It’s picnic time!



Urban Picnic


East Park, Kobe (5 minutes walk from Lexis Japan!)

Love to read?  Love food?  Just love enjoying sunny days in beautiful Kobe parks?


Open until June 14, East Park in Kobe is home to the Urban Picnic space.

The outdoor library offers visitors a large selection of books (mostly Japanese), which can be borrowed (free!) and enjoyed under the trees.  Reading clubs and discussions are also run each day (visit for the book list and schedule).  The library doubles as a café, providing snacks, drinks and free Wi-Fi!  What better way to spend an afternoon!

On the weekend of June 13/14, the Urban Picnic space will be home to farmers markets.  With a focus on local, seasonal produce, this is a great chance to discover Kobe’s specialties and support the local community!

So why not spend a sunny afternoon on an URBAN PICNIC?!
