Enjoy the panoramic view of Kobe after riding on the ropeway

  • Views

The ropeway passes by the “Nunobiki Waterfall” and the “Nunobiki Herb Garden”, giving a nice aerial view of both.

Nunobiki Waterfall (one of the best one hundred waterfalls of Japan)” is located in the midstream of the Ikuta River flowing in the north side of Shin-Kobe station. It is one of the sources of “Kobe Water” known for its high-quality water.
This ropeway also offers spectacular views of Kobe and is a popular night view spot.

When you step off the ropeway cabin at “Herb Gardens Top Station”, you can smell all the lovely flowers in the Herb Gardens, have a great view of Kobe and the sea from the “View Plaza”.
I recommend you to take time to walk through the garden via either the “Four Seasons Garden” or the “Oriental Garden”, and then down to the ropeway “Kaze no Oka Mid Station”. This is one of the largest herb gardens of Japan and there are 14 garden areas. You can enjoy about 75,000 seasonal herbs and flowers of around 200 kinds blooming all year long. For example, the highest season of cherry blossom blooming is from March to April. Roses are from May to June and from October to November. Lavender are from June to July, lilies are August, and autumn leaves colored red or yellow are from November to December. There are also some restaurants and cafés which serve seasonal herbs food.
