A little expensive

This was a lovely ride up the mountain, but it cost $14 for a round trip. If it were warmer weather, I would've just hiked it. The staff is very nice and the views were beautiful.

The ropeway is best to be explored by taking the tram up to have a good view of the Kobe Harbour. The view at the top is also nice. To see the beautiful flower gardens on the ground, walk down is a good option. The foot path is well designed and safe. There are several locations worth stop by to... More

The ropeway was a lot of fun. It was easy to find from Shin-Kobe station (good signage). The views were great -- going up the ropeway and from the top. The herb garden at the top was nice. We went on a cold day and it was nice to find blankets in the ropeway.

Views of autumn foliage was visible so that was a nice treat. not a necessity but if you want to visit the herb garden, this will save you a lot of walking and you get a nice view over kobe/foliage in return.

Shin Kobe Ropeway is located right next to the Shin Kobe Station. You can enter it from the Ana Crowne Plaza hotel. For a round trip, it costs only 1400 Yen for adults and children below 4 years can enter free of charge. On the way up, you can experience some amazing views of Kobe city and the Nunobiki waterfall.... More

The Ropeway offers magnificent views of Kobe city - even on a rainy day as my day was. The herb garden has a series of huge Glasshouses which overlook the city below - I saw banana, mango and citrus growing inside these - as well there was a cafe and a foot bathing area where you can sit with your...

Really nice view of Kobe as you move up (or down) the hill. I liked using the ropeway to go up and then walking down. The ropeway is in two stages. The 2nd stage goes over the garden area. This is an efficient and well maintained system.

I took the Ropeway from the bottom, to the top, then walked down via the herb gardens, parks and waterfalls below. It was well worth it, with stunning views from the ropeway and a pleasant walk through a lot of beautiful nature.

We took the gondola to the top of the mountain, then walked along the herb garden pathway to the mid-way gondola station to go back down. We didn't have enough time to visit the greenhouses, but enjoyed the gardens we walked through and the view from the top.

Ropeway that will take you to Herb Gardens and that will allow you to see Nunobiki waterfall for the top without the need of walking to it. You will have a good view of the mountain and of the city.
