The feel of the Kobe Port area remains alive and well here, with traces of what was once called "the most beautiful foreign settlement in the East." The retro-modern style architecture from Japan's early modern period has been updated with restaurants and cafes, while keeping its original beauty intact. Experience lovely city lights and illuminations, such as lit-up buildings like the Kobe City Museum and the Daimaru Kobe store, and the enchanting street lights. Looked at from the south, Akashimachi Street offers a tree-lined avenue that is followed by an illuminated path leading to a wedding hall.
