When In Kobe, Do As The Kobeans…

OK, “Kobeans” might not be what you officially call Kobe residents – in fact in Japanese it is Kobe-jin, literally meaning “Kobe people”.

Name issues aside, if you are visiting Kobe make sure you explore the Nunobiki Herb Garden up on Mount Rokko. In my opinion it is one of the highlights of Kobe as you get to see a magnificent view of the Seto Inland Sea as well as surround yourself with pretty flowers and intoxicating scents.

I have just written an article for Matcha, a Japanese online travel magazine about the beauty of Nunobiki Herb Garden. So if you are planning a trip to Kobe and are interested in something special, do not forget Nunobiki. The entire article can be read here or at https://matcha-jp.com/en/4535

    1. Hmm, that’s a tough question. I think Kobe is merely “just another city” in Japan: sure it’s pretty and has interesting spots, but I personally wouldn’t make a day trip from Tokyo only to see Kobe. BUT in saying that I think if you can spare a couple of days then do explore Kobe and surrounding area – one day just seems like a waste of a shinkansen ticket in my opinion 🙂
