About Rokko Mountain
Rokko Mountain is a mountain block located in the Higashitan-ku and Kita-ku of Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture. The elevation is 931.25 metres. It is designated as a national park in the Seto Inland Sea, one of the 300 famous mountains in Japan and one of the 50 mountains in the hometown of Hyogo.
How to get there
From Hanshin Mikage Station/JR Rokko-do Station/Hankyu Rokko Station, take the Kobe City Bus 16 system to Rokko Kaibul Shita Station, which takes about 10-30 minutes, then take the cable car to Rokko Kaibul Hilltop Station, which takes about 10 minutes, and then take the hill bus to various areas of Mt Rokko. You can also take the Rokko Arima Ropeway from Rokko Arima Onsen Station to Rokko Arima Ropeway Rokko Peak Station, which takes about 12 minutes, and then transfer to a mountain bus to go to all areas of Mount Rokko.

Seto Inland Sea National Park, developed with many attractions such as Rokko Mountain Ranch and the Yatsugumi Museum, can be late for a whole day.
The combined train + mountain bus ticket purchased allows you to get on and off the bus at any time on the mountain. You can also buy a combined ticket to visit these two attractions, which are also very close to each other. The botanical gardens are not so good because of the season. At the top of the hill, you can see the view from Osaka to Kobe, so we ordered some food from restaurants and cafes and waited for the sunset. The posters on the side of the platform say it’s worth ten million dollars.
Near Arima Onsen, the night view is said to be very beautiful. During the day just a wide view, a good place to walk.
It is a mountain with a very wide view and is a very famous place in the area, with great pastures on the mountain, alpine botanical gardens, and you can go at night to enjoy the night view of Kobe.
The hot spring town is unbeatable and the hotel is superb! Relatively more fun than Kobe City
Where I work Not much more to say. If you don’t know anything, just ask me. I’ve got all kinds of deals, how to play, and so on.
I’ve got a gondola and a hot spring. If you have the means, it’s best to book a hotel on the mountain! The cable car from Rokko to Rokko Onsen closes early~ The handmade carbonated pancakes sold on the hot spring hill are very, very good!
In order to go to the observation deck of Mount Rokko, after coming out of Arima Onsen, we went straight up the mountain, and walked to the cable car station in the evening, it was almost completely dark, looking down from the cable car, only to see the jungle on the mountain, black, and the cold wind blowing past in November. The cold November wind was blowing in your ears, reminding you of the words “dark moon and high wind”. There are not many tourists on the mountain, but at the bottom there are many lights, and standing at the top of the mountain gives you the feeling of overlooking the earth.
The best place to see the night view of Kobe is up by cable car. If you have enough money, you can enjoy a meal at a restaurant while watching Kobe’s million-dollar night view. Kobe is one of the top three night views in Japan.
