About Kobe

Located in Hyogo Prefecture, Kobe has prospered as an international trading port. This means it has been influenced by many exotic foreign cultures over the years.

If you find this kind of western style to your taste, you should come to Motomachi and the Kobe Kitano Museum to see the old foreign style houses. However, Kobe is most famous for Kobe beef. Almost everyone who comes to Kobe has to try the best steak in the world. Kobe also has beautiful scenic spots like Mount Rokkō and the Arima Onsen.

Trip Moments

I haven't arrived at the opening time of the store, but there are already diners waiting in line. After we bought strawberry chocolate at the nearby corner, we continued to return to the burdock because it was only 10 minutes away from the door. After we lined up, the team behind us was getting longer. Fortunately, we ranked in the top ten, when the opening time came, the boss opened the door on time to welcome the guests - settle down every diners, on the tea and add tableware in an orderly manner, and even take care of us to help us collect the stroller. Then the boss began to prepare the ingredients for tonight in his screw-sized kitchen. The phrase "doing the dojo in the snail shell" is a profound insight here, but the place of 2 square meters has become the kitchen of the whole restaurant. This restaurant is popular because of Japan's first food show. Of course, after eating it, I firmly believe that it is not only because of a program, but also because of the food of the boss and the boss. A total of 10 seats, divided into two rows against the wall, leaving only a small aisle in the middle; there is no menu, there is only one kind of dish - burdock, the difference is only in size and whether to add eggs. The boss is both a chef and a waiter. Everyone takes care of all the work in a restaurant, such as cooking dishes and collecting tea. It is always polite and orderly. We are the first three people to come in. The three of us have to wait at least 30-40 minutes from taking a seat to serving. Although some of the first batch of people who had come in had already finished eating, the owner did not panic to clean up the dishes, and waited until the first batch of the last guest left before opening the door to meet the 10 diners.
