The weather wasnt good when I first reached Mt Rokko. It was a blanket of fog due to the storm passing by. However, it gets better in the afternoon and the view was clearer. The music box museum might sound boring at first but they offer mini concert of music box performance every half an hour. When I was there,... More

An interesting ropeway, nice gardens, concert hall, and eateries on top and down the mountain. The views of the city are wonderful, so It is a proper place fopr beginning your trip around Kobe.

This is the highlight of our trip where we get to enjoy panoramic views of Kobe, Osaka and the port in between, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It feels great to breathe in fresh mountain air and visit the various tourist attractions and souvenir shops at the mountain away from the crowds. We later had a... More

Spent a Sunday up Mt. Rokko - took the #16 bus for the Hanshin line to the Rokko Cable Car (which is essentially the entire route, 20 mins) and then the Cable Car up (which is actually a funicular railway, not a suspended cable car) for about 10 mins. The top part is much more geared towards driving around to... More

Mt Rokko has a beautiful views of Kobe and the port... or so I'm told. It was very hazy on the day of my visit, and the city was barely discernible. But it's not the mountain's fault, I suppose. It was still a grand day out. The funicular ride was great, impressively long and steep. The observatory at the top... More

I always reached the top by car to enjoy the view of the city... better after the sunset. In summer it is good to refresh enjoying the cool wind.

I don't think it's worth the trip to see this place, the Venus bridge was better nearer the city and you don't waste too much time

We bought a promotion ticket from Sannomiya train station, to include train, bus, cable cars to Mt Rokko then to Arima Onsen. It was raining day, hazy. We have to take train, walk to bus stop across in rain, took the bus, then a tram uphill, to the top overlooking 'nothing' in haze. We went to nearby Botanic gardens -... More
