Kobe

Kobe is a city with ancient traditions, so much so that, in the distant past, it was the former capital of Japan. It is located on the island of Honshū.

The Shin-Kobe Ropeway goes up as far as the southern foothills of the Rokko mountain range. During the ascent, you will pass near the Nunobiki waterfalls and the Nunobiki Herb Garden. When you reach the top of the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge, you will enjoy a spectacular view of Kobe both at day and at night. A Sorakuen, a traditional Japanese landscape garden, is located in the center of Kobe. Kobe Harborland is a shopping destination along the promenade of the port area, where there are many cafes, restaurants, shops and other types of entertainment.
