I had a spare morning and decided to take the rope way up to the herb garden. SO glad I did. I think it helped that it was a beautiful clear day - the views riding up of the harbor and city were spectacular. Make sure you visit the Welcome Center at Sannomiya Terminal Station first - they have a... More

We took the ropeway up to the top station. Fun to take the ropeway and see the view over Kobe. At the top station they do have a restaurant and bar. We only bought some water and started on over way down do the city through the herbgarden. If you have time, you should really walk down. You will see... More

We walked up to the gardens - not particularly well signposted en route we found :-), but the cable car is another option. We really enjoyed walking through the gardens, interesting planting and well tended. Small cafe with a range of refreshments - an ice-cream was very welcome on the hot day we visited!

Took recommendations and headed up the ropeway in the evening, in order to enjoy sunset at the top. Didn't stop in the gardens or to hike to the waterfall or dam. The view from the cable car is actually the best - from up top it's still really nice, just set a little further back. There is a beautiful rose... More

A short rope-way took us to the top of the hill from where we enjoyed an abundance of flowers, herbs, a rope way, cafe and enjoyable walk down hill... making for a lovely afternoon. Lots of fun photo opportunities and a stunning view looking back towards the city of Kobe and surrounding Bay.

Great ride up the mountain with the view from the top is well worth the trip and with Honey Ice Cream at the top, I am sure glad I tried the ice cream.

This was a pleasant couple of hours spent on the ropeway and walking down through the gardens to the middle stage of the ropeway. It might be more interesting when there are more plants in flower. The greenhouses are quite good and there is a little café there too. At the top we walked along a track signposted to Mt... More

Only a few minutes walk from Shin-Kobe Shinkansen station, the ropeway takes you up to the garden. On your way up you could see the Nunobiki-no-Taki (Nunobiki Falls) down below, with the view of downtown Kobe down below. Mt. Rokko is quite famous when visiting Kobe but it may take an hour or more for bus plus cablecar to go... More
