Kobe Maritime Museum Tours and Tickets

Topped with commanding white steel framework in the shape of ship sails, the Kobe Maritime Museum stands at the center of Meriken Park in Kobe's port area. Travelers can visit to learn about the early history of the Port of Kobe and see historical artifacts and displays on the development over the years, as well as the port's latest features.

Half of the building is devoted to shipping, with a vast collection of model ships, from small to extra large. The outdoor Yamato 1, the first working prototype of its kind, is another special feature, having first successfully operated in the Port of Kobe in June 1992. Meanwhile, the Kawasaki Good Times World section focuses solely on the history, design and manufacturing of products produced by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, a Japanese company with more than 100 years of history. This section is an interactive way for children and adults to experience the technology and manufacturing behind a wide range of products used for land, sea and air.

Private Tour - A Tour to Learn all about the international port city, Kobe!

Private Tour - A Tour to Learn all about the international port city, Kobe!

Kobe is one of Japan's most fashionable areas and known for having an unusual mix of cultures. This walking tour will take you to some of the must-visit places in Kobe alongside a private guide who will help you to better understand KobeÔÇÖs cultural background. Kobe's diverse culture is rooted in its history as a cosmopolitan city that has always adopted and developed new things. Kobe has prospered since the Middle Ages as a key point for domestic shipping, but its role as a residential area was limited and, consequently, there was no indigenous culture to speak of. The opening of the country to the outside world in 1853 led to the establishment of foreign settlements and the influx of Western culture. It absorbed and mixed the foreign cultures that came in with the opening of the country, and nurtured its own unique culture. Today, the city thrives as one of the leading international cities in Japan, thanks to its abundant flow of international cultural exchange.
