Start your day the right way with the world’s number-one rated breakfast menu at the iconic red-brick Kitano Hotel, a piece of Europe in cosmopolitan downtown Kobe. Then treat yourself to a visual feast, admiring the wonders on display at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art. You’ll find shiny, gleaming, stand-out pieces in magnificent surroundings designed by the internationally-acclaimed architect Tadao Ando. The next stop is Meriken Park to admire Kobe’s symbolic Port Tower, a striking 108m-tall structure and harbor icon, neighbored by the unique BE KOBE letter monument, a must-stop for a souvenir snap. Moving to west Kobe, you’ll have the chance to stroll inside the Akashi Kaikyo suspension bridge, the world’s second longest. The Luminous Kobe night cruise and, in winter, the KOBE Luminarie light festival will add further sparkle to an unforgettable day.
