  • We went by car. And from the Hanshin expressway from Higashi interchange climb winding mountain road, about 20 minutes? Friendly clean parking was hard to open. Night view from the terrace of the Kobe-Osaka city was spectacular. I think not worth watching in Rokko 枝垂re 300 yen. Why take the money on that?

  • I wanted to make sure Vista told me about tour operator of the Rokko ARIMA ropeway, headed out on foot from Rokko mountain station. Souvenirs and is it and could be beneath casual free of charge at the back side of the building into the deck and, from there, from Osaka to Kobe panoramic view overlooking. I can also come up in the car, but enjoyed the ropeway

  • Sea and city views far to the Osaka area is the best! Bargain beer and sausage are very delicious! It is a good location you want to repeat.
