Our first time to go here, One of my japanese friend invited us here.
Facing Kobe bay, the commercial complex of shopping mall, restaurants, cinemas and other amusement facilities, hotels and wedding center Kobe Harborland is truely a pearl lying on the edge of land, shining dazzlingly over a large space of waterfront at night. In fact, the complex originated in the former site of the Japanese National Railways Minatogawa Kamotsu Station. Kobe General Children’s Center was the very first facility appearing at Harborland. The year 1990 remarked several important events held in Kobe Harborland including the first gas lamp lighting event at Kobe Gaslight street, the opening of Kobe Harborland General Information Center, Kobe city General Education Center and the Brick Warehouse restaurants. After the construction of Harborland Event Square Hanekko Hiroba and the pedestrian bridge Hanekko was completed in 1991, Kobe Harborland was officially opened as a town, a veritable cultural hub linking the land and sea in such a active and modern commercial complex, leading to the open of a series of important facilities including of Hotel New Otani, Kobe Seibu Department store, Duo Kobe, Augusta Plaza, Hankyu Department Store and Mosaic.
From our house to this place, it took us 1 1/2 hours. And, our kids happy to have long trip they are watching their favorite cartoons Totoro and Doraemon.
Look at the view is so gorgeous, and the big cruise in the other side of the port. We go early ’cause we know that it will be traffic because it was Golden Week Holiday.
Mosaic and Canal Garden are two largest shopping complexes located in Harborland. While Mosaic takes advantage of lying along the waterfront, holding aloft the signboard outstanding from the distance and featuring a complex of boutiques and restaurants, Canal Garden owns the Hankyu Department store, Sofmap electronics tore and sports store. The brick warehousescreate an outstanding construction in the middle of Kobe Harborland by the impressive classical architecture. The houses used to be used to store cargo from ships around the port before becoming home of several restaurants. An other remarkable construction, Hanekko pedestrian bridge comes over the little stream by the event square Hanekko Hiroba. Hanekko is the pioneer in applying the European style in construction which wings can be lifted up to allow ships to pass. The bridge will be extremely splendid at night by the illumination of about 1700 light bulbs.
A happy kid because we go inside the shops of the Anpanman Museum but not the Museum itself. Because we are early so, we had time to stroll around the vicinity.
Here’s the main reason we went here to eat Brazilian Food. It was “meat all you eat”. It was terrific and delicious food. The name of the restaurant is Brasiliano, nice place the staff are from Brazil but they can converse in Japanese. I just love the beans and the sauce on it and i don’t know what does it called, but great food. Very friendly Staff even though it was so, many people they can still manage not to let the customer waited too long.
We had time to ask the staff to take us pictures. Then, we stroll outside to look the scenery. The big cruise at the opposite side was already sail away. I told to my husband once He had long vacation we should try to do Cruise Trip. Well, put in the family bucket list.
A great thing we went to the side of the Mall, we had time to go the Kawasaki and Marine Museum. Kids enjoy it so much. Of course Kawasaki is all about motors, history and different kinds of motors from small to big one.
While, the other kids are still enjoying the Kawasaki Museum, we went to the Marine and take pictures with my little princess. Different ships, boats anything in the water transport.
We just recently watch this in the TV. The Time Capsule, 1987 – 2017 – But, they didn’t show what’s inside the capsule.
While walking, we saw this man doing some balloon art. Then, my girl she don’t want to go until she requested to make anpanman balloon. So, cute right.
Anpanman (アンパンマン?) is a Japanese picture book series written by Takashi Yanase, running from 1973 until the creator died in 2013. The series has been adapted into an anime entitled Soreike! Anpanman (それいけ!アンパンマン?, Let’s Go! Anpanman), which is one of the most popular anime series among young children in Japan. The series follows the adventures of Anpanman, a superhero with an anpan (a bean-jam filled pastry) for a head, who protects the world from an evil anthropomorphic germ named Baikinman.
Well, there’s a lot of character in Anpanman Cartoons. Babies or Toddlers love this Anpanman cartoon. Just check this link here.
