Nankinmachi Lantern Fair

4:30pm – 10:00pm
Free

The already beautiful and bustling streets of Kobe’s China Town will be decorated with hundreds of red lanterns until January 15th. The magical surroundings are perfect for an evening stroll as you enjoy a tasty snack, have dinner or do some shopping, and only a few minutes away from the Kobe Luminarie display! Note that as the lights will be switched on after sunset, the 4.30pm time slot isn’t exact.
