Kobe In 1 Day: Osaka Day Trips | Japan Travel Guide

1 day Japan travel itinerary guide on what to do and eat in Kobe. Kobe is under an hour away from Kyoto and Osaka, so it makes the perfect day trip as well.

Kobe is very well known for their famous Kobe Beef, however this city has much more to offer than just that. In this video let me show you how to travel around Kobe efficiently and visit the must see places in just one day.

1 day in Kobe is enough to see the main areas of the city, however if you want to do more activities like hiking, going to the onsen or more hands on cultural experiences then a few days would be better.

Also, If you have more days to spend here then I definitely recommend checking out more of the local areas and back streets!!!

Things to do in Kobe city, Japan:

JR Shin-Kobe Station
Shin-Kobe Ropeway
Nunobiki Waterfall
Nunobiki Herb Gardens
Kitano District (Ijinkan foreign residents houses)
Sannomiya Station
Steakland Kobe Beef
Nankinmachi Kobe China Town
Meriken Park
Kobe Great Hanshin Earthquake Memorial Park
Kobe Maritime Museum
Kobe Port Tower
Kobe Harborland
Kobe Cruising
Mosaic Shopping Mall
Kobe City Hall 24th Floor Free View

Lovely city. I actually did almost everything that you showed on the video on my 1-day trip to Kobe as well! I would be interested if you ever have the chance to do something similar for Fukuoka. It's not talked about as much and it'd be interesting to get your opinion on it and hidden spots etc.

the earthquake museum cafeteria is amazing <3 great Chinese

Kobe is Amazing.
Your voice sounds a bit tired. Is everything okay?
Also, question: What do you think about Japanesepod101?

Author skyblue hippie ( ago)
i watched a culinary vlog abt kobe and the host said there wasn't much to see in the city. but thanks to you i now think it's very worth visiting. since i'm going to japan in september. do you think the herb garden is still worths visiting? thanks.

Author Anne Nguyen ( ago)
Thank you for posting this Day Trip video for Osaka! I also like the fact that you did this on foot instead of taking the bus around the city and provide the time line for where you were at at each location. :)

Author dkb ( ago)
Hi! Can you pls recommend websites or apps that have good reviews or ratings for restaurants in japan? I've heard of tabelog but I can't understand japanese. And it would also be helpful if you could teach us the easiest way to reserve restaurants in japan since the line is usually very long. Thank you!

Author Blablito86 ( ago)
Your videos are so inspiring!! I recently was blessed to visit Tokyo and Kyoto with my husband I loved your city and the my favorite part the people! You are all so kind and polite! Hope we can return some day!! Although I discovered your videos after my trip I love them wish I discover your channel before!!!

Author MrBaldSUPERMAN ( ago)
I had the same exact problem with my old iPhone. More than likely the battery is corroded and you just have to get a new one for your battery to start working like normal.

Author andy hsu ( ago)
Thanks Angela! Could you please do a Hakone video next?

I had Kobe beef in Tokyo. I spent like 80 NZD on it. Tasty but not cheap!

Author Marcus McGowan ( ago)
Haha "What more could I ask for on a... What day is it?

Author Jd Correa ( ago)
how hard is it to travel around japan, without knowing Japanese.

Author DogaTv ( ago)
Your music choice is always on point! Teach me, Sensei!!

Author jenny mai ( ago)
Happy Birthday.

Great video. It make me want to visit Kobe! I need to review my planning!

Author Der Zurechtweiser ( ago)
8:41 I once went to such a weird restaurant where you watch the cook do his job. It's a weirdly gay thing, I felt pretty uneasy. Do you look the guy in the eye, look away while he is heating your food right in front of you? Reminds of those weird japanese hotels I once saw on a youtube video where you can get a prostitute to hug you and use a q-tip in your ears

Ah! How did you know?! Your timing is perfect! I am about to visit Kobe for a week, and this video is immensely helpful. Also... properly chuckled aloud in places :) #romanticlovebell

Author Jamal Mohamed-Isa ( ago)
looking forward to future kansai vids as I will be living in Toyooka :) Have you been to Arima onsen? Not far from Kobe

Author astsang ( ago)
Great video! Thanks for making it. The only thing I saw on my 1.5 day trip to Kobe that was not listed in your video is the large Tetsujin-28-go statue (Gigantor). It is in Wakamatsu Park which is a short 5 minute walk from Kobe's Shin-Nagata Station.

Author dammbleth2 ( ago)
If it's beef and it's in Kobe, then it's Kobe-beef, right? Angela, would you say that you were mislead about that? A little false advertising, maybe? Feel free to be blunt.

Author Mark Matsuoka ( ago)
Can I make another request? How about Nara? Everyone knows about the deer, but maybe you could talk about the lesser known stuff, such as the guy who is famous for making mochi super fast at Nakatanidou?

Author xxchris ( ago)
Love the video as always ❤

Author vicktor vic ( ago)
I guess you need to replace your iPhone battery 😅

Author Kevin Yong ( ago)

Author brielle8383 ( ago)
What an absolutely beautiful place. Thank you so much for sharing this, it was very informative and inspirational. I never thought of going to Kobe before, but now I think I would like to visit there.

Author gelato2005 ( ago)
Hi. Good video. If you have an iPhone 6S, there was a battery defect with some batches of phones. Apple will pay for the battery exchange. This happened to me and Apple exchanged my phone battery for free. Check with the Apple Store.

Thank for everything.  Me and my family just returned after our week vacation in Tokyo.  You and your videos helped us plan and really enjoy our trip.  Planning next year already.  Tokyo is too big.  Impossible to see even half of it in a week. Food and people was awesome. BEST THANKS

Author BeachsideYeti ( ago)
Totally made my day. Thanks for mellowing me out.

Author Jason Fontanoz ( ago)
Awesome vlog! Thank you.

Author Jon Lenvik ( ago)
When i took that shinkansen, i made mistake of not reserving a right hand seat. so i didn't see Fuji. :-\

Author karismatichick ( ago)
Very informative! Great video!

Author AzuMentch36 ( ago)
4:40 - 5:07 Oh, the follies of relying so much on gadgets to navigate through the country. That's another bad thing about Touchwiz and- Wait, did you say IPHONE? Now I'm completely lost! Erm...Go for the Kyocera Duraforce Pro? I know the Verizon Wireless version has a sapphire display and 3 gigs of RAM. I don't know which Japanese network has that version.

Anyway, this is a good itinerary for one day in Kobe. I'm not the type who would get near the Kobe beef but the Kitano district is highly recommended! I still think one needs to book a hotel in Kobe. There's a lot of great things to see and do in this city and its environs. I'm wondering if a baseball game in Koshien Stadium counts, as that is just outside Kobe.

I am going to Kobe next month! Can't wait! Great timing with the video. :D

Author Travel Panda ( ago)
Just wanted to let you know I featured you on my channel. I really enjoyed watching your videos. The information that you provide is very concise and transparent. Thank you. :)

Author Chịp Kino ( ago)
Do you often go to idol concert? Recently there are more and more idol groups from Korea to Japan to hold concerts, can you tell us about how people see and enjoy those ?
Btw, I just bumped into your channel 2 hours ago and already loved it. Keep it up your work ( ' v ' ) /

What is japan like for a solo traveler?

Author Tina Do ( ago)
Awesome video! I am planning to visit there. I have a question: you used the bullet train from Tokyo, did you have to buy a ticket to go back? Is there a JR ticket office in Shin-Kobe station or do I need to buy a return ticket for a specific time at whatever station I bought the initial ticket from? I am planning to go from Osaka station but I am a little confused about the return process using a bullet train especially when Shin-Kobe station is "smaller" than Osaka station. Thank you!

Author Joseph Carangui ( ago)
Beautifully edited video! Kobe will definitely be a 町 I check out when I visit 日本!

Why is the price to travel from Tokyo to Kobe so high?

Author robbie025 ( ago)
kobe is awesome. we went there last year, on our way to Osaka.

Author Nikolas Suarez ( ago)

I'm traveling to japan in September/October and love watching your videos because it so helpful for me to learn things and get ideas of place to travel.

Author AristotleStagira ( ago)
What more could I ask for? To see you in a black spandex bodysuit!!!

Author camila, mina e edu Nakamura ( ago)
Great job! Beautiful places , I will definitely put on my list to visit Kobe next time ! Thank you for all the tips on this video !

Author Zipp4Everyone ( ago)
Yeah $2.400 for a kilo of A5 wagyu is definitely expensive, however if thats the price you have to pay for the best meat in the world...

Author franksrealsport ( ago)
You need to get a battery pack for your phone. Loved the vid!

Author Erin Marie ( ago)
Wow this video is simply fantastic. Such beautiful shots and useful travel information. Awesome job Angela!

Author Yippie ( ago)
Wow, you have a lot of energy. You did so much in just one day. ;)

Perfect timing! I''ll be doing a day trip in Kobe as part of my trip in a few weeks :D

Author soundrolling ( ago)
The Kobe Tourism website has vouchers you can print off to get discounts to all those attractions. I'm using it when I go to Kobe in April :)

Author Maria Le ( ago)
My phone would die at 50% too! You need to go to the Apple Store and have them replace the battery. There was a defect in one of the batches they made starting October '15.

Thank you for your videos! I'm going to Japan in July and I'm super excited!

Author juandenz2008 ( ago)
Great video Angela ! Thanks for all your hard work filming and editing your videos ! Having your phone die was a blessing in disguise, because you can interact more with friendly local people that adds to the charm of your video.

Author Arif Jehda-oh ( ago)
Batteri problem might be if the enviroment is cold it cools the batteri so i dies.

Author eric osborne ( ago)
I love your reactions to things, like that bell! lol You have a wonderful personality. I only found your channel 2 weeks ago and I've already watched all your vids haha

Author Nickolas Miller ( ago)
holy crap that was really good

Author Jaryd Weiss ( ago)
Hey FYI, I had an iPhone that started doing what you described in your video. Turned out the battery had a bad sector, so it would keep a charge until it went to that sector (around 50% or less), and would just die. Apple shops can get you a new battery for like $100, I think. I ended up just getting a new phone, though.

Author Arian Ababafha ( ago)
I freakin love you and your videos! Will be going to Japan in a months time and all your video will definitely help me while roaming around :) keep it up and more power to you!

Author ruben hernandez ( ago)
my japanese teacher is from Kobe its pretty cool seeing the place she grew up at. :)

Author StrikeFreedom1920 ( ago)
Wow Kobe does look like a nice place to visit. I love the ride up the mountain and that beef made my mouth water lol Next time you may want to take a power pack for your IPhone just in case and I also heard that there was an issue with IPhones regarding the battery so you may want to make sure that you're on the latest version of IOS =) Thanks as always for the great quality videos 😊
