Mt. Maya, Kobe

4.5
Head up Mt. Maya to gain extensive views from its prominent peak. Rising to an elevation of 698.6 m (2,292 ft), the mountain represents one of the major summits in the range, in both its height and popularity with visitors. A lot of this popularity comes from accessibility, with a cable car service whisking you up to the top. Alternatively, you can take the easy, pleasant hike up. The city and its coastline below form a memorable sight, and the cable car service means you don't have to worry about making it back down before the light goes.

  • Visual Super good, directly to see the Port of God, Osaka Bay, no barriers, cables car on the fast and convenient, super recommended to see, but at night the wind super cold to pay attention to keep warm

  • Climb the mountain itself in the car is up to the top, about 40 minutes. You can see the scenery in about 10 minutes from the parking lot! You'd better just from the spring before the fall quite in the middle of the night people, so avoid holiday!

  • Night view from Rokko mountain is nice, but widely visibility even at night from the Maya Mountains here, this is very nice at night. Even the milky way at night illuminated by black light on the trail there is pretty fantastic.
