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.

Immaculate garden with many things to see! You can easily spend a few hours here! The view up here is amazing, and I feel like the air is much better up here (but maybe that's just me). There are beautiful buildings, and designated photo spots! Cute pictures guaranteed! It smells wonderful too! There is a cute museum as well, and the people who work here are super polite. Nice souvenir shop as well!

I've been here in Dec 2017, so it was quite chilly day. The place really beautiful, you can enjoy the view using cable car, as I can remember it was bout 1300 yen. The garden offered you many choices of herbs and flower scented essential oils. Best season to visit is at Spring and summer, so you can see the flower blooms.

Very picturesque garden with a herb and aroma theme. Sells a host of essential oils with various aromas. Go up all the way on the rope way and walk to the mid station before taking the rope way again.

I enjoyed my visit. The view from the top is spectacular. It's an European inspired garden and I believe so are the herbs. I like the way you climb all the way to the top by cable car and you walk downhill. I loved the way the herbs are arranged by category: tea, fish, meat,... Depending on its use.
My only complain would be the lack of shadows. We were there in August!

Outdoor herb garden spread over a large area on a mountainside with conservatory/green house and more. Fantastic gondola rides up and down the mountain are available for a fee.
