With famous downtown stores – and even a cruise ship – serving the finest namesake Kobe Beef, as well as classy cafes everywhere you look in the Okamoto and Mikage districts, Kobe is justifiably a foodie paradise. Consuming more tea and bread than anywhere else nationwide, it embraces Western-style food to offer visitors a wide range of delicacies from just about anywhere. Home to one of Japan’s three Chinatowns, high-quality Asian cuisine is also readily available. Why not wash it all down with some world-famous Kobe sake or locally brewed Kirin beer?
