Kobe Kitano Starbucks
Posted on 18 June 2012
Travel Date: 3 November 2010
Location: Kobe city centre, Kitano-cho
I find it’s fun to check out some popular international chains (read: McDonald’s, or Starbucks, in this case) when visiting different places. Not so much about having comfort food, but just to see what do they offer in their menu at this side of the world – or better still, try it!
That said, I didn’t go into this Starbucks located in Kitano (北野) as I wasn’t in the mood for a cuppa – just happened to pass by during my walk to see the ijinkan (foreign residences) and thought this Starbucks has a lovely exterior.
It looks like something that came out from a storybook to me. In fact, the whole Kitano made me feel that way. :) Will post about it in the next post, hopefully!
How To Get There
- They have a map here. It’s probably about 10-15 min walking north from JR Sannomiya Station (三ノ宮駅)
