The beautiful waterfalls are located within a park, which is a 5-minute walk from the Shinkobe station. Reaching the waterfalls (there are at least 3 of them, by the way), involves a lot of stair climbing, and while you do not need to be too fit for that, it's certainly not recommended for elderly (or young kids, for that matter)....

Chairlift was excellent, visitor numbers were low for the time of the year, cooler than down in the city, try the lavender soft serve ice cream.

Very nice place to enjoy some quiet time. No place to even tip your toes in the water. Take the tram up and hike down.

I visit the Kansai region of Japan every couple years and I always make a point to stop by Nunobiki Falls once or twice. It's worth a trip just for the falls themself but the falls are also a trail head of sorts for another half dozen hiking trails and viewing spots beyond that. The downside first is that the... More

We walked from Shin-Kobe to the rope way mid station and it was the highlight of our Kobe stay. The well maintained pathways and stairs make this suitable for even a low fitness level and the scenery is stunning. We wished we had allowed more time and walked right to the top. The rope way back down was a great... More

It's a nice city break. We walked all the path until the lake above and it was nice to escape from the city. We got nice views from the top of the mountain and the waterfalls are so close to the station.

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
