Kobe Shinnkaichi

Kobe is one of the biggest towns in Japan.
Shinkaichi was the center of Kobe a long time ago...

Shinkaichi has a Japanese good-old-days atmosphere,
It is said that "Kobe's face B" today.

A few minutes walk will take you to YUME-NOMAD from the nearest 2 stations,
with easy access to go around popular places & attractions in Kobe.

Here are a lot of places to enjoy eating & drinking in Shinkaichi!
Stand-up meal & drink,
Old-style restaurant, casual restaurant,
A big market in a 5-minute walk away,
A grocery store next to the hostel.

Full of shops with kindness.
Very exciting town...
If you're interested in Shitamachi life,
We promise you spend a pleasant stay!


YUME-NOMAD was born to let you know this lovely town Shinkaichi,
and create the place so that people all over the world can meet up here and interact with each other.

Mayumi Mikami is the manager of YUME-NOMAD, and it was used to just an inn for a long time and her grandma's home.
Yoshiro Sato, awesome handsome guy, is the master-renovator of YUME-NOMAD, who has a nice&unique skill/idea for creative activity.
He also has an idea of creating an easy, comfortable place in Japan for both domestic and foreign travelers and backpackers.
These two guys has started NOMAD-PROJECT to renovate the 50-year-old hostel to create a guesthouse.
YUME means DREAM in Japanese
YUME-NOMAD sounds like WINDOW OF DREAMS in Japanese...
Mayumi has just tried to create the place for one or many to enjoy a comfortable stay,
and Yoshiro has just made it with a lot of help of friends.
Finally YUME-NOMAD has become a wonderful place with a full of harmony of colors, styles, and cultures.

We hope YUME-NOMAD would be the third place as a guesthouse - not a home, not an office-
the best third place for everyone to visit.
