Pretty good place to go. We drove there. It is not an easy way to get there and had cost us ¥600 toll to get back Kobe.

We traveled up there for the snow park, it's a man-made snow park. We rent the suit and gloves there. We built snowman and played slide. It was fun!! though it's not real snow but it's still fun things to do with children.

Nice uphill via tram (no scenery) and cool spot for the sunset. A pity it's really a lot of folks fighting for the same small area for the night view. Food place was crowded for the night view.
