If you want to enjoy the great history in the home of some of the most delicious beef in the world, then Kobe, Japan, is the destination for you. Kobe beef is a popular type of meat that hails from this city and it comes from the Tajima strain of Wagyu cattle. During your visit, you can try some of this beef that's known for its incredible flavor and tenderness. There are also plenty of attractions to visit like the Merikan Park & Harborland, Mount Rokko, Nankin-Machi and the Kobe Luminarie.
If you re traveling with children or just an animal lover at heart, you can take a trip to the Oji Zoo. This zoo is filled with animals from the area, like koalas, flamingos and pandas. The Kobe Luminarie may not look impressive during the day, but it becomes a spectacular light show in the evening. It was built in the 90s after the Great Hanshin Earthquake to bring some joy back to the people of the area. If you love baseball, you can watch the Orix Buffaloes play a home game in the Nippon Professional Baseball League.
You'll land on a small island off the coast of the city when you fly to Kobe Airport (UKB). You can get to the mainland by taking a relaxing ride on one of the ferries, or you can take a bus or a train. The summer months are a great time to visit Kobe because the weather is typically between 71 and 75 degrees.
