Mt. Rokko provides a breathtaking view with its three waterfalls, a reservoir and a well-maintained herb garden. Exploring its silent, secluded and picturesque interiors is a trekker’s delight. Two paths, barely 50 metres apart, lead to two very different destinations in Kobe. While the first...More

Great day tripper or you can stay a night or Two in Arima. Great overview of Kobe. I’m sure it’s awesome at night
