I'm not a flower, plant or herb guy, but did want to give our kids the experience of riding the gondola, so we chose to visit here. Adjacent to the Shin-Kobe station. The gondola ride was fun, giving great views of Kobe, the harbor and waterfall. Upon reaching the top, there were countless photo opportunities with great views and backgrounds of flowers, etc. The park made it easy to take family photos by having prepositioned photo stations where you could rest and set your camera. There are a few eating areas and gift shops where you can buy herb infused lotions, snacks, oils, etc. You can walk or take the gondola and we opted to take the gondola both ways. However, if we had more time, and did not have small children, it would have been nice to hike down the entire mountain. Overall a nice experience and would do this again.

Im travelling solo in Japan for 2 weeks and wanted to spend Easter afternoon in a nice place. The whole experience was amazing and i had a great day. I bought a return cable car ticket but only used it one way as you walk from the top admiring different types of gardens and then either u take the ropeway from mid station or hike down. The hike is easy and you will pass the waterfalls on the way to shin Kobe station. Great opportunities for pictures in many places in the gardens.

There was not much growing but the setting is beautiful. We walked up from the train station past the falls. The whole route is lovely. Great views. I would love to go back in the spring

Situated behind Shin-Kobe station, the Nunobiki Herb Garden and ropeway is a great place to visit for leisurely hour or two to escape the hustle of the city. The view of Kobe and its surrounds on the top station of the ropeway is one of the best, day or evening.

There are many opportunities here for the photo enthusiast, with the top station a European inspired village with statues and a rose garden. Stairs descend into the Herb Garden where manicured gardens line the way down a comfortable, picturesque stroll full of scenery and aroma.

There is some light meals and snacks available at the top station, but probably best visit with a full stomach to best appreciate the view. It's quite a fair walk all the way down from the top, but the walk from top station to mid station is quite pleasant if you want just the right balance between a stroll and taking the ropeway. Of course, the ropeway is recommended for the way up.

Come for the nice view, leave relaxed and satisfied. That's how I felt at least.
