Mt. Maya, Kobe

4.5
#3 of 57 in Nature in Hyogo Prefecture
Mountain Nature / Park
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. Put Mt. Maya on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kobe vacation builder.

  • Up compared to Rokko mountain landscape, person a likes Maya San. If said Rokko mountain is the far balcony at night, Maya San is close. Night Hi-Zaventem almost so close that can't help but praise 嘆. But as few bus trips 較, be aware that Userboxes/Time.

  • Night view of Japan's three biggest puffy from the word. It's really good. The light of the building of the city of Kobe in harmony with the Sea well. Take the cable car from under the lift, café, restaurant and night-time dinner there, you can spend some time.

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.
