    Very nice place to take the cable car to visit. The view on top of the mountain is very beautiful and the mountain station of the cable car has Austrian atmosphere with sunbathing area, beer garden and bratwurst. The Sound of music could be included. The hike down is pleasant and well to do within an hour and a half.

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.
