A highland pasture spread on the peak of Mt. Rokko. Sheep, donkeys and ponies are free to graze, and visitors can come in close contact with the animals. Children can learn and try to take milk from cow or sheep.
The view from rokko mountain is absolutely amazing. You can not only see kobe and its surroundings, but you can see as far away as osaka.Drive up the mountain from kobe and there are many locations to get a view some better than others. I was fortunate to have a local drive me there, so i got the fortunate of being shown the secret location, absolutely amazing!!!
The Rokko Mountains are part of the Seto Inland Sea National Park. They have been a favorite spot for communing with nature since old times, not only for Kobe's citizens but also for people from other parts of Kansai. The many enjoyable hiking courses in the Rokko Mountains are too numerous to mention, and the panorama of Kobe viewed at night from the summit is truly breathtaking.
Rokko island is the place where I live. It is uniquely made by man. It is the artificial island. Everything is planned as one of the largest town-making project by Kobe municipal government. As you can see from the picture, it is very modern and westernized district. There are banks, post-office, supermarket, park, school, hospital, library, museum and every other necessities for our daily life. I can lead a comfortable life in this island.
On the top of Rokko Mountain, there is an area called "Rokko Garden Terrace".
There are observatory,shops,cafeteria...
We can see the Kobe city far away...beautiful scenery :-)
