Kobe Port Tower

After Osaka we stopped over for a day out in Kobe, before heading off to spend the 2nd week of our Japan trip at Y’s parents house :)

Kobe is a port city, and if you want to get a good view of the port area, and the surrounding city too, then you should head up Kobe Port Tower ;)

The tower has a pretty cool design made of lattice work that twists around the tower….it looks like some kind of funky lighthouse ^^


The view from the observation deck is brilliant on a sunny day, and you can see right over the city towards the mountains :)

At several points around the lower level of the observation deck there are windows set in the floor, that let you look straight down at the ground below ^^

Unfortunately the glass is a little worn now, so it’s not so clear when looking through it…..but it’s still a fun feature that gives you an idea of how high up you really are ;)
