Nankin-machi (Kobe’s Chinatown)

Filed under: Cuisine, Domestic, Food, Kansai, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 1:47 pm

After seeing Kobe from Port Tower, we headed over to Nankin-machi, the Chinatown to get a bite to eat. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Kobe’s Chinatown is a good deal cheaper than Yokohama’s Chinatown, although a bit smaller.

  1. Hi there,
    Shorompo in English is Dumplings, which I eat quite often. They usually have shredded
    pork inside and are steamed. Your Shorompo looks fancy and delicious.
