We came down Mt. Rokko on this beautifully maintained funicular cable car that has been operating for about 75 years. It is very comfortable although there were not enough seats for everyone and some had to stand. It travels down a wooded glen with streams and flowering trees and you catch glimpses of the city as you go down. Very... More

Well-maintained quaint cable cars run very efficiently. There is some imbalance and eerie sounds when it runs, but the level of teh gradient explains it all. Definitely worth the visit.

The cable car is clean and efficient. You get a nice view on the way up to Mt Rokko. The steps may be slightly challenging to the elderly and the physically challenged.

Not so easy to find cable car actually, so when we arrived there, we are a little bit excited to take the cable car, even not so high. On the way in the cable car, we could see some different view. very good for kids to have fun there

You can board the tram at Rokko Cablecar station at the foot of Rokko Mountain. To get there from Rokko Station (Hankyu) is to take Bus 16 100m away from after leaving the train station and crossing the railway tracks. Bus 16 accepts Kansai Thru Pass so it is part of the paid ticket if you have purchased on. The... More

You can take bus 16 from the Hanshin Mikage or JR Rokkomichi or Hankyu Rokko train station to the cable car station at the foot of Mt Rokko. The cable car station is the end stop for bus 16. There are 2 cable cars and they come... More

Get there early and sit towards the bottom, and you can get a great view all the way up. It's an interesting way to get up to the top, then to the bus, and then to the ropeway to Arima onsen.
