  • Business hotel near the train station walk went to the temple. It was about 6 pm on weekday mornings, the Shin-Kobe station, walk towards the mountain and gradually so steep that is purchasing the devil after all, I wonder if has become comfortable and I was sweating and I came up here because long stairs to climb and I came. Arrived and at first I thought that "there were now. "Thought about more exciting because it was pouring, visible near the good. To relax, breathe the air falls about 10 minutes and then turned back.

  • To arrive one hour ahead of meeting time so I went to nunobiki falls. Don't worry my climbs up behind the scenes aspects of the station usually does not exercise. Maybe you feel like shoes are sneakers is better. Go leather shoes or loafers I gotta go. Sitting on the bench if arriving at the waterfall, take a break. Not even the sight of the waterfall is not that big, so long as. It is coming back, in about 30 minutes. Fresh start is recommended around May 4.

  • 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.
