Mount Rokko (931m) is the highest peak around Kobe overlooking the sprawl of the harbor city. The summit area, cool year-round with the average temperature of 9°C, has Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden that cultivates and displays about 1,500 species of alpine and cold-adapted plants from around the world.
Japan's first golf course, Rokko Country House, is a good place to enjoy barbecue and mini-putt golf in a huge expanse of wonderful greenery. Rokko Garden Terrace offers cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops and a good spot to see panoramic views of everything below. The views are fantastic especially at sunset and night.
The funicular railway connects the foot and upper part of the mountain. From the summit, you can use a ropeway to visit Arima Hot Spring.
