Kobe Port Tower, Kobe

#8 of 270 in Things to do in Kobe
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Kobe trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • As the title la torre offers an impressive overview of the port. Perfect for making some great pictures on clear days. The only sore point maybe the price 700 yen is a little excessive.

  • Just hanging out around the Port Tower is already pretty nice. You won't miss much if you choose to skip going up the tower.
  • Arrived there at 8:37pm and the tower was closed :( however, the tower still looked amazing. Took quite a walk from the nearest subway station.
  • 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.
  • Almost ever major city in Japan has a tower of some sort. Really great view of the city and the port from the top of the tower.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Kobe

Kobe does best with sleek mid-range and high-end hotels offering views of the skyline; book rooms facing south for views of the bay during the day and the city lights at night. Luxury hotels along the waterfront are pricey but offer impeccable comfort and service. You can find last-minute accommodations at the city's budget hotels from the information desk in the main train station or online. For a very Japanese experience, try out one of the city's capsule hotels, known for ingenious space efficiency.
