Nice view with the Gondola ride

That is the best part of our trip. We did not realize that it is just next to the train station, 10 min walk to the entrance. And then you have to walk up the hill to the station... read more

Beautiful place with scienic view on Kobe. You can either go by cable car or walk an easy hiking trail. Close to the cable car station there are some crowded restaurants and shops, but as soon as I walked down the gardens it was very quiet. You can see lots of flowers and herbs (outside and in greenhouses). It's a... More

That is the best part of our trip. We did not realize that it is just next to the train station, 10 min walk to the entrance. And then you have to walk up the hill to the station -- that is another 10 min. Fortunately, the ride and the view is nice, probably nicer than at the top. Our... More

The view from Nunobiki Herb garden is fantastic! But the best part is getting out of a city center with a short ride in on the ropeway get you out to nature in no time. The arrangement of the herb garden is very nice and and lots of stuff to learn. the palm and butterfly hose on top is also... More

Not only do these gardens have a wonderful and beautiful collection of plants and flowers but the gardens are situated on a hill overlooking Kobe from which one has great views of the town and port. Recommended!

we arrived at 9.30am from Osaka to visit . We had gone 2 days earlier during golden week and the queue was miles long so decided to go early on a weekday and weren't disappointed. The views are spectacular and for anyone who loves gardens this is the place to see it. We went straight to the top in the... More

Fun and enjoyable cable car trip up the mountain. Herb garden is truly spectacular and immaculate. Breathtaking views are on hand from the building complex atop the mountain.

This herb garden is a must if you visit Kobe. It is located very close to JR Shin-Kobe station and you will not miss it since they put alot of sigange just after you exit the station. It is a great place for you to see Cherry blossom and my wife and I were lucky enough to some in our... More

We arrived quite late, so had to wait for the evening session which begins at 5pm. Sadly, this only allows you to walk around the small section at the top of the cable car, which takes about 20 minutes. We really wanted to walk down through the beautiful gardens, which you can only do if you make the daytime session.... More

Visited on a Monday after the Golden Week. It was such a relaxing place to be. You will also get to enjoy a panoramic view of the entire Kobe city. The cable car ride was enjoyable as you will get to experience the city view from different vantage points when the cable car ascends and descends. The botanicals were also... More

We went to Kobe as a day trip and to see something different to Kyoto. Fortunately it was a beautiful day and the rope way, herb garden and walk through the park were just lovely. The faux European feel of the shops and cafes is a bit tacky, but the view from the top was fabulous - especially when experienced... More
