Great little side trip. You can go up and back down, or schedule a little more time and visit the herb garden. Can’t go wrong either way!

This is located very near the JR Shinkobe station where the Shinkansen stops. The ropeway takes you on to the top of the hill to what is called the Herb Garden. The price of 2 way ride is 1500 yen( one way 950 yen) which...More

It was a good choice to go on the Kobe Nunobiki Ropeway activity! We went on the cable car ride with friends to bask in flowers, pre-autumn views and sites. A definite must if you want to experience nature and culture. A museum on the...More

The ropeway is located next to Shin-Kobe Station which is why it's also called Shin-Kobe Ropeway. I went on a weekday morning and it wasn't crowded at all. There is a hiking trail if you want to skip the Ropeway but I prefer the Ropeway....More

Questions & Answers

Well only be in Kobe for a day and unfortunately it will be a Sunday and we want to go to the Herb Garden and ride the Ropeway both ways. Earlier we will be going to Kobe Sannomiya Station on the Port Liner from the Diamond Princess. Friends used the City Loop Bus to get there then returned to their ship but after reading several reviews saying how difficult it can be to get a ride on this as it’s often full when it gets to your stop and doesn’t take on more passengers. With limited time my husband is e trembly nervous that this will happen to us. I’ve tried to research getting the Shin Kobe subway train out to the Ropeway but I become extremely confused. Also there are conflicting stories about how far yo need to walk. Walking is some way a challenge for me so a difficult ult walk is not really what I’d like. Can anyone assist please .. if we need to get the train to Shin Kobe and back can anyone outline an easy way to do so. Sorry about the length of this enquiry.
