Kobe Harborland is a large-scale collection of facilities, including the giant shopping mall Umie, which hosts a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as Kobe Anpanman Children’s Museum, movie theaters, and hotels.
The view from Harborland at night is also popular for its romantic atmosphere!
Out of all Harborland’s attractions, however, the most popular is the Port Tower. From the tower’s observation deck you can see the entirety of Kobe through the panoramic view. As the tower itself is also a beautiful landmark, it is known as the “Beauty of Towers.”
In addition, every day several passenger ships, called “Concerto,” depart from Harborland. Passengers can enjoy the ride with meals and music! It is also possible to rent a ship for wedding ceremonies.
