We are happy to welcome 21 choirs from 8 nations to the Sing'n'Pray Kobe!

China, Indonesia, Japan
Philippines, Poland, Republic of Korea, Russia, Thailand


Perched on a hillside sloping down to the sea, Kobe is one of Japan's most attractive and cosmopolitan cities. It was a maritime gateway from the earliest days of trade with China and home to one of the first foreign communities after Japan reopened to the world in the mid-19th century. One of Kobe's best features is its relatively small size – most sights can be reached on foot from the main train stations, making it a pleasure for casual wandering and stopping in its high quality restaurants and cafes. The most pleasant neighbourhoods to explore are Kitano-chõ, Nankinmachi Chinatown and, after dark, the bustling area around Sannomiya Station.
