Kobe「神戸」: Shin-Kobe Ropeway「新神戸ロープウェー」 to Nunobiki Herb Garden 「神戸布引ハーブ園」

Shin-Kobe Ropeway

Rokko Mountain can either be hiked up or climbed using the comfortable Shin-Kobe Ropeway「新神戸ロープウェー」 that offers a relaxed seating space while you get outstanding views of the southern slopes of the Rokko mountain chain, Kobe's skyscrapers and the Herb Garden that covers the hill. It's a lovely view, specially in early Spring.

The ropeway departs from next to Shin-Kobe Station, Kobe's shinkansen station. As it ascends, it passes by the Nunobiki Waterfall and the Nunobiki Herb Garden, giving a nice aerial view of both. The highlight of the ride lies in the observation deck located just beside the top station, which offers spectacular views of Kobe and is a popular night view spot.

At the top, a really nice picnic & shopping area awaits. It is called Nunobiki Herb Garden「神戸布引ハーブ園」. Starts with the souvenir stores, but as you come down, it becomes more and more magic, until all romantic dreams crystallise in the Glass House that became the last part of our day in Kobe.
