Streets of Motomachi 元町

In the 19th Century Motomachi was known as the home of foreign trading companies and is located next to the port of Kobe and adjacent to what was the foreign settlement. Now Motomachi is known for its maze of shopping streets and mile-long covered shopping arcade full of high-end retail shops, gourmet food and night spots. It is also well known for its cosmopolitan atmosphere, foreign influence and energetic nightlife.
