Last week, I got a chance to visit my extended family in Wakayama. We also visited Osaka and Kobe since they are very close to Wakayama. I was so nervous meeting Atchan's cousin for the first time. We went to a tradition Japanese restaurant. They served food I was not familiar with, but everything went great and everyone was so nice.
Next day, we went to Osaka for a quick lunch then headed to Kobe. You can see this giant octopus in the famous street of Dotonburi.
Then we went to the Herb gardens in Kobe.
We took ropeway up to the hill. It has stunning view and romantic at night!

I strongly recommend coming to Herb gardens when you visit Kobe!
