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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Koyasan Reihokan Museum and Otsuka Museum of Art. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cup Noodle Mueseum in Osaka, Ikeda and Todai-ji Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Kobe: Wakayama (Wakayama Castle, Kimiidera Temple, & more), Hyogo Park of the Oriental White Stork (in Toyooka) and Koya-cho (Koyasan Daimon, Mt. Koya, & more). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Himeji Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nigatsu-do Temple, enjoy breathtaking views from Kobe Port Tower, and identify plant and animal life at Nara Park.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Kobe journey planning tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Takamatsu Airport. Expect a daytime high around 80°F in September, and nighttime lows around 73°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
