However, other choices may exist. Here are some general tips from our host Atsushi Hori: “Sannomiya (mainland) is the busiest part of Kobe, lots of restaurants, shops, and many places to see. RIKEN AICS is located in an artificial island, there is nothing but buildings. Definitely, Sannomiya is much more fun to stay.”
