Kobe Port Tower, Kobe

(3.7/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Pretty typical city tower. Good view of the port area which is beautiful.
  • The admission fees was a bit pricy, but worth it. The view will be much better if you visit during evening time
  • Another famous symbol of Kobe located on the Kobe waterfront in Harborland. Nice views of the waterfront area from the observation deck. The admission fee is a little pricey for what you see. Great photo spot!
  • Lovely and iconic place in Kobe. Can take a good photo of Kobe Port.
  • My wife and I toured here in the spring 2015. Kobe was our last day. We hung out here around the water front and just relaxed. The place has unquie architecture that was pleasant to take in.
