You might have heard of Kobe Beef, but do you know Kobe Chinatown or Kobe Harbor?

It was about 150 years ago, when the Port of Kobe was one of the first to opened its doors to welcome foreign traders and settlers to Japan. An important historic moment that paved the way for today’s global exchange in the Kansai region. In this video you’ll get a glimpse of the rich history, the cultural diversity and the creative opportunities Kobe City has to offer.
