Really beautiful and was it not for the many others around it would feel much more countryside than it actually is. Don't miss the upper part, some 1 or 200 m up from the most spectacular bit. It's beautiful all the way up to the reservoir where it starts

I had a lovely sunny day to do this walk and probably took 1&1/2 hours round trip. I took the path and stairs uphill from Shin-Kobe station, through the various levels up to the Observatory/viewing point further up past the falls. Great city views, shady covered seating, toilets as well. There were people of all ages but the steps are... More

If you would like to do a hike, change to a pair of comfortable walking shoes and hit the trail. It will take about an hour for the whole exercise. It is quite easy to locate, starting from the Shin Kobe Shinkansen Station, go to level one and from the exit walk to the left towards a brick wall which... More

The easiest way to get to the falls is to go behind Shin Kobe Station via the walkway underneath. Do not go up to the Herb Gardens and then try to walk down after the mid-way station. That is a fair hard walk down if you are more mature--for you young ones, just take the hike from the mid-station at... More

i've seen more impressive waterfalls hence this one didnt really blow me away. we saw this whilst on the cable car ride up towards the top of the nunobiki herb garden. i think it would be much better an experience if you walked/trekked instead.

I loved the chill of the coming winter as I walked though the path. I was delighted to see a group of special needs children and their parents/educators on the trail. Really brought back fond memories of a past job. It showed that even people with special needs could enjoy the trail. That said, certain segments are steep and requires... More

For sure a must when being in Kobe. The falls are so easily reached. It's so close to Shin Kobe. (20 min) I used the app maps.me to locate it exactly. But it also seems to be well indicated. Once at the falls there are some benches to enjoy the view. The area is quite nice and I believe there... More

These falls are about 20 minutes walk from Shin-Kobe station, and that is what makes them so amazing. I don't think there are many cities in the world where you could find such a pristine natural site within 20 minutes walk of downtown. I recommend taking the cable car one way up to the herb gardens and then making the... More
