When making the trip to Kobe with a friend I was mostly looking forward to its China town, expecting to stuff myself with all kinds of dumplings, and this is exactly what we did.

Dumplings! Actually, I didn’t eat any at this stand. When I ate mine I was too busy to take any photos, with oil and soup and juices dripping all over me.

From China town, we ventured towards the harbor. The port promenade is fun but is unfortunately cut off from the city by a huge street with a highway on two levels on top of it. It felt weird going from the town towards the sea and having to confront this enormous barrier.
