This was an interesting ride with good views of the Kobe harbor. We were here in late March but most of the flowers were not in bloom yet. There was still stuff to see and it was a pleasant visit.

This was a lovely ride up the mountain, but it cost $14 for a round trip. If it were warmer weather, I would've just hiked it. The staff is very nice and the views were beautiful.

Views of autumn foliage was visible so that was a nice treat. not a necessity but if you want to visit the herb garden, this will save you a lot of walking and you get a nice view over kobe/foliage in return.

Really nice view of Kobe as you move up (or down) the hill. I liked using the ropeway to go up and then walking down. The ropeway is in two stages. The 2nd stage goes over the garden area. This is an efficient and well...More

I took the Ropeway from the bottom, to the top, then walked down via the herb gardens, parks and waterfalls below. It was well worth it, with stunning views from the ropeway and a pleasant walk through a lot of beautiful nature.
