    We hadn't heard about these falls until we visited the information centre. A pleasant surprise at the end of a lovely walk to find these falls.  more »

    This small waterfall in the middle of the Greens is only 400 meters from Shin-Kobe station. The way from the station is relatively steep, but not too far and beautiful to wander. It's not quite so full of tourists and super to second to get out of the city. To achieve the way you have to go through only once under the station. Below you will find even a small Wasserfall...des further you can visit the waterfall also during the descent of herb garden...

    Hard to imagine of experiencing this kind of a nature hike which is situated right behind the Shin-Kobe Station. There are lots of foreign and local tourists and you can actually feel the comfort of nature while climbing the hills. Though it requires a little high amount of physical activity, definitely worth paying a visit.

    Just nearby Shin-Kobe railway station there is awesome nature path.

    The hike is negligible, 10 minutes at most at a fairly relaxed pace. The falls are beautiful, and worth seeing, since they're so easily accessible.

    The down hill walk from the herb garden is a relaxing stroll along a well kept path through lovely tranquil woods

    The most tremendous mountain stream, closest the Shin-Kobe Station(7min on foot), reached by the firstest shinkansen train(285km 177mile /h) from the capital Tokyo, only in the world.
