The Herb Garden is located very near the JR Shin Kobe Station. In fact as you get off the Shinkansen in the station you see the gondolas move over the mountain in the backdrop of the station. You will have to fork out 1500 yen for a round trip on the gondola and visit to the herb garden.We wanted to walk down( one way ticket is 950 yen) on the way back but we were told at the information booth that it would take us 2 hours to do that and that the route will be dark in the evening. A gondola seemed to accommodate 4 persons and they earmark one gondola per family even if the number of members are less than 4. The staff is young and friendly and the ropeway is very safe and the views terrific . On the way up you can enjoy the view of a dam a waterfall besides a panoramic view of Kobe harbour. Nearer the end of the ride you will go past very colourful gardens.Take the ropeway right up to the Herb Gardens Top Station( although you have the option of getting off at the Mid Station). At the top are view rest houses, restaurants, shops selling various items including those made from herb. You can see the Rose Symphony Garden, Miri no Hall ( concert hall), etc. which have nice decorations. We also saw a Fragnance museum and a Fragrant Garden( from which we saw the walking trail but did not see anyone on it) but did not think much of it. You then walk down the lovely garden path past the Herb Museum,Kitchen Garden , Lavender Garden ( where is the Lavender?)a detour to a Glasshouse( spend some time, the view is terrific, there are cafes too),Four Seasons Garden , lovely Kaze no Oka Flower Garden and finally board the gondola at the Mid Station. There are adequate public toilets in the walk. They close by around 5.30 PM however on weekends and holidays the top observatory is open till 8.30PM. Overall a little overpriced but worth it. Earmark at least 2 hours for this attraction.

Took a one way ropeway up as had less time! Lots of flowers and herbs at the top!! lots of souvenirs collected including honey and herbal tea. Walked down and visited the glass house and the nunobiki waterfalls which were amazing photo-op spots also..A very refreshing trip! Worth the visit!!

Quite a trek to get to the cable car with some long queues which dissipate quickly. The view from the top is spectacular and Kobe airport can be seen in the distance. Some nice plants, some unusual and spectacular floral displays. There is a foot spa which was quite welcoming after walking around.

Took the cable car up to the top and walked down.

The gardens were beautiful, filled with flowers and landscaping plants. There's also a few scenic spots where you can chill and relax, overseeing Kobe.

There's a footbath area, it's free, just need to pay 100JPY for a towel to dry your feet after.

I spent a good 2hours there.

The view of Kobe from the ropeway is breathtaking. Upon arriving at the highest station you are greeted by a feast of different flowers. We ventured into the rose garden and the perfume from the different roses was a delightful aroma. We walked down the hill and were greeted by beds and beds of flowers. What an enchanting place.

We walked up and took the rope way down . Probably would have been smarter to do it the other way around! The gardens were pretty I'm not a huge flower person but it was nice. The village at the top was interesting with souvenirs, German food and beer. It was strange being in a german type village with weird Disneyland music playing loudly. But they view over Kobe was so so pretty. It was quiet enough that we got our own cart the whole way down. Had a nice lavender icecream in the garden.
