Make the most of the remaining summer heat as it takes a turn and begins to cool down throughout September, October and November at this special limited season BBQ restaurant beneath Kobe Harborland’s ferris wheel.

Urban Earth BBQ Kobe Harborland’ is a unique restaurant where customers are invited to enjoy their meal outside in the fresh air. Customers have the choice to dine beneath a tarp canopy or inside a premium dome tent (that are often used at glamping resorts).

Although an outdoor do-it-yourself bbq restaurant, customers can be certain that they are receiving top quality at Urban Earth BBQ Kobe Harborland, with all ingredients sourced locally such as their Kobe pork and Harima beef. On top of all the tasty food, the restaurant’s glamorous dome tents, dining tables, chairs and canopy are provided through the restaurant’s collaboration with outdoor goods manufacturer, LOGOS.

The open-air restaurant allows customers to enjoy a meal alongside a glamping atmosphere, without actually dedicating themselves to staying in a tent for the night.

Take in the view of Kobe Port Tower and the glistening lights of Kobe’s skyline from the comfort of your bbq glamping tent.

The restaurant offers 3 bbq pitches at different prices; Standard Open BBQ canopy pitch, Standard Beachside BBQ canopy pitch and the Premium BBQ glamping tent pitch.


Standard Open BBQ and Standard Beachside BBQ canopy pitches

Can seat up to 8 people per pitch, minimum 2 people.

Urban BBQ Kobe Harborland has 7 Standard Open BBQ canopy pitches and 7 Standard Beachside BBQ canopy pitches across the site.

The Beachside BBQ canopy pitches are located next to the harborside, whilst the Open BBQ is adjacent to the ferris wheel.

Premium BBQ Glamping tent pitch

So 1800 yen entry, 1800 yen basic BBQ, and 1800 booze for a 5400 yen total. Is that what beer gardens cost these days? It was 3000 yen back in my day.
