The Best Food In The World!

Along with experiencing all the local food a particular area has to offer, one great part of traveling is the food served at your lodging. At Kobe Kitano Hotel, you can taste a lot of the local delicacies in just one meal, and that without even staying there. So, if you feel a bit peckish in the morning, why not go there and try out their sumptuous breakfast?


You can of course stay there even if your only goal is to try out their breakfast. Have a look at the article below and all the wonderful pictures. Girls love the place! You will not be disappointed:

Locals love the shops here and their vast array of foods. The entire street is filled with enticing smells and mouth-watering dishes. Why not try one of everything from one end to the other! And don’t miss the bokkake croquet!


Break Time With Coffee & Supreme Scones!

If you’re tired from walking too much and want to regain your strength with something sweet, Kobe is the perfect place for you! It’s packed with tasty sweets, so if you can’t decide where to go, have we got the place for you?! The hugely popular “Scone & Coffee M” is loved by local foodies and is the place to go.

“Scones can be found all over Japan, but they are all different from the real, authentic ones. I’ve tried many, and even though it is supposed to be a simple pastry to make, with simple ingredients, every single one lacks that something special. So, I decided I had to master the secret of baking scones in England and bring it back to Japan.”

Yummy, reasonably-priced “Original” Soba With Rice & Beer!

You may wonder why it says “original”, when soba does not originate from Kobe. This is actually a special soba dish made by frying soba noodles on an iron plate together with rice and putting on a special sauce. Hailing from Nagata Ward, Kobe City, sobameshi, as it’s called, is a popular, cheap and delicious dish, and its “original” birthplace is this very restaurant.

It’s in Kobe, but it’s called Aomori…
Nonetheless, this really is the birthplace of sobameshi, so don’t worry and just go straight in!

Don’t forget your beer!
Regulars huddle together on the counter seats and enjoy their beer and sobameshi.

There is nothing better!

What do you think?

Tourist magazines are all well and good, but please also visit these places recommended by our local writers.
