Kobe's European houses, sake and a thunder storm

... strolled through Nankinmachi Chinatown, impressed by the Kobe beef steamed buns, and continued onto a fair at the waterfront. Unfortunately just as we were starting to explore the heavens opened with a torrential thunder storm, accompanied by a very strong wind which nearly toppled some of the tents. We abandoned the fair and made a dash back to the station, where we took the train to Osaka. In the hotel we managed to do some long overdue washing, ...
