    Nestled in the heart of Kansai, Hyogo has a coast for the Sea of Japan and the Pacific ocean. No wonder its capital, Kobe, is a bustling port city. There's plenty to see in Kobe alone, but there's even more outside.

    Check out Takarazuka, a city famous for its all-female theater productions and the Osamu Tezuka Museum. Baseball fans can visit the internationally known Koshien stadium. History buffs shouldn't miss beautiful Himeji Castle, a UNESCO world heritage site.

    Famous people from Kobe include legendary manga artist Mitsuteru Yokoyama and Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.
