A strenuous walk up from Shin-Kobe station, this is worth the effort. You can also walk DOWN from the midway station on the Nunobiki ropeway.

Its a :" the journey is more imp than destination" kind of a place... the trek is beautiful...sort of reminds you of a movie set... when you start the trek its so green and lovely that its hard to imagine that its so close to the city....very pretty and very accessible...would recommend it to all!

This scenic place is a excellent way to spend the day close to nature. Besides the beautiful waterfalls and scenic spots that overlook the city, we also saw a couple of wild boars that allowed us to get closer for great photo shoots. The walk up can be very steep in some places so come prepared. You have the option... More

It is a nice place to visit. The park is huge, but just follow the sidewald and signs that lead you through the lower street level of the Shin-Kobe Station. The trail will take you to the waterfall. I did not ride the cable car, but it is much cheaper to ride if you wait until 5 PM.

This is an easily accessible waterfall right behind the Shin-Kobe station. The falls are pretty and there are plenty of places to sit and relax. Definitely check this out.

Nice to find somewhere which hasn't been overtaken by concrete as there is a lack of parks in Japan. Nice place for a day trip, and there is a nice ramen shop there too.

My family and I stumbled on this pretty walk on the way down from the herb gardens above Shin Kobe station. If you want to follow the path downhill first take the cable car as signposted from Shin Kobe JR station. Get off at the middle stop and walk downhill to a T junction. Take a right and look for...

Nunobiki falls are very pretty and worth a look if you enjoy short walks and picturesque scenery (and if you go when there are still some fall leaves around, it's even more picturesque). The walk up to the falls is right next to the train station, but if you happen to end up accidentally going in the complete opposite direction... More

Nunobiki, to me, is less valuable as a destination in itself but is good as an off-the-beaten-path side trip that takes in not only the waterfalls but also the Park that sits above Kobe (and is accessible via cable car from Shin Kobe). It's not the most difficult hike in the world; it has steep sections, but not too much.... More
