Today’s Japanese word is
有名な～ ： ゆうめいな～
For example 「北野異人館通りは神戸の有名な観光地です 」 Which means ‘Kitano Ijinkan Street is a famous tourist site in Kobe.’ .
So,「有名な～（ゆうめいな）」means ‘famous ~’ .
🍀 「観光地（かんこうち）」means ‘a tourist site’ .
I went to Kitano Ijinkan Street and adventured around there. Kitano Ijikan Street used to be an area where a lot of European and American lived from the Meiji period to until the early Syowa period. That is why it has a lot of Western style houses and mansions and they are called Ijinkan（異人館）. Just by exploring around there and seeing Ijinkan, I felt like I was traveling into the past and I almost forgot that I was still in Japan.
I highly recommend you go there. It is a really great location where a lot of historical places, delicious restaurants, cafés, music and nature are mixed and packed into one area. Just by going there, you can enjoy all of them at once.
As for restaurants and cafés, there are so many delicious places to go there. So, instead of picking and listing some of them, I recommend that you adventure around there. You will definitely find a lot gems there!
I think it takes about 20 minutes to get to Kitano Ijinkan Street from JR Sannomiya Station on foot. To get there you need to go uphill. So, if you go there in summer you will feel really hot. But don’t worry! As I mentioned, there are a lot of cafés and ice cream places, so you can stop by and get an ice cream and a cold drink. Oh! I almost forget to mention that there is a really interesting Starbucks in this area.
Actually, this Starbucks used to be just a house where American people lived from the Meiji period to until the early Syowa period. And they transformed it into a cafe. So, inside the shop you can kind of feel what life was like in Kobe Kitano in the past. I think you will definitely love it!
