Kobe
After visiting the beautiful castle I hopped onto the train to head to the next destination – Kobe, yummy BEEF :)Famous for the legendary Kobe beef, it is, in fact, an important port city and one of Japan’s ten largest cities.Kobe Chinatown is just around the corner. The juicy pork oily buns have a rich filling and a thin white dough layer, they are an absolute must-try. Along the street are numerous Chinese family restaurants, as well as vendors touting Chinese snacks.A few other popular things to do in Kobe is taking a stroll in the waterfront Meriken Park, and going on a sake tasting tour in one of the breweries.

About Ishikawa

Ishikawa, located along the Sea of Japan's coast, consists of the narrow Noto Peninsula to the north and a mountainous region to the south. Whether it's a leisurely drive along the rural coastline of Noto or immersing oneself in the rich culture of the ancient castle town (and Ishikawa's largest tourist attraction) of Kanazawa, which features a diverse sampling of Ishikawa's history, from the traditional samurai district to the historical Kenrokuen Gardens, Ishikawa is a beautiful microcosm of Japanese culture. Kenrokuen Garden, or Garden of the Six Sublimities is regarded as one of the "three most beautiful gardens in Japan." Located in the heart of Kanazawa, an ancient castle town, Kenrokuen features an incredible landscape of feudal era designs and trees dating back to the Edo period. Every season brings its own beauty to this unique garden, but the cherry blossoms here are superb.
