Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
Today I'm going to write about my past trip to Kobe city.
If you access from Osaka, it's only 30 minutes by rapid train to the main station Sannomiya.
They also have a bullet train stop Shin-Kobe, and it's only 5-min to downtown by subway.
When you arrive at Sannomiya station, you'll find many people, buildings and shops.
I like walking around the local shopping street.
Also in walking distance from Sannomiya station, there is a famous shrine called Ikuta Jinja.
"Ikuta no Mori", the small woods in this shrine seems to be loved by locals.
When I visited there, I met a cute dog <3
She found me and gave me a?lovely smile!
She was very gentle and friendly, so I guess she lives here or closeby.
By only 10 minutes on foot, you can enjoy China Town too.
The China Town in Kobe is called "Nankin-Machi" (南京町).
There is my favorite shop "Ro Sho Ki".
It's famous steamed pork bun.
It's located in the center of Nankin-Machi, so it's very easy to find.
You'll find a long queue and steam from the shop.
Unfortunately, only after I have eaten it, I realized that I didn't take a photo.
I was so hungry and was waiting for the time to taste it!
I promise to take the photo when I visit there next time.
It's so fun to explore Nankin-Machi or local shopping streets in Kobe.
Kobe is known as very modern and westernized city, but you can see many different cultures in harmony here.
See you around!
