  • I went around 11 am on Sunday. ANA Crowne Plaza right next to acces to the gondola station. The ropeway at 1400 yen. Beautiful views of the sea from the ropeway. Cableway middle station but I went up to the observation deck at the top of the station. The view from there was clean. But it was cloudy the day I still saw Kobe port well. Flower still at the time the flowers had been planted on the spot to take photos. Breakfast and enjoy the aroma, different fragrance. If you go during the flower Observatory walk to the middle station down the flowers and fun.

  • As local people and tourist facilities, but did not dare go in the family in early spring and quite good, overlooking the city of Kobe, was herb and plant more interesting, and you can also dine on, really relaxed and ready and enjoyed it. I would go to a warm cheerful when sunny and still fun.

  • From Shin-Kobe station to the cable platform. I think it is good foot bath can be enjoyed free of charge so please be prepared towel. In sales of the towels. Views of Kobe City Park is a wonderful feeling. Up to the top and enjoy looking at while walking in various plants. Cable ride from middle station, get off and walk, get off. Park restaurants have limited menus.

  • The ropeway was enjoyable and simple enough. The real pleasure for me was the adventure of walking back down. The ropeway can be paid for as a single trip or two-way, but for the less able-bodied or elderly, the two-way is the only option. If you are happy enough to go on an interesting walk through greenery herb gardens and lovely paths then this is for you! The only warning is the open roads and steep muddy footpaths that can get in the way. I would recommend it myself, if you are able-bodied and do not mind the change in surface. There is also a perfume museum at the top and tourist shops for those interested.
  • A nice walk - uphill and down hill.... but be aware of what time of the year you visit the garden... in October it is not season for flowers - so if you are not a herb nerd you might get dissapointed if you expect to se a lot of colors. But all in all a nice place, worth visiting.
  • have a nice day this flower verry beutifull haha
  • Really beautiful, and a great chance to see some unique butterflies
  • A nice place to visit. Beautiful flowers and plants. There is a wonderful vote of Kobe if you take the cable car up the mountain. Nice walks and a great chance to connect with nature.
