Kobe

— 5 nights
Walkable, small, and aesthetically charming, Kobe has served as Japan's first and premier international trading outpost since opening to trade with China in the mid-19th century.
Explore Kobe's surroundings by going to Awaji (Awajihanasajiki & Awaji Highway Oasis) and Himeji (Otokoyama Hachimangu Shrine, Koko-en, &more). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown), deepen your understanding at Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Maya, and take in nature's colorful creations at Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens.
