Herb Gardens
Located at the top of Mt. Yotsugi (417m), just a 10-minute ropeway ride from Shin-Kobe Station. There are around 75,000 kinds of herbs and about 200 kinds of seasonal flowers waiting for your visit. You will feel relaxed and be refreshed by the pleasant aroma and the colorful flowers surrounding you. Learn about the benefts of cooking with herbs. From the herb gardens, you can admire the panoramic view of Kobe City and Osaka Bay through the greenery. The cityscape from the mountain is one of Kobe’s unique points. Don’t miss it!

Kobe Water
Kobe Water is popular worldwide as a high-quality water sourced from mountain streams. Many sailors admired it because the water loaded from Kobe did not get stale even after passing the Equator. Many ships anchored at Kobe Port specifically to load up on Kobe’s pure water. To this day, its purity is maintained and you can see this clean mountain stream along our hiking tour course. It looks emerald green as it flows. This is also one of this tour’s most popular points. You’ve never seen such pure water. Even close to a big city, you can enjoy some wonderful nature. This is Kobe. It’s not all about beef, the city is proud of its pure water too!

Architectural Heritage
Kobe is a famous port city known throughout the world. After over two hundred years of Japan’s closed-door policy, Kobe was one of the first ports in the country to open up to trade with foreign countries in 1868. As a gateway for overseas trade and cultural exchange with the West, modern culture and technology has been introduced to Kobe through the years. We can see many historical architectural symbols in the city, which are relatively easy to access for travelers. This same kind of heritage has remained in the mountain areas too. We pass some bridges and dams which are designated as Important Cultural Properties along our hiking route. Feel some of Kobe’s modernization by joining our tour.

NUNOBIKI Waterfall
Standing at a height of 43 meters, Nunobiki Waterfall has been selected as one of the one hundred best waterfalls in Japan. This waterfall has been loved by many people for over a thousand years. In days gone by, a lot of famous poets visited here and left behind many poems dedicated to this waterfall. This natural beauty is only 400 meters from the bullet train station. It is a quintessential Kobe sight. Feel how the international city of Kobe co-exists with abundant nature on our tour. Let’s discover Kobe together in the mountain air.
