Nice view, even though we visited on a rainy day. Locals suggested still better view on clear days, when you can even see the Kobe harbour. The gift shop (peter Rabbit shop) is nice, with many interesting gift items. Area is well-maintained.

Taking the cablecar up Mount Rokko, you can take advantage of the spectacular views of Kobe Harbour and the local area. There is a café and gift shop at the summit and here you can buy local produce to enjoy yourself or give as gifts.
