A shopping district with a European aesthetic
When staying at Hotel Crown Palais Kobe of if you are just visiting the city then Harborland (or Harbourland) is the place to go for all your shopping and dining needs. Built on the former site of a Japanese National Railways freight depot in 1992, this more recently developed shopping district gives the city an aura much different from it’s Kansai neighbors. With a primarily European design you might even forget you’re in Japan. Located in Kobe’s port, enjoying some retail therapy or a bite to eat with a Pacific sea breeze in the air is what makes this area of the city a great place to spend the day. Mosaic is the main host of restaurants in the district and closet to the harbor. With a huge selection of various cuisines available you may just find yourself stuck for choice. Harborland also has its own Ferris wheel as well as the Kobe port tower so getting a great vantage point over the city and surrounding mountains couldn't be easier.

Light-Up of Akashi Strait Bridge
Illumination of the world's longest suspension bridge
This is the last story of my Hyogo Prefectural Maiko Park Series.
I visited this park on October 19th, 2014. After I joined the tour to climb to the top of the Great Akashi Strait Bridge, I wrote in one of the stories that I had two more objectives I wanted to achieve. One was to capture the sunset of Akashi, and the other was to see this illuminated bridge.
The illumination goes just after the sunset till 11 P.M. on weekdays, and till midnight on weekends and holidays. There are various patterns of illumination, and the gorgeous view of the illuminated bridge lit up by colorful LED lights will delight your eyes.
Although I left before midnight, I enjoyed my relaxing holiday in the Hygo Prefectural Maiko Park.
