I went to the port area at night and found this tower very interesting and good for having a photo shoot. It's close to the park and Starbuck that you can enjoy both coffee and scenary of the surrounding.

Pay 700 yen and you are allowed to ride a lift to the (not so high) 360 degree observatory on the top floor. Good commanding views of Kobe and its port but, for me, savagely overpriced. There is a revolving restaurant on one of the...More

The tower inside is open from 9:00 to 19:00 (admittance until 18:30). Since it would be a holiday they may have reduced hours instead of being closed.
