Needed a couple of gin and tonics to get on this but it was all worth it - fantastic views down to the sea and beyond. We visited during Spring at sunset. Wonderful evening views with all the twinkling lights below. Didn't stay long as it was quite cool - make sure you've got warm clothing with you

It's good to spend a couple of hours here. Takes you away from the city and gives a relaxing atmosphere. The glasshouse is work a visit, and if you want to take things real easy, have lunch either on hilltop or in the glasshouse café. Herb Gardens need to be visited in warmer climes to enjoy.

Despite the fog and the rains, we were able to take the cable ride and take photos at the top station. We tried taking shots of the view below but because of the fog they did not register well on our camera. Just the same, it was a worthwhile experience for a tourist like me to be able to take...

We went up here whilst waiting to be checked in as we arrived early. This was a great place to wander around and while away the time.

Well, when we saw the gondolas going up the mountain from our window at the ANA Crowne Plaza next door we had to visit this place. I didn't keep the receipt but I think we paid about $15 US to visit and for me it was not worth it. I am not into plants or herbs and landscaped areas. If... More

For the token price, it's well worth the 10 minute ride and resulting views. The gardens obviously depend on the time of year, so not much was available when we visited, however there are some exhibits and shops that you can spend time in instead. We visited later in the day (after 5pm) to coincide with the sunset, this means... More

Spent a delightful morning in the Herb Garden via the Ropeway. The views were magnificent and the gardens are a lovely walk even in February when it's not very green. Loved the glasshouse and the plants! They have crafts and workshops if you're interested and a nice tea house to enjoy the views. There's even a foot bath outside.

Is one of the favorite tourist attraction in the area of Kobe, located not far from the shin-kobe station, approximately a 10-minute walk away. To ride the cable car, it will cost about 1,120 yen for a return trip, traveling by train alone, from the bottom station to station on need take about 10-15 minutes. At the top there is... More
