Chinese New Year Festivities

Free

Kobe is home to one of only a few “China towns” in Japan. As such, it’s no surprise that the Chinese New Year is a big deal.

The festivities in the district of Nankin-machi include a dragon parade, a lion dance, and martial arts demonstrations. There will also be stalls selling Chinese food and (more traditional) Chinese goods. While is starts on the 19th, there is a gap until the 24th when the festivities resume – so there won’t be any performances from the 20th to the 23rd.
