  • I want to see the night Kobe trip I came here. There was an accident in the middle on the mountain road where I went in the car the wrong way, came out on the other side once again back up the mountain road from the other side and say, lovely sunsets. Until yet arrived a little bright in the night spent at shops, etc. Nice change to candle lights of the town gradually according to the sunset. From becoming full and the night move, dogs also enjoyed the night view from the vantage terrace, view deck together. It was beautiful. Remembering the night trail went back to the hotel.

  • Well organized area for viewing the sights, eating - there's seven cafe's and eateries - and doing some local knick knack shopping. Limited transportation options.
  • Nice hilltop shop with good selection of small accessories and organic food items. Cafe on site. Price a bit on high side.
  • You can see view of whole Kobe. Very beautiful especially during night
  • Great view of the city. Definitely recommend going at night but being a jacket because either can get cold even in the summer.
  • Nice place to walk around, very accessible by ropeway or cable car plus bus. Gorgeous view of Osaka Bay.

Where to stay in Kobe

Kobe does best with sleek mid-range and high-end hotels offering views of the skyline; book rooms facing south for views of the bay during the day and the city lights at night. Luxury hotels along the waterfront are pricey but offer impeccable comfort and service. You can find last-minute accommodations at the city's budget hotels from the information desk in the main train station or online. For a very Japanese experience, try out one of the city's capsule hotels, known for ingenious space efficiency.
