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.

My favourite herb garden in Japan! It’s a nice hike up, or you can take the ropeway. I recommend going up by ropeway and down by walking, because there’s a lot of gardens to see on the way down, too! Don’t miss the restaurant at the top, though. It’s fantastic; they use fresh herbs in the food and it’s always delicious. I love the foot bath here, too.

This place is so cute. And the ropeway was fun.
Take a herbal beer and enjoy the panorama. You can thank me later.

This is a personal preference, but I wouldn’t come here as a tourist. If you are looking for city views, those from Mt Rokko are far more panoramic. If you live in the area, or have a lot of time on your hands and want to relax somewhere beautiful, then I do recommend the Herb Garden. It’s also a very nice place to visit after hiking to Nunobiki Falls. You can also experience the faux-European vibe that is very common in Kobe.

Such a beautiful place! Kobe was very beautiful and the view you can get from the hammock was the best!

Easily accessable, be mindful of the last cable car that's leaving. Went there before Valentine's Day so they were starting to decorate for the romantic weekend. The village gives off a very European feel and they've clear put efforts into the flowers and vibe. There is supposedly a path where you can hike to the other observation deck but we didn't try because the sun was setting. Perhaps next time.
