On my 7th day in Japan Emma took us to Kobe which is Japan's fifth largest city situated in the Kansai prefecture, left of Osaka. Kobe has a very large shopping district with famous departments stores such as Sogo and Marui that have multiple levels, there's also a very large Chinatown near the heart of Kobe.

Afterwards, Emma and I took purikura (photo stickers) as a purikura place nearby that had more than 10 machines and they were only 400yen each which is around $5-6!!!! Here in Australia it's like $15 for one, crazy, even used an $18 machine here once at Photoworld (which sadly closed down) but the results were amazing!

On the way back to the Kobe station, I saw this beautiful Mediterranean-style building that had the old worn out look, and contrasted very well with the surrounding modern buildings
