There are many famous sweets and bread shops in Kobe. Let’s introduce my recommended top three foods in Kobe. Let’s get started!

China town in Motomachi in Kobe

First is the “pork bun.”

There is a Chinatown where “pork buns” are sold at the shop called Motomachi in Kobe-city.

The shop has a long line every time.

There are several other pork bun shops, too.

It’s made by mixing pork minced meat, chopped onions, and various kinds  of other Ingredients.

Second is “Gofuru.”

“Gofuru” is a famous sweet in Kobe.

They are sold at Fugetsudo.

This sweet is cream sandwiched between thin wafers, like rice crackers.

They are called “waffles” in English and “gaufre” in French.

In Japan, they are called “Gofuru” and they taste good as well.

Be careful not to eat too much because they are delicious.

I recommend buying them as souvenirs for your family and your friends.


Last is “Ohagi.”

The Nadashin store’s “Ohagi” is especially famous in Kobe.

My husband sometimes buys them for us because he likes them.

“Ohagi” is made from sticky rice. The sticky rice is steamed, rolled and wrapped with sweet bean paste inside.

Bean paste is called “Anko” in Japanese. It’s a little bit sweet.

I like “Anko” very much! I recommend trying eating “Ohagi”. I hope you like it.
