Itami is a great place to base yourself while you are in Kobe as many of the city’s star attractions are nearby. Two sights that should top every visitor’s list is the wonderful Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum and the much-loved Takarazuka Revue. Also worth checking out are the Open Air Museum of Old Farmhouses and Kidzania Koshien.
See local heroes, the Hanshin Tigers go into battle on their home ground, Hanshin Koshien Stadium, Osaka. The stadium also offers behind the scenes tours, giving visitors a chance to learn about the stadium’s inner workings and about local sporting heroes past and present.
When it’s time to slow down after checking out the delights of Itami, check in to one of the area’s numerous accommodation options. If you're looking for great service and a comfortable bed, it’s hard to go past the Miyako Hotel New Archaic, Amagasaki, the Fine Garden Toyonaka, and the popular Novotel Koshien Osaka West, Nishinomiya.
