Night-time Views of Kobe Motomachi

European feel in the shopping district

By Manish Prabhune    - 1 min read

Sandwiched between the Chinatown district Nankinmachi and Kyu-kyoryuchi, a foreign settlement in the 19th century, Motomachi Kobe today is a shopping district with small and medium scale establishments, including major retailers like the Daimaru or Marui department stores. The street starts with Sannomiya Center Gai and it is usually quite crowded on weekends. You can shop from electronics to fashion, but there are also some nice pastry shops. With this photo story I would like to give you an idea of the night-time view of the area.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 20 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
