Get to know Kobe (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Kobe.

Less than a thirty-minute ride away from Osaka along the JR Kobe line, Kobe City and Kobe Bay are a welcome day trip to sample fresh, sweet sake straight from the dozens of Sake breweries and Sake brewery museums along the bay; take in the sights from the sky deck viewing platform atop the Kobe Tower at the water's edge; and cure all of your shopping needs in and around Chinatown, where big-name brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel occupy former port warehouses and government buildings displaying their latest displays. At night, Kobe comes most alive when the youth of the city begin to fill the streets and bars, looking for a feast or a drink or two around ten o'clock. The electricity of the people and the electricity of the lights that cover the shops and attractions such as the Kobe Tower are simply fantastic to watch and enjoy.

Options for hostels in Kobe are somewhat limited, but if you wish to explore Kobe a little bit further than just a day trip around the sights, there are a collection of reasonably priced hotels and guesthouses in both modern and traditional designs.

Visitors should be mindful that there are in fact three train lines that pass through Kobe's coastline -- the JR Kobe Line, the Hankyu Kobe Line, and Hanshin Main Line. Make sure you depart from the right station at the right time to avoid delay in your ongoing journey and also to make full use of any return tickets or Japan Rail Pass.
