Kobe Nunobiki Area & Shin-Kobe Ropeway

 

Nunobiki-Shin-Kobe-Ropeway

There is a hiking trail from Shin-Kobe Station. Only a few steps north of the station are forests shielded from the rumbles of the city. A 15-20 minute climb through the woods takes you to the 43 meter tall Nunobiki Waterfall, whose name comes from its draped cloth-like appearance. Five minutes east from here is the Miharashi Observatory, which offers decent views of the city. The Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens are well worth a visit.

You can also take the Shin-Kobe Ropeway to the top of the mountain chain.

The Gardens also have a seasonal illumination schedule. See an example below.
