  • Went to Kobe Arima hot springs reservation was, so stop bus from Sannomiya, cables, bus, bus change from Hankyu Rokko went to Rokko garden terrace. Good weather, but temperatures are low 0 °. Still, cold weather wear was required. It is later seen from the foot of the view from here is nice and well see, so no failure. There was great deals tickets of admission tickets and discount tickets. From the summit station down to Arima Onsen ropeway was moved to the hotel, so was good experience.

  • Our friends took us to Kobe for the day and we started the drive to Mt. Rokko around 7:30. It was much longer a drive and much windier than previously anticipated, and it was high enough in elevation ...  more »
  • Course: ashiyagawa station - Mt. Rokko - ARIMA hot spring almost from the coast at comfortably up to 900 m pefectly. Should not be off guard and not a big deal anyway and cross the Ashiya upscale residential areas. Zone because it was equipped with authentic is better. Instead my teahouse staff in water, snacks. Moreover, any cell phone, call a taxi in the driveway in the middle where it can give up great. I was caught off guard though there are wild boar warning sign appeared. It's not afraid of humans. Be taken back into Bento, so be careful. So better don't expect it from the mountain top. Many local residents more water vapor from the Seto Inland Sea, mow the sight of Kobe City gas.
