Show Video

In this video I'm gonna show you guys my, top 10 things to do in Co Bay. So. Kobe is most well-known for Kobe. Beef but there's actually a lot more to do here, so from Osaka station Kobe, is only about a 30 to 45, minute train ride that's so if you're visiting Osaka, it might be kind of a cold day trip or weekend trip to visit Kobe, as well so in this video I'm gonna cover some things to do in Kobe as well as where to eat some Kobe beef and before I start if you want to help support the channel definitely check out my Tokyo merch and if you want to see what I'm doing either daily definitely. Check out my Instagram account alright fasten your seat belts because I'm gonna take you on a ride through Kobe. Number. One shopping. Streets shopping. In Kobe is ubiquitous well, luckily it's all within walking distance when, you first arrive at Sun Omiya station you'll, be greeted by department, stores like Sogo and marui but if you're into more local shopping scenes that then is a must-have enter into the shopping straits also known as a shooting guide so Kobe has a bunch, of shopping streets the one behind me is called in with the muddy Shore tank guy and it's one of the biggest shopping streets, in kobane, the other one that's pretty large is sannomiya, sent the guy in fact there's a plethora of shopping, streets and scattered, throughout Kovach, what's nice about most, of them is that they have a covered, area so you can walk around even, though it's raining all, within the same area there shoten guys like you could erode sanchita toll, road and coca shoten guy and now I'm under the coca show that guy and you can see it's a quite narrow work there's just a lot of stuff here as well if you want to check it out and don't think they have the newest shops here but it's, still interesting enough, and just. On the west side and the honky you, have a show thing guy that's filled with Eva kaya's little, restaurants, and just a little bit of like drinking bars that you might want to check out what's really nice is that all of the shopping streets and department, stores are all, within walking distance so, if, you're really looking to do a shopping day then, definitely easy to do it here and to be honest I kind of prefer the shopping here compared, to places like Osaka, where. It's just a super, super crowded the streets here are not as busy, comparatively. Speaking, so. This area right here is, right by the coal basin Omiya station it's, actually in fact right next to it and it's known to have a lot of coal based a teppanyaki, shops, it's also right next to took your hands in this video I'm not gonna be showing you all of these places because I think it requires a, full dedicated, video for that but I will so be showing you so my top spots to have some Kobe beef here anyways, let me just show you a little bit around this area so we're the deaths of the coab a steak jungle, oh wow. Look. There's. Even a Spider Man right there I guess he's looking for some Kobe beef as well, number. Two go, baby from him he is Ella if you're looking for a nice bowl of ramen but, also want to enjoy your Kobe beef then, this is gonna be the spot and you don't have to go to the most expensive, place in the world to have a nice, cool baby it's so unique because it takes a ramen and Kobe, beef two things that I love and puts it all together let's, go inside and let me show you there's. Always ramen is definitely, one of a kind the broth is made from a five Kobe, beef bone and vegetables, produced in Kyoto that brought itself makes a full 16 hours to mature I threw down on the creamy she'll ramen which comes with Kobe beef rare steak meat miso and Kobe beef see me on the side while Michael won with the show ramen with a tender Kobe beef steak topping interesting, fact all soups are made from the same ingredients, that utilize, a different method, of cooling to alter the taste and texture.

That's. Tremendous. The froth itself it looks really, really creamy but, in fact it's quite light because almost like an are refreshing and brought the onions give it like a nice spring, flavor basically, the first thing is we're gonna add Kolbe a rare, meat to, it you're, nuts let's add it for too long or, also get fully cooked so just gonna like dip, it in it, so let's have a bite of this. Wow. The, meat flavor. Sensations. That's getting me out of my seat I don't. Know where I'm going but it's getting me out of my seat, so so excited, I have my chopsticks, backwards, it's inductive I just, added and miso right, to it and it's giving it a little like darker kind of look. Mmm. Better. Than this but gives it kind of like a grounded. Beef kind of taste this makes it even more meaty, absolutely. Ordered, on the side and some, home baby, sushi. And, so there's three levels here you can get economy which is kind of red you, can get the chooklotto which is like the middle fatness, and you get that a crime Kobe beef sirloin but for 160th, 2,400. EMM that's a little bit steep for me to take so I'm just gonna go at 800, yen that's for one so Maiko is actually gonna get the other one unless she doesn't want it and I'll heat the second one. I. Get. The marble, in that made this is straight up all, the, but some wasabi on top I'm gonna go Santos on this and just put on the gauntlet and the Snapple. Is, definitely, a rich piece of meat you can taste all that fat and olive oils, melting. On your tongue. Number. Three bilko, son jarocho son also known as Mount Rocco offers, the best panoramic. View of Kobe and Osaka from sannomiya station it takes about 20, to 25 minutes to get to the bottom of rooks on cable station and it's about a 10 minute ride up the cable car to get to the observatory. Right. Now actually. Pretty cool looking it's just so beautiful riding this cable, car right now all right we made it to the top let's, go check out the view. Wow. So, check me out I'm on top of the world I, love, this place you, can see that kobe isn't very much on the ocean you can see that it's just surrounded. By ocean it's a fun little fact for you guys if you ever are here and you ask a local for, directions, they. Don't usually use north, and south they just use a mountainside, in Seaside, mountainside, being north in seaside being south so that behind, me is south and we are north another thing worth noting is that you can come here during the evening while, the city is all lit up and it's also a beautiful sight so you can enjoy during the day and you can also enjoy it at night kind of a romantic spot so maybe if you fellas out there are looking for a romantic spot to take your girl this could be the spot in fact just, this, area here there's not just this, observatory. There's quite a few restaurants as, well as things, to do there's like a botanical, garden there's even a kind of a ropes entry course that you can go to we won't be doing that in this video but, there's quite a lot to do up here as well so not just observatory, but if you wanted to kind of spend half a day here and you definitely could if you wanted to. Number. Four Adam, owns in so, if you're already in Kobe then IV my own scent is a must-visit spot, for those owns and lovers you can simply hop on a bus from San Damiano station or Kobe station and you'll be there in less than an hour in fact.

And, Is known as one of the top three on cents in all of Japan there are many hotels in the area but I enjoyed seeing at Hyo a all yoku the hotel has a seven, hundred year history offering. Several different ons and options and also serves a beautiful, tricycle. One. Thing that I truly loved was the in-room Piasecki dinner experience a classic, email it basically means that you get a little bit of everything served, in small dishes and often, with seasonal ingredients oh wow, look. At this that is a lot of kanji you can't read it it just means there's gonna be a lot of food today like seafood right in front of me apparently, is not all there's just like so much more to come and have it all nice and done, look we have some soba, noodles there, this is the toppings, here and then you put the soup on top check, out that concession, plate I think that's Thai right there you have some Abby maguro. Right, there. It has all these like little appetizers. But. The thing I'm most excited about, we're in copyright to this will. Be beef can, you guys just see, the marbling, and, that beef. Coil. Cookie use a select, cream of quality coal a beef but those not familiar with, Kobe beef it's known for its fine textured meat fibers and marbling, it's nothing point as low so it doesn't get too heavy. Nothing. Like a sizzling, piece of meat I certainly like a little bit of rare so I don't cook it all the way through but the lady says that some, of you cook like the hotter parts you're good and so. That looks. Good to me to be honest I don't know if you guys can see that but that is the Kobe, beef cooked. To, perfection. Oh. That. Is tremendous. As one of the most tender beads I've ever had I just can't stop smiling because the, meat is so good, blown away by this meal thing, is if you guys really want to know how the smooth taste then you just gonna have to come here I'll leave with the link in the description so you guys can make, your own reservation, and check this place out. And. The, oats and that psycho yo Kaku are pretty dope with a traditional, Japanese stylings and there's even private baths for those who. Like to keep it private, it's. Just so relaxing I'm nobody long center and it's such a nice day thank you it's so funny like you can see this water ground, effect, it's, supposed, to be really, good for your skin oh and, don't forget to check out the street food in the area during your stay I just, can't help myself I always gotta try the street food. Well. That's a nice fluffy. Texture, but it also has some indented, into it in fact I thought it was gonna be cheesy but it's not that cheesy which is still pretty good oh. I, brush for brush. I. Was. Like yeah. This. Is amazing, this is is great you can walk around in fact there's a lot of walking trails here so if you're like into hiking you, wanna see some nature then this is actually a good place to go yeah it's like it's actually a good place if you want to just get away from the city and relax a little bit so we've just walked up this little hill and this area here is suppose really against in meaning this is where the original onsen.

Water Comes from let. Me show you right. There just. Like steaming it's crazy and just, right next to it there's a temple, literally this is a place so you just want to walk around and explore. Number. Five qqg. When Kobe opened its international, port in 1868. This foreign settlement, was constructed, designed by British civil engineers the hundred and twenty-six blocks were auctioned, to Western foreigners, unfortunately. Seventy percent of the buildings were destroyed after the World War two air raids in 1945. But Kobe City decided to preserve the remaining buildings as cultural, properties, known as QQ cheese it's now home for luxury brands in western cafes personally, it's not my bag but Japanese locals enjoy walking this area as it feels very much like a western country. Number. Six Chinatown. 19 machi so, if you're visiting Co Bay one of the must business, spots is monkey machi also, known as Chinatown, so it's a smaller Street it's not as big as your common Tokyo, but, it's definitely worth the visit especially if you're looking for some street food and that's, why we're here today monkey, machi is the area of Kobe where Chinese were forced to settle after the Kobe port opened as they, were not allowed in the qqg, area settlement, monkey much he was also burned down during World War two so the area went into a dark period after the war but again we built in the 70s into the non-key machi as we know today 90 machi is one of three, major China towns in Japan along with the Oklahoma and Nagasaki. I found that Kobe Shinedown has more takeout shops and all-you-can-eat restaurants, so it's a perfect place to get your street food on. Let's. Try, this bad, boy in, fact it's a breakfast, right now this is my breakfast I haven't eaten anything all morning, straight, off the steamer, she was just cutting the duck fresh, right. Now and it has cucumber. Mmm. You can smell the sweet sauce for, me to go by. No. We, are in Chinatown, we have a ride that's. Delicious. It definitely tastes a sweetness, of the sauce, the meat is very flavorful you can tell that the duck was just cut this morning the veggies, are really. Really crunchy, the sauce itself gives it like it brings it back down with the sweetness it's almost like a Chinese burrito and so check out this place behind me is called Rio shogi it's already ten o'clock in the morning and there's just, the longest, line in the world it has some of the most delicious aroma but definitely, think we need to decade a full video for this so we're not gonna do it today but if you guys come here then definitely this pot is worth checking out, number. Seven you cut satay you, cut satay is a small, shop hidden in the basement of this old shopping mall san plaza so. This spot doesn't have Kobe beef but I just love it so much that I had to include it don't worry you won't be disappointed, if you guys are looking for a quick view cuts a place this is my recommendation, and check out whether, the meat what I love about this place is that you get like three different sauce you get a demi-glace, sauce ponzu. Otoshi sauce onsen, tamago sauce, and you get like a spicy, tomato sauce into, the goo katsu it's still red in the middle meat, is really nice and it's like crunchy. On the outside. What, I love the most is that you get like the nice tender, juicy. Moist. Meat. Center. And, then you have the nice crunchy, shell. What, a fantastic. Meal you dip it into some egg and then you put it on top of your rice like this. And. Look at that, combination. Just. A little piece of happiness of every single bite. Number. Eight the bay area so, we just arrived at home base station, it's only a few minutes from sannomiya and more than watching area and there's just so, much stuff to do here there's shopping malls it's, right by the ocean and I'm kind of psyched to walk around this area Harbor land is just in front of Kobe station you can also walk from Sonoma and Motomachi station as well, so. We're entering Kobe, harbor land right now and check, out this ceiling. That's. Amazing, right. So. This is MEA, you can see it's quite an expensive mall, look behind me how much this space, there is and this huge, main, corridor, here divides. The north and the south sides, of the mall there are quite a few malls here in this area but this is one of the larger ones so if you don't have a lot of time and you want to do your shopping in this area and this would be my recommendation, Lumia, is your garden-variety shopping, mall where you can find many fast fashion shops and domestic, brands you can walk through Mia tours ocean to get to mosaic where, you can find restaurants, to the open, space and.

They Even have a much a house here if you guys see my coated video you know they have a bunch of tiramisu you can also get it here in kobane so this is the mosaic area, in Harbor City so you can see here to my right there's, actually the harbor and this whole area is just littered, with restaurant. Famous places like one my left eggs and things be, could a donkey, they have Starbucks just like so many different, places also, has kind of like that Odaiba Dex kind of feel very much more relaxed, and if you're just looking to get some food and this is probably a good spot to do it and you can also enjoy the ocean I don't know like for me there's just something, about being. By the ocean, smelling. The fresh sea water just, like over there yonder, you can see the mountains which is kind, of like very, relaxing. I don't know what do you guys think and right now do you see that boat behind me it's called concert', oh it's, a two-hour ride and, and they play jazz on the teppanyaki dinner, cruise it's, pretty dope and for the kids there's even an oompa museum here a ferris, wheel and a little biking mount playground. So. This area feels a very much similar to kind of like a smaller version of yokohama but the one thing I really like about it you get all of like the good parts of Yokohama but you don't get all of the crowds I mean look, at this area it's a Saturday, middle. Of the day and look at all of this open space look, there's even a cute little Starbucks, right here right by the harbor. So. This is American park you can see there's not a whole lot to do here but kind of children relax by the harbor you can see to my right there's a Bicol bay sign over there where you can take pictures of and the park itself it looks like at the moment they're renovating and you can actually go on the pole grounds, cuz it's like just still dirt but on the outer skirts here like right behind me right here you can just like hang out guess you would just consider this a chill spot. So. You may also come across the cove a brick warehouse nearby it's pretty cool for a stack of bricks but there are many sorts of you don't have much time it's probably okay to skip. Number. 9 Kobe beefs sketchy, at Ishita, so Kobe beef can be in so many different ways and at this spot you're able to choose from shabu shabu yakiniku. Or sukiyaki, today. I'm gonna do one my favorites I'm gonna do its keyaki, but you're gonna have that in two other options as well what's nice about this place is all of the tables aren't go sheets in meaning the private, works so, if you have a family, or if you have some friends and you want to just kind of have no privacy you, can do it all in your private room and I don't know if you guys have this in your country but they have a bail server so you just press this Bell and they come when you want it's, perfect so for this video for all intensive, purposes this. Is the ski a key set menu there's actually, the read different, sets that you can get so, we got the kiwami, set it's a most people call maybe in this restaurant and I'm quite excited to, show you guys I don't know if you guys know taste difference but I hopefully I can. See. That fat just marbled, into them meat itself Italy. Sliced. So. The scale key set comes with a hundred and forty grams of thinly sliced Kobe beef sirloin and shoulder vegetables, and appetizers, raw eggs and grinded yams are served as dipping sauces a nicer. Skanky, restaurants expect the server to cut the first round like this place first place a Kobe beef is cooked through the Kobe beef color, then a mix of sake and soy sauce that meeting and two are also having hot water stuff. It's. Best to grab the beef as soon as the meat is brown to avoid overcooking. Afterwards. Cook the vegetables on the pan as it is to soak up all of the Kobe beef flavors, oh the, white Esau is pretty salty usually oh and mixing it with a smooth raw egg it Malden's out the taste to perfection. One. Thing is the raw egg halted, color. And you kind of just like to dip it around and like and. We have our first night. Ah. The. Booth is just so tender it's, then you can feel the fatty like juices, it's not even like meat that's tender. A slice, of heaven that's. What it really feels like eating, right now, we have a lot more pieces of meat to go so I'm, gonna do that again if. You literally do this all day and. Number. 10 Akashi, Aki kokuto. So, we have a Hitachi. Which is basically your Colby version of takoyaki, but it's even a little bit different can see when it's served it comes in like a comic.

A Sushi plate and you can see that it's like almost like, a, blank. Takoyaki. Ball, and then, what you do is you, get the broth and the bottle service is like a regular. Dashi. When, you take it and you dip it in and this is like the first way you should rather dip, it in like that and it gets a little bit moist, oh. That. Broke apart. And you can see how it's breaking apart it's crazy. So. What you'll find is that this version is almost, more like a pancake I think I've ever had a fluffy pancake before it's, a lot more fluffy, and airy than your regular takoyaki. What. You can also do is add a sweet takoyaki, sauce on, top and, then, dip it into the dashi soup if you like a little stronger taste you might like this better and, you. Just dip it in just. Like so. That's. What I'm talking about so this place here it's pretty much a place to like hang out with your friends I'd like to have a drink and they have some vodka sake like this is more like it generally a drinking place so it doesn't open, until 5:00 in the afternoon but, it closes that three, a.m. so, if you're having a long night in your partying then definitely stop, by this place alright so that concludes my, guide of Cove a if you'd like to help me out and hit that like button if you want help support the channel then definitely check out the Tokyo merch and if you want to see more of my Japan guides I released, a video every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. Japan time so hit that subscribe button and the bubblin and I'll catch you guys in the next one.

You are so cute!!! :)

Thanks for coming to my hometown, Kobe. i just want you guys to know that ppl are not allowed to climb up the KOBE sign for the safety. many ppl do that to take picture but the sign gets dirty and broken. Volunteers in Kobe clean up the sign. Make sure not to climb up!! (tho ppl do that in the video!!)

7:55 I can read it, this’s the bill. Very expensive

Honestly, Kobe wasn't in my list until this video which shows the quiet sights like cable car surrounding areas.

I was so hungry while watching thisssd

Thanks for the video! You have a new subscriber.

More of kobe beautiful spots

raw egg? that's disgusting

Not disgusting! It tastes good! A lot of Japanese rice bowls have raw egg on the side. You have to pour the raw egg while the food is still hot and then mix it! Delicious!

Too late I've already visited Kobe in January, lol =P You didn't went to the Hanshin Awaji Earthquake Memorial thought you would also the Kobe foreign settlement love the architecture of the houses which turn into businesses =)

I would be totally lost with in which order to do what when eating there. I had no idea what to do with what when they serve so many things at wants. I also couldn't ask anybody cuz they don't speak English.

loves your channel ... can you please do a how to buy a Japanese house

You should do something on Wagyu Beef. You should also go to a Soy Sauce factory and use the like "Let Me Show You" because it's called Shoyu.

have a great week guys!

You are amazing Paolo. Right now we are enjoying our 2nd trip in Japan and we are using your videos a lot, they are just perfect

Chinatown are there still chinese living there? Not used to chinatowns we don't have them in NZ, we just have more Asian restaurants japanese, korean and chinese all together nit separated.


Omg i just went to kobe today We went to rokkosan, and did the forest adventure., I recommend that place to everyone

Japan sort of like NZ we are close to the ocean as well no place in nz that far away from the ocean. Landsize similar to Japan but way less populated.

Looks like a nice city :)

Love Kobe - I want to go again - I was in a rush when I visited before.

kobe is one of my favourite places in japan, and yet so many people don’t bother visiting.

I was at the restaurant with Spiderman on the roof. Was the fist time I ate Kobe Beef. I wasn´t sure which restaurant I should go to and I think I choose this one, because it had lots of certificates and thropies in the window. I also liked the cow waiter stature at the entrance. The beef wasn´t as expencive as I expected and the best I ate so far. It was soooooo おいしい!

神戸紹介していただいてありがとうございますm(_ _)m ぜひ神戸にみなさんきてくださいね

I've been living in Kobe for over 5 years. You blow me away with how spot-on you are on everything. We definitely don't use north and south here. (There are basically no train lines going north or south, so when you exit the station you know which way you're going depending on wether you can see the mountains or not.)

I love your videos you have so much history of the places. I am sorry but I could never ever eat meat not cooked well done like I need so well done.!! Have a great week ( Judy ) Thanks for all you do to being things to us that otherwise someof us could never go there

Excellent as always, thank you Paolo and Maiko!

I like Kobe, didn't know there was a place called Kobe know knew about Kobe beef. Thank you for your vlogs. You do a great job

Hey Paolo, your videos are very helpful and you let me learn and know more about Japan especially Tokyo, I really want to meet in Tokyo I'll head to it next week :)

You forgot WANTO Burger, totally recomend

Thanks for the great video. I would like to mention that if you are taking kids along on the trip, don't miss out on "Kobe Animal Kingdom". I planned on spending only half a day there, but ended up leaving right before the premise was just about to close. :)

Hey Paolo !! Love your videos

man, korea looks just like japan, but not as nice. the people act more like chinese than japanese tho

Way too anion. A

We were in Tokyo last week for 4 days and tried some of the places you recommended in Shibuya ... 4 days is way too short . we love Japan and hope to be back soon. We enjoy watching your channel ;-)

Hello Paolo! Do you know where to buy cheapest instant noodles store in tokyo? Ive been looking for MACHURAN SEIMEN noodles. i hope you can refer a store where I can buy it for pasalubong. Thanks!

Loved Kobe. Took some pics there.

I live in Kobe!!!

納得できない店が数店あったが、、 仕方ない。 それも、受け入れよう。 できれば、喫茶店の西村コーヒーも、入れて欲しかった。

Thanks for the videos. They are great, I am having the opportunity to know more about Japan thanks to them.

Have an awesome trip saharla!

The introduction of your Kobe is like the guidebook of the person who does not know the field at all! At first, from Osaka to Sannomiya, I can come in 22 minutes. Though I introduced Kobe cow ramen, there is Kobe cow of the imitations. You should all think the shop with the figure skating of Spider-Man and the cow to be an imitation in the same system. Though the official manager is a Japanese, the true manager is a Korean. And a price is high because Nankinmachi (Chinatown) there becomes a sightseeing spot. As for the real Chinese food, as for the reason why the local person does not eat in Nankinmachi, it is really easy because a Chinese runs it though I can enjoy it. This is because there are a lot of Chinese restaurants which a Chinese runs near Nankinmachi. This is because there are many shops which that one is more delicious, and are cheap. When it was so high and was popular because there was the friend of the restaurant owner of Nankinmachi, I heard it. Because if hear it when laid 言 when is popular, and repeat, come only once anyway; くったて-affiliated ボッタ; it was said, and said. Therefore the shop where reputation is showy should post overambitiousness. Because even if the shop with the ability does not do reputation loudly, a visitor comes. A foreigner particularly a Chinese and the Korean think about though I run the shop in a standard whether oneself makes a profit, how the Japanese will be pleased with a visitor and run the shop. Though it understands it, it is splendid that a Japanese is funny.

no kitano area?

Hi, do you like electronic dance music (Trance, Techno, RAVE, House, Drum Bass, Club)? That's great app for Android - Enjoy!

神戸はいいとこですよ!僕の出身地ですがみなみだけではなく、北も素晴らしい!Kobe is very beautiful!!

do a okinawa video pls!!!

It's not a bill, just a paper to inform what kind of food they gonna serve. Just it. I think many restaurants do the same, or airplanes sometimes. It's common.

@fatcrewz is that where they did the Initial D movie ?

Your really sweet to your wife, I hope she knows how lucky she is. By the way you have beautiful skin tone.


神戸ってオシャレで美味しい店が多いと思われてるかもしれないけど実際は全然そんな事ない。 関西の番組でも神戸の店は殆どセレクトされないし、神戸人は出かけるなら三宮行かずに大阪行くのが普通。 ハーバーや南京町なんてほとんど観光客と県外の人間しか居ない。来ても損しないのは王子動物園くらい。

Stop by one of the electronics shops pick up a lapel mic...your videos have crappy audio.

My boyfriend and I are loving your videos! We'll be visiting Japan in less than 3 weeks and have been watching your channel daily. THANK YOU for, well, being you!

Thank you for introducing Kobe. KOBE2099. Please see the future of Kobe ♪

I recently visited Japan. Although the country can be very nice to see but Japanese can be very rude..! I got the feeling that some of them do speak English but choose not to, so they just walk away when youtry to ask for directions or about understanding the menus.

Kobe is one, if not my #1 fave of all Japan. Foreigner-friendly, since there are a few groups that live there, but really a Japanese travel destination because it's so close to the Ocean and mountains and Osaka. You covered my favorite places so well. Thanks for the vid.

yazaya is good! I will go occasionally too.

長田のぼっかけそばも食うてや〜 うまいでえ

I lived there for almost 2 years and maybe going back next year

I watch you channel and I love japan lot

Hi I like you video I will go Japan next year how do I go first

Arvin Bernabe Hi

ローストビーフ丼 全国巡り の 旅

I am on the bing watching your videos as I miss Japan and just realised that your wife doesn't give a fck at all :D

OMG that duck! I'm going back to Osaka soon but only got 3 days. Hopefully I can sneak in sometime for Kobe.

Hey Paolo, good content. Can you do a series on Japanese narrow homes?? Thanks

This is the city where Studio Ghibli's "Grave of the Fireflies" takes place. Damn.

Wow. I live in Kobe and have not seen some of this stuff. Great video - thanks!

Kobe bay is where my husband proposed to me :)

I have been living in Kobe for over 10 years and you showed most for sure, so a great job. I did miss you talked a bit about the earthquake.. you went to meriken park so I'm sure you saw the memorial area. Kobe will never forget that. A few days is not enough to cover everything but I recommend Nagata as well as they have many great restaurants. But all in you did an amazing job showing my City to the world ( a bit too much Kobe beef kedo but I guess I'm just envious you eating nice food that much hahaha)

Damn, man. You eat a lot of meat. You need to do a vegetarian video at least once or try to include one vegetarian option in your food videos.

You mean where your boyfriend proposed to you and is now your husband. :P

Sparky Mahoney well, she can say husband now because she is married haha

Lived in Kobe. I really enjoy seeing the places I visited the most. I would mention for a good picture the Tetsujin 28 Statue, also visit a sake brewery is a fun experience and you can also find some good souvenirs and last but not least the Oji Zoo to have a nice walk.

That should be in Hokkaido, they have the best veggies in Japan..sweet potatoes, eggplants, and pumpkin

lol Concert-o. no Paolo. Just no.

I thought it was a city tour tip... But is a only food trip...

Do you need to make reservations for the Sukiyaki place Ishida? Or can you just walk in without one?

The Tokyo area is famous, but looking at the terrain on Google Map I'm guessing the Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe area might be more beautiful.




You literally know the greatness of Kobe more than me, living in Kobe since I was born

We just got back from a 6 week trip around the world. We had Kobe beef in Kobe. It was excellent and quite expensive, but worth it. Motomachi is my favourite shopping street in Japan. The place is much more relaxed that in Tokyo and there are lots of good shops.

Pure bovine meat from mountain farms of exclusive biological nutrition in Greece only costs 18 euro per kilo. Kobe meat is far more expensive.

I need the wagyu video!


Will never get used to that slurping...

Rokko san is good but I prefer Maya san further west from Rokko san. Also at Meriken park, you can go up Kobe Port Tower and right next door is the cool Kawasaki museum with their cool bikes and a full size series zero Shinkansen.

I'm going to Kobe soon to study at one of it's universities for a year, so this video helps a lot :)


ようこそ神戸へいらっしゃいました。 夏には須磨海岸にもお越しになって下さい。 是非こちらもご覧になって下さい。

神戸は観光にはイマイチ突出したものはないけど 住むには最高だゾ

I live in Nishinomiya. Kobe is only 15 minutes away by train. So I often go to Kobe. Kobe is a very enjoyable city. It is a beautiful city with mountains and the sea. There are many fashionable places and downtowns. Thank you for introducing a lot of sights. (Translated by Google)

本当に嬉しいです。 もっと日本のいいところなどを紹介してください!

you American or Japanese? you heve to teach me how I speak English(^-^)

I miss Sannomiya

Hey Paolo! We went to the Kobe Beef Ramen by Yazawa upon your recommendation. May we suggest a more detailed direction on how to get there. We got lost looking for it. Had to show your video to the shop owners near the area.

Paolo, can you do a video on how to budget travel around Japan, like what public transport to take, how far each city is to each other & also the cheapest Accomodation please???

Dudeeeeeeee! Your videos are so damn helpful! I'm obsessed lol. I'm binging man!


I go to Japan for school and I stay in Kobe

本間の神戸を知るならB級グルメな気がする。 いい肉なんか何処でも食えるやろ

I get so hungry watching you....and I grin from start to finish. I'm hoping to visit Japan the next 10 years or so. You're both so sweet. God bless.




I really like your Japanese subtitle. That's awesome.

Thanks for video. Going next week again to help the mother in-law, this rekindled my love for Kobe and made my feelings for the trip something positive as well. So yeah, thanks again.

With a japanese wife and our kids doing it as well(ramen/men, not pasta and other types of food..) and many years of it.. It still rubs me the wrong way as well.

Most of them just really dont understand english. Some are really scared to try to talk as they mainly know how to read and write. For the rest, like any other country, you have the ass holes.

you sound like the tech lead :D

Japanese government must stop hiding the truth about the radioactive contamination all over Japan!!  If you eat food , maybe products Hukushima!!!   Hukushima  rice, for direct transactions between marketing groups and wholesalers, was 10.4% below the national average. Hukushima rice  driven by solid demand for convenience stores and dishes served at   all over Japan restaurants. I’m afraid that  it's really fact!!

Vissel Kobe⚽️

震災前から住んでる生粋の神戸っ子で他所の県知ってるから分かるけど神戸は山も海も温泉も食べ物もあるけど全部三級品や。 それを売りにしとる地域と比較すると二段も三段も落ちる。何に関しても薄く広くっちゅうんが神戸。 住み良い、って言えば住み良いけどハッキリ言うて中途半端な街やねん。旅慣れた人間には確実に物足りん所や。



神戸ビーフはブランドとして有名だから仕方ないと思いますね。 まずは神戸に来てもらう事が大事なのではないかと、 良い意味で高いお肉に飽きてきたら他のものも見てくれると思いますよ。

三宮センター街から神戸駅までの商店街の風景の変化が好きでしょっちゅう歩いてる オラワクワクすッぞ! あとカメラワーク神やな (Awesome camera work)

さんちかはマジでおすすめ 美味い飯屋いっぱいあるで

ww 俺もそう思った

The best beef meat in the world!!!, Come on Paulo!, your making my stomach GROWL. Your tempting me again to go back and visit Japan. kondo nihon ni ikuze!!

How many days is needed to visit all that places in Kobe? Thanks.

17:20 oh my god the little human on the left, so adorable!!


地元が紹介されて、ちょっと嬉しいw 神戸ビーフは美味しいけど、俺の給料では高くて気軽に食べられませんwww

I didn't go to Kobe, and this isn't really related, and I'm not even a Lakers fan, but I saw Kobe Bryant's last game my last day in Japan. Something felt special about it.

牛カツ亭気にはなってたけど、こんな感じなら行ってみたくなった。 ありがとう!

I live in Kobe. Thank you for making this video!

Why am I torturing myself with these food vids of yours Paolo..why?!!! studying nihongo right now hoping that I can go to Japan someday..gaddd i cant wait to try all those foods!

中華街って北京ダックもあったんですね。知らなかった。贅沢だなぁ。 日本人、関西人なのに、すき焼きの山芋だしや、明石焼きのソースと出汁のミックス食べは初めて知りました。

これ以上 観光客来てほしくない

Thank you for this video! It just about brought me to tears. I am from Kobe, but now I live in the US. This video took me home, and brought back happy memories. Many thanks!

いいとこいっぱい神戸! I’m live in KOBE.

HI Paolo. can you guide me on the easiest route to Kobe from Osaka ? From Dotonbori areea

兵庫県民やけど、さらっとすごい距離移動しててちょっと笑ってしまった。笑 兵庫に来てくれてありがとうございます!


神戸紹介してくれてありがとう! 神戸民より色んなとこ知ってるんちゃう?笑

OMG! I've never been to Arima Onsen even though I was born in KOBE!! I'm so grateful that you introduced KOBE as the very fascinating city. Thank U!

Thanks for watching yoko music!

You can find the route and recommend transportation by Google Map.


Kobe beef in Kobe was lifechanging

Very well explained thank you Paolo

Thank you for introducing my hometown! 地元を紹介してくれてありがとう!



地元民だけど、肉やらお土産なんかは他のそこに行かなくても地域でも買えたり食べれたりするもんね今では! やっぱり神戸市でしか食べれない美味しい神戸牛とかを徹底していかないと旅行しに来た感が薄れるもんね! これは神戸牛に限らず、他の特産品やら神戸以外の地域の特産品にも言えることなんですけどね!

Aww, Kobe is my Japanese home town! I lived on the mountain side near Arima. Great to showcase the city, you're making me homesick!


The restaurant with the Spiderman on the wall is Genkichi Kobe Beef. It had the best beef i've ever had and far superior to any of the surrounding cheaper restaurants. The waiter was friendly and gave great advice on what cuts of steak we should try and really great information on what to expect. The chef was warm, friendly and spoke good english. He explained how it was best eaten and how to enjoy the Kobe beef with each condiment. We even got photos with the chef and waiter outside! I can't highly recommend the place enough and it was the highlight of our trip to Kobe.

Hello, a video in nachikatsuura would be very good

I am from KOBE!Thank you for introducing Kobe well. I'm proud as a citizen of the prefecture.

BeardedNerdSE I’d give steakland a miss but Wakkoqu is a good spot!

Thanks for the recommendation, I'm adding it to the list. I was thinking of going to Steakland or Wakkoqu when I visit Kobe, but it's good to have options.

地元の紹介嬉しいっす! welcome to kobe!!


I hope you include the really nice hiking trails in Kobe next time, instead of just eating around. Though they all look so mouth watering!


神戸に住んで18年 1回も神戸牛食べたことない


slurping is disgusting n rude


いい街だよね!神戸! また行きたいな!

Omg! I will def try Ishigaya sukiyaki for my birthday dinner!


地元に住んでるのに知らない店を知ることができて助かりました ありがとう!


I dislike Japanese

Paolo and Maiko, can you do a video on Shizuoka (what to do and eat)? Thank you! ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶

Hi Paolo! Thanks for your informative contents ! Love it! May I know is the kiwami sets (¥8800) price per person?

My goal in life is to afford Kobe beef outings.

This time v is special good.

Hi Paolo, do you have any video for Sapporo or Hokkaido yet?

Kobe is one of the X-Men's territories in the AVX WarGames dojinshi series.

I’ve been to Kobe

Hi Paolo, today I ate the beef katsu that you recommended and it was amazing. Thank you for this video it helped a lot!!

are there KO-[drawing of of a bee] t shirts coming

Hi Paolo. My cousins and I are planning to visit Kobe and Osaka next year around late October and I would just like to find out the ticket price for the onsen experience as well as the price for the hotel you stayed in over at Arima without the dinner and breakfast (I tried searching up on booking websites but it just doesn't show me the price unless I book it.) Please help TTATT

Once you make something soooooo important it becomes your god.....

Been to Japan a couple of times, and still havent seen you and Maiko. Hope i can see you this December in Shinjuku Pao!

KOBE Home for Kawasaki Leisure Bikes

Love your steak BUT damn expensive!

I visited Kobe for a daytrip this year in September and the Nunobiki Herb gardens were my absolute favorite the whole area on top of the mountain and the beautiful way down back to Kobe including the water reservoir were amazing. I think Kitano is a very nice place at Kobe as well we liked it a lot and found it funny that there is a german house so we as germans had to check it out.
