Mount Rokko Tips (7)

Nunobiki Waterfall

Behind Shin-Kobe Station there is a path which will take you up the Rokko Mountain. If you follow it all the way you can walk to the cable car stations and Nunobiki Herb Garden, but we just followed it for around 10 or 15 minutes to see the lovely 43m tall Nunobiki waterfall. A pleasant and easy walk.

Kobe's Ropeway or cable-car.

Also located near Shin Kobe Station is the Shin-Kobe Ropeway. A ropeway is the term the Japanese use in English for what I would call a cable-car. The Shin-Kobe Ropeway takes people up the Rokko mountain to an observation deck and the Nunobiki Herb Garden. You can buy a ticket which includes entrance to the herb garden.

From the top of the cable-car there are wonderful views over Kobe and out across the sea. We also noticed a little statue donated to the people of Kobe by the people of El Salvador in commiseration for their devastating earthquake; an experience the El Salvadorians sadly shared and understood.

We also enjoyed wandering around the Nunobiki Herb Garden with its colourful plants.

Due to lack of time we took the cable-car both up and down the mountain, but it is possible to walk back down.

We went up the cable car during the day and enjoyed spectacular day time views. I believe the night time view is also lovely though we did not see it.

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...

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.

Visiting Rokko Island

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.
