Kobe Holidays

Approximately 1 500 000 people call this locality home.

This spot is approximately 430 kilometres west of the capital city of Tokyo and 25 kilometres east of Inami-cho.

The kids won't be bored in Kobe, as it has a great array of child-friendly destinations. Pop in to have a look at Fruit Flower Park or Kidzania Koshien Theme Park. The fun continues at Dekapathos and Kobe Shiritsu Rokkosan Farm.

You and your children don't need your swimmers to discover what lives in our marine environments. Plan a trip to Suma Aqualife Park Kobe and feed your inner scientist.

Have an encounter with some amazing animals at a couple of Kobe's notable zoos. Most will start out at the highly recommended the Kobe Animal Kingdom, but one other outstanding spot is the Kobe Oji Zoo.

There are a few beautiful botanical parks and gardens around Kobe where visitors can find out about new plant species or just sit and relax. Explore the Rokko Alpine Garden and the Rokko Garden Terrace. They are relaxed spots where you will encounter gardens often visited by both locals and travellers. The Roseraie Aramaki and the Nishinomiya Kitayama Botanical Garden are other spots worth visiting if you happen to find yourself in the neighbourhood.

Legs worn out from all that sightseeing? Enjoy a brief pause in some of this area's numerous green spaces. Suma Rikyu Park and Wakamatsu Park are both great spots in which you'll be able to find your own shady patch of grass. Alternate options include Kabutoyama Shinrin Park and Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial.

Of all the activities around the region, lovers of the outdoors will certainly remember spending time at Nunobiki Falls.

Don't hit the frog and toad without visiting one of the local natural reserves. Two recommended choices are Mount Rokko and Mount Maya. Staying a day or two extra? Then consider Yokawa Hotsprings and Arimafuji Park as well.

Do you love museums? If so, you'll be stoked with this destination. Here, you'll find a great number of exhibition spaces and collections. Two that attract attention are the Stamp Museum and the Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum. If you are looking for something more to do, you could also drop in at the Kobe Fashion Museum or the Sawa-no-Tsuru Museum.

Life on the open water has long bedazzled the residents of Kobe with fantasies of exciting exploits and exotic societies. Indulge your passion for learning about times long gone at the Kobe Maritime Museum and the Kōbe Maritime Museum, where visitors can wander the great displays and view some unique maritime equipment.

Do you consider yourself a bit of an Albert Einstein? If so, you'll find a whole heap to see and do in Kobe. The Akashi Municipal Planetarium and the Kobe Science Museum will interest and engage adults and children alike. The Itami City Children Culture Science Museum and the Kobe Water Science Museum are two other excellent spaces in the region which are also worthy of a gander.

Kobe is an ace spot to discover all sorts of new facts and stories about the world and our place within it. If you want to experience the most popular of its natural history museums, spend a day going between the Akashi Culture Museum, the Museum of Nature and Human Activities, Hyogo and the Tatsuuma Tatsuuma Archaeological Museum. If you've only got time for one, you might find yourself having to make some hard decisions!

Kobe boasts a dynamic arts community, as shown in its huge range of art galleries and exhibition spaces. To get you started, peruse the eclectic works at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art and the BB Plaza Museum of Art. Still not satisfied? Then why not search through the Tadanori Yokoo Museum or the Kobe City Koiso Memorial Museum of Art?

Pander to your inner history buff with a trip to one or two of the engaging museums. Go for a gander at the Kobe City Museum, the Itami Museum or the Bridge Exhibition Centre to hear of the life-changing events and past peoples that have made this region what it is today.

Whether you are a history buff or an architecture nerd, there's plenty of historic places to stop at while travelling in the area. Take a step back in time at the Kiyomorizuka and Hyogoken Kokan. Then finish off your tour with a visit to Choueke Family Residence or Former Kuki House Museum.

Spending time at Akashi Castle and admiring the impressive architecture is a terrific activity for anyone wanting to learn about the area's medieval history.

This area is known for its wide range of old religious buildings. The Nofuku Temple and Yuzuruha Shrine are the most loved of these celebrated structures, with Tosen Shrine and Shukugawa Catholic Church coming in close behind.

You'll find a couple of other less well-known locations around if you would like to visit some more modest attractions. The Shin-Kobe Ropeway and the Miki Horseland Park are both good options. Kobe Harborland and the Kitano Foreigners Club may also be worth checking out if you're keen to see everything.
