Kobe Nunobiki Herb Garden And Ropeway - Review

The layout of this attraction can be mildly confusing to foreigners: the thing to remember is that this is TWO attractions, a cable car ropeway from the foot of the hill, and the herb garden the cable car takes you to at the top of the mountain.

The ride is about 10 minutes long and takes you over iconic views - Nunobiki waterfall and, the NunobikiGohonmatsu dam, and of course, spectacular panoramas of Kobe itself, and the Seto Inland Sea. It's hard to decide which is a better time to ride, the daytime or the evening.

The journey's end greets you with a lovely observation deck. Selfie time. There's a cafe, restaurant and shop at the pretty half-timbered house. Check out the many different blooms at the musical Rose Symphony Garden. The exquisite herb garden itself has about 75,000 herbs and 2000 flowers! Visit the Kobe confectionery factory Honey Bee. Enjoy a herbal foot bath.

It's possible to simply hike up to the herb garden instead of taking the ropeway, skipping the rose garden below. Or you could take the ropeway halfway to the Kaze no Oka station, get off, and then continue to climb to the top. Or you could skip the ropeway on your way back and hike down.

Kobe Nunobiki Herb Garden And Ropeway, Kobe Reviews

  • Great place to visit. The gardens are quite nice, especially the rose garden. In addition there are a few places for food and snacks on the top where you can enjoy a great view over Kobe. I would recommend to walk down the mountain, as you can get close to the Nunobiki waterfalls. The walk down is listed to take 90min, I did it with my girlfriend in an hour. It mostly depends on how used you are to going down steep slopes. If you are going with kids there are spaces for them to play several places in the garden area.

  • Beautiful views from the top. I went during golden week and despite being a busy season it still felt peaceful and relaxing up there. The ropeway was a lot of fun! Nice flower gardens and some nice cafes. You MUST eat the ice cream up there! It’s literally the nicest ice cream I have ever had!

  • Great view over Kobe port from the top of the garden after taking the cable car. Various themed areas and buildings with good collection of herbs and flowers along the winding way downhill. Excellent place for family outdoor getaway. In one of the buildings, at 2F, there was an exhibition featuring spices around the world and the corresponding herbal ingredients. Very educational.

  • Beautiful place with good views BUT we weren't able to take the cable car back down due to "bad weather". Very poor organisation when the cable car was stopped. Would advise checking with them before buying a return ticket as this marred our experience.

  • Nice place to visit. There are flowers season every 2 months. Plans ahead
