In the grounds of Kobe Adventist Hospital this restaurant is open to everyone. Surrounded by the Rokko Mountains National Park, enjoy superb views every season of the year. The buffet lunch is only 880 yen or choose from the menu. Dr Kellogg, who was a leader in Adventist medicine, not only invented cornflakes and granola, which changed breakfast worldwide, but emphasized a vegetarian diet. Recent data from various nations have proved that an Adventist lifestyle, characterized by smoking cessation, vegetarian diet, and exercise, is very effective in preventing many chronic illnesses related to lifestyle. We believe prevention is the ultimate medicine. Kobe Adventist Hospital (established 1973) is one of the few designated hospitals where many of the physicians speak fluent English, which can provide health-related documents in English needed to go abroad, for Japanese Health Insurance and the Worker's compensation program in Japan, as well as a Hospice and many health promotion programs.
