A country full of charms, one vastly unique from the other, Japan certainly has a delight for every traveller – may it be the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, the out-of-this-world food and quirks of Osaka, or the serenity of Kyoto shrines. 

While Kobe rings a bell to travelers as home to the delectable, world-class quality Kobe beef, this city certainly stands underrated for its own beauty, being between both the sea and mountains. Here are six worthwhile spots you should definitely visit when in Kobe!

Kobe Port Tower

This symbolic landmark elevates you to grand heights, giving you a panoramic view of Kobe Bay, the Rokko Mountains, and the rest of the city charms. Dare to try the transparent-floor skywalk for the ultimate sightseeing experience.
