This shopping street with over 100 years of history stretches from Motomoachi Station to the area near Kobe Station. Among old establishments are numerous headquarters of the confectionary shops well-known across the country. The stained-glass arch over the entrance of the arcade was made by Miura Keiko, glassware artist from Wakayama Prefecture, using a distinctive technique.

Along with clothes and cafes, most prominent are shoes and bags, sold at many different shops in the street. There are also plenty of imported goods, a long tradition since Kobe is one of Japan's first port to open itself to international trade. This is spot is worth a visit to enjoy cafes and shopping when you come to Kobe.

Contrast to the Chinatown across the river, Motomachi is very European styled. Walking here is linked in the middle of a small town in Germany.
