Last of my Kobe pics! Thanks for all the lovely comments! I think there’s some good cheap gal shopping to be had in Kobe (in the covered mall to the right of the station) and in OPA. However as the 6th largest city it is limited in its gal activities. My friend and I even had a hard time finding a game center with purikura :^_^;;: But don’t like that stop you from galling yourself up and enjoying Kobe!

Most people just club in Osaka since it’s close. I think the problem with Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe being so close together (an hour away from each other or less), is that it dilutes all the concentration that a city like Tokyo has.

There is definite gal in Kobe, however don’t expect a Shibuya-like atmosphere.

Kobe Gal Services

However, smaller cities often have cheaper hair/nail/tanning places, so if you’re there for a while you might want to check out a deal.

GAL HAIR EXTENSIONS

For example, in hot pepper salon ACHIEVE アチーブ is running an exte special for all-you-want (つけ放題) for 8800 yen (around $90.00). It’s near impossible to find exte hodai for under 10000 yen in Tokyo.

Here’s an example from their Hot Pepper site of their work :sparkle2:
