Sannomiya Restaurant Guide
An attractive and chic area in Kobe, Sannomiya is a vibrant locale for delicious food and some of the top dining establishments in Japan. Many travellers visit Sannomiya just for the gourmet, and when you check out what’s on the menu, you will understand why—Kobe food. With an abundance of Kobe beef restaurants, it is guaranteed you will be able to enjoy some of the most succulent marble textured wagyu steak, that melts in your mouth, and in many restaurants, is grilled to perfection right before your eyes. With Kobe being a famous port town, expect plenty of freshly-caught fish and seafood available to diners at a great price.
Just a short walk from Sannomiya station encounter Eel Alley (unagi yokocho) where you will be spoiled for choice if you are after exceptional tasting eel. Sannomiya caters to a variety of tastes, with restaurants in Chinatown serving up with some of the best tasting dumplings you are likely to happen upon in Japan, and the numerous cake shops selling Kobe sweets. Neighboring ward Nada, along with Fushimi in Kyoto, supply 45% of all sake in Japan. With this in mind, understand you won’t have to go far before you find locally brewed alcohol and friendly locals to enjoy a beverage or two with!
