This was an interesting ride with good views of the Kobe harbor. We were here in late March but most of the flowers were not in bloom yet. There was still stuff to see and it was a pleasant visit.

This was a lovely ride up the mountain, but it cost $14 for a round trip. If it were warmer weather, I would've just hiked it. The staff is very nice and the views were beautiful.
