Kobe delights

Kobe is known internationally for the beef but actually in Japan, people say that Kobe Beef is the 3rd best after Matsuzaka and Ohmi Beef, I tend to agree

Did you know that this industry is in danger. with the ageing population, less and less people want to take over the business and the average farmers’age is currently 66.

Kobe is also known to be the bread and cakes city as it is among the ports that first opened to foreigners (Dutch and Portuguese) together with Nagasaki and you find there delicious cakes

 

Kobe

Kobe is a nice city, with a mix of port, student life and hills. I like the Kitano area with European style villas, the hills and the garden at the top, but also the restaurants in town and the cakes and bakers everywhere. It is more peaceful than Osaka and people are nice
