Kobe

Kobe, the capital of Hyogo prefecture, is a very international and cosmopolitan city about 30 minutes west of Osaka. A lot of areas were settled and developed by foreign immigrants after Japan was opened in 1868. Kobe is a good access point for hiking and onsen and has an extremely vibrant and lively nightlife.
