I couldn't leave Japan without trying the fabled Kobe beef, so I asked advice to couple of Japanese friends. They recommended this place, and I was not deceived.
It's a bit hard to find (it's in the underground mall, under the New Hankyu Hotel) and I was the only non-Japanese there, so it's definitely not touristy.
The cooks know enough English to understand how you like your steak cooked, which is basically all that matters. I'd suggest going there for lunch (since it cost much less) and getting only the meat menu, because that's what's you're there for.
It's in no way cheap, but the meat is delicious and the experience is extremely satisfying (not to mention the bragging rights you get from having been there). If you feel like you can afford spending 100$ for a once-in-a-lifetime meal, I'd definitely tell you to go for it!
