If anyone would like to see a panoramic view of Kobe City, this is the best place anyone can ever recommended. Both roadway and public transport access are available to reach there. If you prefer public transport, take Hankyu like from Sannomiya to Ashiyagawa and then take no 16 bus to the Cable Car station. Last cable car leave mount... More

Took just under 2 hours to climb. Started at cable car - can easily via train from sannomyia and then bus (I think it was #16) for about 15 min longer. Quite hot and humid in summer-bring plenty of water. Signage is in Japanese, but trails aren't too complicated....basically keep left. At the top we walked to/through golf course trail... More

This is a great place on a clear day. You get sweeping views of the city. For 1350 yen, it pays for the cable car up to Mt. Rokko and the bus that takes you around Mt. Rokko. You can also just pay for the cable car fee one way at 540 yen, and pay for each time you get... More

At the first days of november it was 20 degrees in Kobe but it was 10 or more degrees colder on the top of the mountain. Can't describe the view and environment, I just wanted to stay there forever. It's a "must visit" place for Kobe.

I read the reviews aboit the night views and assumed it'd be just as good after dark. Not so! Though the Rokko Cable car goes till late, nothing at the summit is open after 5/6pm, so you're limited to the viewing platform at the cable car station. Nice enough but not worth the trip. I wish we had gone up... More

I've lived below Mt. Rokko (六甲山, Rokkō-san) since August and I've visited Mt. Rokko four times. I love it up there. The views are incredible at times and obscured by clouds at other times. From the turret at the Garden Terrace, you can see Awaji Island and the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge from Awaji to Kobe near Maiko beach. From the... More

It was something to do... The view on a clear day would be much better but even cloudy it was interesting. The cable railway is probably 2 times as long as the Hong Kong peak tram but same idea. Rokko is the way to go as the other cable and trams close much earlier. Lemon beer and honey tea at... More

Since it was a bit late, I was only able to go as far as the view deck at the cable car station at dusk. It was nice to see Kobe below transform from day to night. It was very cold and hazy though and visibility was a bit hampered. It could've been much better on a clear day so... More
