  • The ropeway was enjoyable and simple enough. The real pleasure for me was the adventure of walking back down. The ropeway can be paid for as a single trip or two-way, but for the less able-bodied or elderly, the two-way is the only option. If you are happy enough to go on an interesting walk through greenery herb gardens and lovely paths then this is for you! The only warning is the open roads and steep muddy footpaths that can get in the way. I would recommend it myself, if you are able-bodied and do not mind the change in surface. There is also a perfume museum at the top and tourist shops for those interested.
  • A nice walk - uphill and down hill.... but be aware of what time of the year you visit the garden... in October it is not season for flowers - so if you are not a herb nerd you might get dissapointed if you expect to se a lot of colors. But all in all a nice place, worth visiting.
  • have a nice day this flower verry beutifull haha
  • Really beautiful, and a great chance to see some unique butterflies
  • A nice place to visit. Beautiful flowers and plants. There is a wonderful vote of Kobe if you take the cable car up the mountain. Nice walks and a great chance to connect with nature.
