HOTEL PLAZA KOBE is located at Rokko Island in Kobe

Rokkō Island, located in the southeast region of the Port of Kobe, is Kobe's second major artificial island. It was constructed using reclaimed land between 1973 and 1992. 3.4km by 2km, the rectangular island has an area of 5.80km². Rokko Island was one of the hardest hit areas of the Great Hanshin Earthquake. Rokko Island is the site of a number of hotels, sports and convention facilities, markets, a water amusement park, sea view apartment buildings, the Kobe Fashion Museum, an international school, container yards, wharves, and port facilities. The Rokko Liner connects the island to JR Sumiyoshi Station, stopping at several points along the way.

Kobe is known throughout Japan as a city with a unique style and an exotic atmosphere. Having long flourished as an international port, Kobe has been influenced by its contact with foreign cultures. The city also boasts the Rokko Mountains, richly endowed with nature, and ancient hot springs such as Arima. Arima has plenty of places to visit that convey the good old days of Japan and Kobe, and is one of the city's most popular sightseeing areas.
