It is located at the eastern end of the Daqin Railway, at the junction of North China and East China.

Kobe is the capital of Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. Kobe, with a population of about 1.5 million, is Japan’s seventh largest city and the third largest port city after Tokyo and Yokohama. It is located in the Kansai region, on the northern shore of Osaka Bay, on the southern side of Honshu Island. Along with Osaka and Kyoto, it is part of the Kyoto metropolitan area. The center of Kobe is located about 35 kilometers (22 miles) west of Osaka and about 70 kilometers (43 miles) southwest of Kyoto. Kobe was one of the cities that opened up trade to the West after the end of the closed door policy in 1853, and was later known as an international metropolis and a port city in a nuclear free zone. Although the 1995 Kobe earthquake weakened Kobe’s status as a port city, it remains Japan’s fourth busiest container port. Companies headquartered in Kobe include ASICS, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, and Kobe Steel, as well as more than 100 international companies with Asian or Japanese headquarters in the city, such as Lilly, Procter&Gamble, Bringer Ingelheim, and Nestle.
