Kobe : Michelin's recommendations
Less damaged than neighbouring Osaka by the bombs in 1945, but severely hit by the earthquake in 1995, Kobe has risen from the ashes. To complement the peaks of Mt Rokko, the city has developed with a thoughtful plan for urbanism. Kobe is a pleasant place to live, a good size and with broad views over the sea - traits which have been attracting expatriates from Europe, the US, China etc since the late 19C. Each contingent has its own district, and the modern seafront is the showcase of a creative city, which loves design, fashion and contemporary art.
