We enjoyed our walk/hike up to the waterfall and reservoir. It's a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. From just behind Shin-Kobe station there is a path that leads up to the mountain with a few viewpoints. It's a good way to spend a couple of hours and get some exercise along with Japanese seniors who... More

I visited this mountain because I saw online about how picturesque it was. I caught the cable-car and then the ropeway, which indeed provided stunning views of Kobe as they took me up to the top. The mountain itself had many beautiful flowers, trees and trails and stunning views of the city below. However I found the trail maps to... More

Though we visited in early spring with the plants and trees just starting to think about budding, the park was beautifully taken care of, very peaceful to walk through and the view of the city was terrific. Worth the journey up absolutely.

I like it because it has a great view. I disliked it because the cable car going down from Mt. Maya was out of service. So i had to go back to Mt. Rokko for the cable car there.

Went by car and had to walk up the hill for about 15 minutes but the view at the top of the mountain was great. Not much to do at the view area but toilet and binoculars are provided. Great for spending the evening and enjoy the view of Kobe City.

Great view of Kobe from Mt. Maya, and fun cable car ride. They are taking away the old cable cars and installing new "modern" cars. I always thought the old cars were the charm. Sad to see them go...

Mt Maya offers terrific views of Kobe city and as far east towards Osaka. Close to the city itself. Best way to get there is by bus from the Hankyu Rokko station or you can walk as we did. It took us about an hour to get to the cable car station. The cable car takes you half way up... More
