Nankinmachi / Kyukyoryuchi (The Former Foreign Settlement of Kobe) Restaurant Guide

Kobe Chinatown is located south of the JR and Hanshin Motomachi station and is considered one of Japan's three big Chinatowns, along with Yokohama and Nagasaki's Chinatown.Its history begins after the opening of Kobe's port, when people living under the Qing Dynasty (modern China) came to live here, because of treaty relations that wouldn't allow them to live in foreign settlements.Although the town was destroyed in an air-raid during World War II, during the '70s and '80s there was a cooperative effort to resurrect and maintain the historic Chinatown. At present, it is an essential sightseeing spot of Kobe.Over 100 shops line the streets, selling Chinese food, Chinese ingredients, dim sum, and miscellaneous goods.There are fun festivals and events based on the Chinese calendar. 300,000 to 500,000 visitors are estimated to attend the Lunar New Year festivities.The Chinese-style dragon dances and lion dances are atmospheric seasonal sights of Nankin-machi (Chinatown).
