Kobe always creates us a resplendent, exotic mood that the cosmopolitan city has. The old foreign settlement where sophisticated modern architecture still remains upper town must be the reason to ferment that atmosphere. At Meriken Wharf, you can hear the whistles of ships and touch the cultural history in this city. The beautiful natural landscape of both mountains and sea provide stunning view in the morning, evening and at night. Visiting the old foreign settlement and you can understand why Kobe is called cosmopolitan city.
