We did the round trip on a gondola rather than walk back down - amazing scenery and a very different perspective of this city. You can see across to Osaka and down the bay for some distance - superb. The gondolas are clean and well...More

Steep is not only apt to describe the gradient that you will be experiencing as you are whisked up the hill, but also the ¥1,500 return trip fee that you will be parting with. The view of the concrete skyscrapers of Kobe and the sparkling...More

Great views of Kobe from the top. Walk back down to the mid station and see lots of beautiful flowers all the way down. Really worth while .

The view from the Ropeway was brilliant. I would suggest to take cable car to the top day time and and down at night. Then you can view the city day and night.

Not only get great views of the expanse of Kobe, but also a great way to see the Nunobiki Falls and the Nunobiki Herb gardens.

Spent hours here. Name Herb Garden misleading. Friends asked why Herb Garden on bucket list. It’s so very much more. Levels and levels of glorious flower beds. Can not describe adequately. Hopefully photos will help.

We used it as a transport to get to Nunobiki Herb garden, but the view from the Ropeway was brilliant. Protip: Buy a return ticket. It's worth it as an insurance.

the view over kobe is fine, but the main reason to use this ropeway/gondola is to visit the Kobe Nunobiki Herb Garden (see my TripAdvsor rave review) if you'd rather not hike up the 400m mount rokko for three hours and/or walk back down for...More

Well only be in Kobe for a day and unfortunately it will be a Sunday and we want to go to the Herb Garden and ride the Ropeway both ways. Earlier we will be going to Kobe Sannomiya Station on the Port Liner from the Diamond Princess. Friends used the City Loop Bus to get there then returned to their ship but after reading several reviews saying how difficult it can be to get a ride on this as it’s often full when it gets to your stop and doesn’t take on more passengers. With limited time my husband is e trembly nervous that this will happen to us. I’ve tried to research getting the Shin Kobe subway train out to the Ropeway but I become extremely confused. Also there are conflicting stories about how far yo need to walk. Walking is some way a challenge for me so a difficult ult walk is not really what I’d like. Can anyone assist please .. if we need to get the train to Shin Kobe and back can anyone outline an easy way to do so. Sorry about the length of this enquiry.

Hello, If you take the Port Liner to Sannomiya station, you will arrive on 2F and need to go down one floor to exit. If you exit at the central exit on the north side and go outside of the station, look for signs to the... More
