Public land value

Looking at the land prices in Kobe over the past seven years, the average in Hyogo Prefecture fell by 2.0%, but it increased even more by 2.4%.

The overall trend seems to be that the higher the area is nearer the station, the higher the area where it falls.

Kobe Sign


Kobe's living environment has many advantages. Even while boasting sufficient urban functions, Kobe offers spacious housing, a low cost of living, smooth and short commuting times, good public safety, and good work-life balance: all the advantages of a more provincial city.

“Sandwiched” between the Seto Inland Sea to the south and the mountains of Rokko to the north, Kobe is blessed with a rich natural environment. (The city has the largest park space per person among 20 government-designated cities.)

Residents can enjoy seasonal leisure activities in the natural settings spread within easy reach such as mountain climbing and skiing on Mt. Rokko, walking to Suma and Maiko, and going to the beach, while in the city itself they can take pleasure in visiting to Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, and hot springs and enjoy other aspects of traditional Japanese culture.
