Since I couldn’t make it back to Yokohama Monday night, I took a sick day for Tuesday and explored Kobe…
Kobe’s china town.
Since Kobe was one of the first ports opened up to the western world, there was a lot of western influence on the city.

I found a very Kobeish cafe for lunch.
The water science museum… for kids, but I still had fun.
Known as the Weathercock house, it is one of the famous foreign residences in Kobe.
Lastly, I couldn’t go to the Kansai area without eating Takoyaki.
