Standing across the Osaka station platform was the Hello Kitty Edition of the Shinkansen. I wished that I could go and take a look. This time I was travelling to Kobe….
“S￼tarted as a collaboration between Hello Kitty creators Sanrio and JR West in 2018, the Hello Kitty Shinkansen is a single train set that plies the Hakata (Fukuoka) to Shin-Osaka route once each day in both directions.” – JapanCheapo.com
I arrived at the Kobe Motomachi! This was a very popular shopping street that was filled with small shops. But, my goal wasn’t about shopping for the newest clothes or schools.
My ultimate destination was Nankin-machi, also known as Kobe Chinatown.
“Nankin-machi is a neighborhood in Kobe, Japan located south of Motomachi station adjacent to the Daimaru Department Store and is a major tourist attraction. Considered as Kobe’s Chinatown, the area has over a hundred Chinese restaurants, shops, and a Chinese temple dedicated to Guan Yu.” —Wikipedia
Tourists and students alike were all standing and waiting for the opening of one little shop. They were waiting to buy some delicious Chinese pork buns from Rosyoki/ Roushouki.
These were such a scrumptious breakfast treats! Never imagined eating these types of buns in Kobe!
