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.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
