Kobe

Excellent day out in Kobe today. In 1995 it was completely devastated by an earthquake, but it has been rebuilt and is a lovely place.
We went to the 24th floor of the City Hall for the first of some great city views.


Then we explored the Waterfront area and it's views of the city skyline.


Kobe is famous for it's beef, but also sake, and there are lots of distilleries just outside of the city.
We found the Hakutsuru Sake Brewery and Museum where we found out all about how sake is made from fermented rice, had time for a bit of dressing up and then got to sample some of the tasty products.
