When your body is working in HK, but your mind is still on holiday in Osaka 🥃 🥃 🥃 Purists say Yamasaki or Hakashu. I liked Hibiki the most though...... #hakashu18 #yamazak18 #hibiki21 #whi#whiskying #suntory #japan #osaka #japanesewhisky #whisky #suntorywhiskyhouse

I was told when you’re in Kobe, you should try it’s ice cream - some locals say it’s even better than the Hokkaido version - a big statement indeed. It is also the sixth largest city in Japan, with 1.5m inhabitants, famous for its port, beef, with a well heeled and cultured populace. There is a Japanese saying “if you can’t go to Paris, go to Kobe” - a nod to a cosmopolitan and stylish reputation built over hundreds of years as an important hub for trade. In fact, until the Great Hanshin Earthquake (which killed 6000 in the city and 40000 in the prefecture) it was Japans busiest port - it’s now no.4. We walked over 10km in Kobe, from the Rokkō mountainside Kitano with cute “Ijinkan” houses which used to be owned by 19th century foreign diplomats and merchants, and have now become museums, and where many young Japanese couples come to take romantic strolls (and maybe plan weddings with its many churches) Through the city centre with one of only two China Towns in Japan, towards the reconstructed port area with the Meriken Park, Hanshin Earthquake Memorial, to the bright Port Tower. Oh and along the way I came across a LEGIT Lanzhou noodle place with its Sifu handmaking noodles at the window. Topped with Kobe beef cubes - it was a surprise delicious treat in Japan Kobe is a cool and picturesque city. I would visit here again. #kobe #icecream #beef #port #hanshin #ijinkan #rokko #lanzhou #japan
