Travel Guide - Mount Rokko-san

InformationInformation

Mt. Rokko-san, spreading behind Kobe city, is one of the most popular mountains in the Kinki (Kansai) region. The mountain offers a vantage point for a view down the mountain to a quite close-up view of the city.
There are several facilities at the top of the mountain, such as Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden, Rokko Garden Terrace, Rokko International Musical Box Museum, ski area, shops and restaurants. The panoramic night view from Rokko Garden Terrace is filled with dazzling lights shining like jwewls scattered through Osaka Bay. The night view has been dubbed the “Ten-million-dollar night view.”
In addition to numerous hiking trails, Mt. Rokko-san is accessible by buses, cable cars and ropeways. At Rokko-Sanjo Station on the Rokko Cable Line connecting the mountain and downtown Kobe, you can enjoy another great view from Tenran-dai observatory, which is famous for offering one of the best panoramic views of Kobe from the mountain.
