Nunobiki Herb Garden & Ropeway4.3
On the upper and middle slopes of Mount Rokko lies a garden and park complex to enjoy the scenery and flowering smell. The ropeway right next to the Shinkansen terminal at Shin-Kobe whisks you to the two stops in the garden.
Get off at the top station, enjoy herbal foods at the cafe or restaurant and buy some plants and herbal products at the souvenir shop. The overhanging exhibits of fuchsia are elegant in the Glass House. A herbal foot bath near the terrace helps you sooth your tired feet while enjoying a pleasant view of the Kobe city and Osaka Bay. The night views from the ropeway and the observation deck are also splendid.

Interesting garden with lots of different herbs. If you are in to herbs and stuff this is the place to go in Kobe. As im not into herbs I just went to visit it for the cable car ride in to the mountains. Very cool and amazing views of Kobe! Almost no tourists around and very chill. Also not that expensive(1000 yen). You can easily spend 1.5-2hours in total there if you walk from the highest station to the middle one.

Fantastic place to go for a walk and have a look out city of Kobe. The garden up there is full of life and beautiful. If you are looking for some relaxing day, walking and viewing of the city, that’s the best place to go while you are visiting Kobe. You can also find some hiking trails for those who are interested in walking into the nature. Rope cable is available too!

This place is so romantic!😍
A perfect place to with your love ones, family, friends and special one. You can also go there with yourself if you want to. You will experience the excitement of riding in a cable car and seeing the beautiful mountain, sea, sky and city of Hyogo. You will appreciate how beautiful it is to see a lot of herbs, flowers, trees around the park. You can enjoy playing, relaxing and had a picnic under the open park with an amazing a wonderful sight seeing on time. This is indeed a perfect place to see specially on spring season. I will see this beautiful place once again. You will never have a dull moment because of its beauty. Must try for those who haven't been here. ❤

The hike up there, amazing. This garden is tucked waaaay up in the mountains with little disturbance. Nice change of scenery from all those temples and city life. Probably took half a day including the hike up. Would definitely recommend to anyone. 😍

We went to a LOT of gardens in Japan, and this was our favorite. Not a traditional Japanese garden (reminded me more of an English garden) but stunning nonetheless. We happened to be there during rose season which was incredible. We did the hike up from Kobe station which was beautiful (and a good workout), but this pleasant surprise at the end was such a treat (as was the lavender ice cream and honey chai). Not only were the grounds gorgeous, but the glasshouse was lovely and the cable car ride down offered amazing views. Can't recommend this enough.
