About Kobe Islands

Kobe has two man-made islands – Rokko Island and Port Island – which are home to universities, hotels and more. Shoppers among you will appreciate the large IKEA store, while kids are sure to enjoy the Kobe Science Museum and Planetarium, both on Port Island. Kobe has its very own airport as well, with daily flights to Tokyo, Sapporo, Okinawa and more. Photographers, too, will delight in dreamlike views of Kobe against the mountains at night.
