The history of Kobe (神戸) goes back to the 7th century. As one of the ports open to international visitors – along with Hakodate, Nagasaki, Yokohama, and Niigata – Kobe has had a long history of international influence.
While the ports that opened to international trade entirely cut off foreign settlements from local residences, Kobe created foreign areas that had no real physical restrictions.
After visiting Kobe’s main sites, the visitor can easily find something to delight the palate. Kobe beef is said to be one of the highest-grade brands of wagyu, or Japanese-produced beef.
Also, sake produced in Kobe’s Nada district is known as some of the best in the world.
