  • I stopped by on the way towards ichigahara walk from Shin-Kobe station. Climate is good, eat lunch on a bench in front of the waterfall, too negative ions. Many foreigners who had come. Waterfall near the tea House seems to be 100 years. The monument was built new.

  • 就在新幹線新神戶車站後方山邊,不過我沒有走到旁邊,而是搭乘神戶布引香草園纜車時,在上車前看到有說明可以在經過纜車第四根柱子時看到這瀑布,就特別注意了一下。 其實是個很細小的瀑布,但是高度蠻高的,配合周邊的山壁,讓這瀑布看起來雖然小巧,但也是蠻特殊的景觀。 搭乘纜車時,要記得尋找這個瀑布的身影。 
  • Half hour from Osaka. Perfect place for a one day trip. Give The chance to live few hours in the middle of nature without spend a lot of time to rich it

  • The best treasure we've found in Japan so far, combining culture, beauty and nature all into one! The hillside has numerous well-constructed and lighted pathways that takes us into many pleasant surprises. A lot of local folks walk/hike here daily - with quite a bit of professional attire and equipment for uphill hiking all the way to the reservior! The Kobe sightseeing bus has a stop at the JR station at the foothill where the path begins. We chose to walk here from the Sannomiya Station (~30min stroll), which took us into many interesting, local sights. We will definitely keep coming back here whenever we can!
  • A nice, quiet, quick hike from Shin-Kobe station where we found the path way for the falls. Amazing how you can see the city but are transported into a green forest for some peaceful quality time to yourself as needed.
  • I'm sure it would have been lovely, but the trail is closed due to wild boar activity... which wasn't written anywhere until I got up past the lower ropeway station.
  • We got lost..but after an additional hour we found them great area to hike nice falls
  • Nice walk into the forest. The waterfall and the View are worth all of the hard work. It's unforttunally not allowed to have a dip in the water :)
