Day 5 - Osaka/Kyoto/Kobe Trip 2017 - Kobe Part 3 - Kobe Motomachi Shopping Street and kobe beef lunch
After touring Kitano, we went back to bus stop no. 10 and board the city loop bus(take note of the time of arrival of bus at the bus stop). Our next stop is Nankinmachi (Chinatown) and Motomachi Shopping Street. We should alight at Bus Stop No. 15. The Bus stop is directly beside Daimaru Department Store. Crossed over the road from Daimaru Department Store, we can see Motomachi Shopping Street, Chinatown is the next street to Motomachi Shopping Street. First, let me post photos of Motomachi Shopping Street. Just like most shopping street in Japan, is sheltered long shopping street. Cheap shoes for sale, but take note is not made in Japan. Saw this nice pastry shop, has a story to the shop. Read from website. There's a nice cozy restaurant at the basement inside the shop entrance. When in Kobe, we must eat kobe beef, saw the menu, price and picture looks good. I had the stew beef with rice, while hubby had the steak. They really tasted so good especially the stew beef, no strong beef smell. The set comes with salad, bread (very soft and nice bread, served hot) and the main course.
