  • Perfect scenery just a short walk from the Shinkansen station. Can recommend for a short stopover. If you have more time even better! There is even a small nice bar after going up further, from which you can have a good view on the waterfall with a beer. A scenic view of the city is also very close. If you move further up there are gardens, where you could basically spend your whole day.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful set of falls. Feels like you out of the bust city for a while.
  • 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.
