The Shin-Kobe Ropeway is one of the ways to ascend the southern slopes of the Rokko Mountain range. It departs from the Shin-Kobe Station. Along the ropeway you can see the Nunobiki Waterfall and the Nunobiki Herb Garden from above. At the Upper Station there is the observation deck that affords amazing views of Kobe. It is recommended to visit the deck at night time. After enjoying the views from above you can also enter the rest house where there is a café, souvenir shop, and restaurant. The rest house is located near the Upper Station entrance of the Nunobiki Herb Garden. If you do not wish to take the Shin-Kobe Ropeway, there are hiking trails available for those who wish to take their time and see the Nunobiki Waterfall up close.
