Kobe is known as the birthplace of jazz in Japan. The first performance of a professional jazz band in Japan was held here in Kobe. Kobe is dotted with numerous live houses and jazz bars, as 'the City of Jazz'. Kobe Jazz Street is Kobe's signature autumn festival. For two days in early October, 150 players from around the world entertain audiences at 10 venues including live houses, churches and hotels in Kitano-cho. Both days begin with a marching band parade, so visitors can enjoy the excitement from street-side. There is even a popular 'festival eve' tradition, in which local hotel presents a jazz dinner show.
