Nothing on Niagara Falls.

If you fancy a stroll away from the hustle and bustle of the city then not far away from central Kobe is a nice walk to (to be perfectly honest mediocre) the local waterfall.

My son and I went to these falls this weekend. We come from a place with not many waterfalls so this, to us, was beautiful. It seems like a bit of a climb to get there but it isn't really. Just 400m from the Shin-Kobe station. Lush forest, a beautiful clear creek flowing and the series of falls.. Lovely. A... More

A nice waterfall but it's better to keep walking up the trails to nejoy more scenary, either all the way up to Maya-san on the east side or up to Nabebuta-san on the west side. There are plenty of trails to if you get a good map (available at Shin-Kobe station tourist office) and can read a little Japanese to... More

Via the ropeway to Herb Garden we saw this waterfall down below and felt didn';t need to walk there to see it. We already saw it. If you have planty time on hands then you may like to walk there. Yes it is very near to Shin Kobe station. Waterfall on Concrete but really on rock. Nice to look at... More

I happened onto signs for these falls while walking through the train station. I was lucky enough to find them; I say this because all of the signs, maps, etc... are solely in Japanese. I'm pretty good with maps and was able to find my way up. The falls are nice, pretty and there is a nice area to sit,... More

Good part of the landscape, nice place to rest on the hike up. I wouldn't say it was the best ever, but definitely pretty.

The falls may not be so impressive per se (they are small, no comparison with great falls of the world) but they look very harmonic as a part of the mountain landscape.

Well worth walking to this attraction. You would never imagine to come across it, tucked away within a short distance of the train station. We walked to the herb garden and towards the cable car station (a more demanding and lengthier walk) but of course you could stop and see the waterfall only. We walked on a hot day, when... More

We walked on a very hot day at the end of the summer. We perspire a lot after just walking up 15 minutes. It was very refreshing to hike among densely green trees. We had only time to get to Nunobiki no Taki falls and come back, but it was nice to see the stone monuments with poems about the... More

Osaka to Kobe, is a mere 14 min trip via the Shinkansen. The highlight was a hike to Nunobiki-No-Taki falls and beyond to Nunobiki Dam. Access to the hiking trail is via Shin-Kobe station, or via a cable car ropeway that also gives access to a scenic lookout over Kobe and onwards to Mt. Maya. From Shin-Kobe station the hike... More
