Checking-in from Hyogo Prefecture

IMG_0102_2Tadaima! (I’m home!) Back in Hyogo-ken (prefecture). Fun fact: I’ve lived in Japan for about 6 years and 3/4 of it was spent here in Hyogo-ken. But where is Hyogo-ken? Most of the people who ask don’t know much about it so as an introvert whenever I’m asked “where do you live?”, I’d usually just say Osaka or Kobe. Haha! Introvert problems. I don’t really like explaining things over and over. Anyway since this is a blog, I’ll answer your question properly in this post.

Where is Hyogo-ken?

Hyogo is a prefecture at Kansai region in Honshu island. It is located at the west of Osaka and Kyoto. Kobe is it’s prefectural capital. It’s most famous because of Kobe beef.

“So where in Hyogo do you exactly live?” For security reasons, this question will never be answered unless I’ve moved out of this place. Hope you understand!

My favourite place to go to Ijinkan road in Sannomiya. I’ll give you a photo stroll in this post:
