This park is right by the Shin-Nagata station. Basically come here for the big Tetsujin 28 statue. We walked around the area and tried to check out the Kobe Anime Street that we looked up online, but the street is still just in its infancy - having opened only about a year ago - and doesn't really have much to...

Ok I agree it is just a big robot but Tetsujin 28 go is a 18 metre high 50 ton robot statue. It is a quick train a trip out of Kobe and i thought it worth the visit for a robot selfie - you wont be the only person standing in the plaza taking pictures.

If you come here, you'll find Giant Robot and you can take many picture :). There is also a Daimaru Department Store and shopping arcade there. You can going there by JR Line and Seishin Yamate subway.

I would recommend going here if you're in the area. It is pretty impressive to see a statue like this one. However, I do agree with some of the other reviews- there isn't really much else around. I still thought it was worth the stop though as it is only a couple stops away from Sannomiya.

Good to see the monument if you are in the area but nothing to really go out of your way for.there is also a Daimaru department store and a shopping arcade there. It's accessible by the JR line and Seishin Yamate subway. The stop is Shin Nagata.

Went there after it recently opened, nothing to really see except a big statue and a sea mall. Skip it.
