NMUN • Japan - Kobe

NMUN • Japan will once again be held in partnership with Kobe City University of Foreign Studies. University students will discuss matters of global importance in the modern port city of Kobe which was rebuilt after the 1995 earthquake. Kobe’s port was one of the first to be opened to foreign trade in the late 19th century. In October, 2008, UNESCO designated Kobe as a Creative City of Design recognizing its distinct culture through the processes of cultural acceptance and assimilation.

Experience a sobering UNESCO World Heritage Site where the first atomic bomb was dropped, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (Genbaku Dome) and Museum. Visit ancient Kyoto, home to numerous UNESCO temples and garden sites. We plan to visit Kiyomizu-dera Temple Complex and Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine with its 5,000 vermillion gates. Discover Kobe's Earthquake Memorial Museum, Sake Brewery Museum, and Harborland on the waterfront. Don't miss this amazing opportunity!

Getting there: For international flights Osaka Kansai International (KIX) airport is the most direct route to Kobe. Connecting flights from Tokyo Narita (NRT) or Tokyo Haneda (HND) also exist. Airports serving Kobe include KIX, Osaka Itami (ITM), or Kobe (UKB). The Airport Ground Transportation section of the Costs page has more details.
