U can see the whole area of Kobe from the top of Mt Rokko. However, the visit here is not as I hope for as there is nothing much on the mountain. U can get a nice ice cream here though.

But every single tourist designations you will have to pay. Sum up rather a lot. So we went up straight up to the observatory. Nice view. Do not catch the last bus down, it will be very crowded. The bus drivers are very nice. Best service ever !! ありがとう Arigatō bus drivers.

Mt Rokko is home to the Rokko International Musical Box Museum, the Rokko Alpine Botanical Gardens, the Rokkosan Field athletic park (where kids can go through obstacle courses), the Rokko Shidare Observatory and the Mt Rokko Snow Park. The best way up is to take the Rokko Cable Car and hop on the Rokko Sanjo Bus that would bring you... More

Took the ropeway (cable car) up the top station abt 10mins. Then stroll down thru the herbs garden n see pretty flowers. There's free herbal foot bath too along the way down. Great bonding time w kids to enjoy the nature! Note: below 15yrs old is abt half adult price.

We stayed in Namba Osaka, thus decided to buy a Rokko/Arima 1 day pass (¥2460). The easiest way from Namba is to take Hanshin Railway to Kobe Mikage station (御影) , and follow via bus #16 to the cable car station. The strange thing is although the day pass covers from Namba to Mt Rokko area, its not available from... More

From Sannomiya station, head east on Hankyu line to Rokko station. Ask for directions to board Bus No. 16 which will head up to Rokko Cable station. At this station, board the Cable Car train up to Mt. Rokko (round-trip at ¥1000). The Cable Car train ride is a touristy experience in itself. Both direction of views (going up and... More
