Specialty Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Kobe City Museum opened in Kobe, Japan in 1982. It is one of Japan's many museums which are supported by a municipality.
The museum combines two collections, the Municipal Archaeological Art Museum and Municipal Namban Art Museum. The museum is housed in a neoclassical building built in 1935, the former Kobe branch of the Yokohama Specie Bank. The collection of nearly thirty-nine thousand items comprises archaeological artifacts, works of art, old maps, and historical documents and artifacts relating to Kobe. It includes an important collection of Namban art (the former Hajime Ikenaga Collection), as well as a set of dōtaku and other items of the Yayoi period from excavations at Sakuragaoka that have been designated a National Treasure.

  • Just 50m further than the Fugetsudo main shop in the Motomachi gallery you'll find a very nice house which contains the Fugetsudo museum. It's a small and free museum. You'll see artwork made in...  more »
  • Small museum adjacent to famous Kobe confectionary shop in Motomachi shopping arcade. Displays of photographs, technology and equipment used in former days. Free entry. Explanatory signs only in Japanese, which is unfortunate, since this famous company could share important history of it's existence in Kobe.
  • I got lespoir and Petit gauffle when I entered. And you can see the city of Kobe in the beginning of the Showa era made of maple and pine marzipan made with sugar. (Of course, this is not allowed to eat.) It is also possible to know the history of the Can and the Fugetsu ADO with more than 300 kinds of art goods. There is a rare can, too. (The gorful in the can of the mint is a pattern of five yen ball and ten yen ball.) It seems to be able to make the original can with more than 100. It's good for wedding favors and corporate souvenirs.
