Kobe Port Tower, Kobe

(500+ reviews on the web)
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
Soak up panoramic views from the top of Kobe Port Tower, an icon of the city's skyline. The structure remains famous for its hyperboloid lattice structure, reminiscent of a Japanese drum. From the observation platform, you can witness views reaching as far as the peaks of Mount Rokko and the distant Senshu region. A glass floor reveals a 75 m (246 ft) drop and provides additional vistas to enjoy. See the city from different angles at the revolving cafe, rotating a full circle every 20 minutes, time enough for cup of something hot. Take a look at our Kobe travel itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Kobe Port Tower and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Very good place for nice views of port of kobe and hotels. Must visit. 700 yen is the entry fee. Telescope can be accessible for 100 yen.
  • THE HEART PLACE OF KOBE . You should go there for Relaxe & sighting. You will feel great to be there . With Couple or with friends you can enjoy.
  • Nice view over kobe. Still in the ok range of prices (700). If you want a good view over the Harbour and the city up to the hills it's your location to go.
  • Fabulous views when night comes. Visitation hours should be planned as public transport services ends early there.
  • In the autumn the wind was pretty hard, but we enjoyed the view to Mosaic (shopping mall across it) which was very nice!
