Port Island Restaurant Guide

Construction of the man-made island just off the coast in Kobe's Chuo Ward began in 1966 and was completed in 1981.The Port Liner connects the island to Sannomiya Station.When the island was finished, Port Pier 81 was opened, Japan's foremost exhibition hall with over 16 million visitors.The Port Pier amusement park, Port Pier Land, was popular among the locals, but finally closed in 2006 after 25 years of operation.The entire island is home to three universities and research laboratories, the head offices of companies based in Kobe, and large apartment complexes. The island underwent a second development in recent years using newly reclaimed land on the south side, with new facilities like the Kobe Airport completed in 2006, only 16 minutes from Sannomiya Station, used by 2.5 million travelers each year.
