    Hyogo Kobe-shi Chuo-ku Higashikawasakicho 1-chome
    A promenade in the redeveloped Kobe Harborland district in Chuo Ward, Kobe City. The wooden boardwalk runs along the seafront from the side of the brick warehouse to the New Port Fifth Jetty Old Signal Station. With gas lamps and benches, it's a popular spot for a stroll while enjoying the scent of the sea. It also has a nice view of Kobe Port. At Harbor Walk's far end is the 46.3-meter New Port Fifth Jetty Old Signal Station that's bathed in soft light at night.
  • Sakoshi
    Travel / Tourism
    Hyogo Ako-shi Sakoshi
    Sakoshi is a port town in eastern Ako City on the shores of Sakoshi Bay. The area is blessed with an excellent natural environment that includes the virgin forests of Ikishima Island and the clear streams of the Chikusa River. Even now, Sakoshi retains an old townscape with the look of a port town of yesteryear. Unlike many of the towns in the Setouchi Region that developed along the shore, Sakoshi is notable for having developed along Daido, the avenue that connected the Chikusa River and Sakoshi Port. The avenue, which linked the Chikusa River's network of flatboats to the quiet Seto Inland Sea's network of large cargo vessels, is a clue of Sakoshi's history as a major logistical hub.

Hyogo Areas


Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
