Getting around

Public transport

Kōbe is small enough to travel around on foot. JR, Hankyū and Hanshin railway lines run east to west across Kōbe, providing access to most of Kōbe’s more distant sights. A subway line also connects Shin-Kōbe station with Sannomiya station (¥200, two minutes). There is also a city loop bus service that makes a grand circle tour of most of the city’s sightseeing spots (per ride/all-day pass ¥200/600). The bus stops at both Sannomiya and Shin-Kōbe stations; look for the retro-style green buses.
