyo's urban sprawl.

      No other region of Japan offers the same combination of urban intensity, rural tranquility, and dramatic cultural treasures —and all in such close proximity.
