Taking the cablecar up Mount Rokko, you can take advantage of the spectacular views of Kobe Harbour and the local area. There is a café and gift shop at the summit and here you can buy local produce to enjoy yourself or give as gifts.

A very good place to get the best views across the harbour , maybe it would be an idea to bring some binoculars and a map to see what you are looking at. The garden area however is tatty, nearly derelict with dead plants and weeds everywhere

We visited this restaurant during our recent Japan visit. Luckily we got a seat on terrace which had breathtaking view. Staff was very helpful and courteous. As it was very windy, they also offered us blankets. Food was also very good. Loved the soup and pasta. Fish was average.

This is really a nice place for spending half an hour wondering around it with ice cream in hand or sitting at a table in an open-air cafe in shade of greenary.

nice place, it was raining when I was there but I could see all Kobe area, harbourland and so on. I'm sure it's a view worth the complicated trip on a sunny day. Nice restaurants and souvenir shops.

Great place to visit for a spectacular view of the Osaka Area. Get there early before sunset to view the area in day light and wait for sunset. In the winter time, the temperature at the top of the mountain is 10 degrees cooler than city level so layer up. If you drive parking is fairly cheap and convenient.
