Weekend in Kobe!

This past weekend was a three-day weekend, and I went out to dinner in Kobe!

The Kobe Festival was going on!
It is usually held in June, but it was canceled this year because of the Swine Flu…
You can see what a big deal Swine Flu was in Kobe!!!

LOTS of people!!!
This is one of the main streets in Kobe.
They closed it off from traffic for this festival!

The shops sold lots of different things!
This is a sake tasting place!

Kobe is a great place to shop, but for some reason, there are a lot of Lingerie places

In the summer, there are big ice blocks in the middle of the shopping street!
Look who I saw near one of them!!!

Don’t know who he is?
That’s Non-tan!!!
He’s a famous character in Japanese children’s books!
Here are a bunch of Non-tan books on display!!

Here’s the Lush store!
I always peek in and never buy anything!!


I also saw Yasuo Tanaka as well (he’s a famous Japanese politician).
He’s the guy with the necktie in the middle!
We have an election coming up… that’s why!
Oh and why is he in long sleeves even though it’s super hot???
Because it isn’t “proper” for Japanese politicians to wear short sleeves, apparently!

I was more excited to see Non-tan! LOL!

Annnndddd on to dinner!
Actually we ate everything so quickly that I only took a few pictures!

We went to a yummy Korean food place…
It was this hole-in-the-wall place, but soooo yummy!!!

Teokbokki


Garlic spears

We also had Samgyetang, Yukhoe, Namul, and Japchae
But I totally forgot to take pictures!!!

We finished it off with a trip to Starbucks!
Here’s my Lemon Green Tea Frappuccino!!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

xoxo, K
