Wonderful view of Kobe downtown and Osaka Bay from the top of Maya Mountain. It is so close to Kobe and the ropeway is located in residential neighborhood. The visit can be as short as 30 min to 45 min, but try to go when...More

Maya Ropeway links Nijino Eki (the midway of the mountain) and Hoshino Eki, the top of Mt. Maya. The travel lasts only 5 minutes, but while you are in a gondola, you can enjoy a magnificent view of Hanshin areas.

We took this cable car as a way to get out of Arima for a while and see the surrounding area. The Arima station is a bit of an up-hill walk out of town along a road with no sidewalk, but the road wasn't too...More

We went during the day, so did't see the night view, but had a GREAT day view. Can see all the way to Osaka. Good place for a nature walk and hike.

The ropeway trip was ordinary, but once you reached the top you can have a great view of the city. Recommended to visit at night for the city view, unless you want to continue trekking at Mt. Maya.

More scenic than Nunobiki, it's a fun way to get to and from Mt. Maya (with the Maya Cable car that gets you up to Rainbow station). Max 25 riders and runs every 20 minutes (like the cable car). Enjoy!
