Houses are very well preserved and you can even pay a small fee (around 200-300 yen) to go inside the house if you wish. Be prepared for A LOT of walking uphill. Wear comfortable walking shoes too.

I have been here for a few times during my time staying in Kobe. The street was really nice and pretty with Western-styled house and western atmosphere. The only thing you should consider is you need to walk quite far and it's quite sloping to...More
