Kobe Chinatown

In Japan, there are Chinatowns. Three of the most famous and popular are in port cities of Yokohama, Nagasaki, and Kobe.

On Tuesday, I had a chance to visit the one in Kobe, also known as Nankin-machi.

It is not such a big area, but a charming little place. I had a nice bowl of noodle soup for lunch at a restaurant called Minsei.

Here's the map of Kobe Chinatown.

Hey, that is not a person, but a mannequin in front of a potsticker stand!
