We traveled up there for the snow park, it's a man-made snow park. We rent the suit and gloves there. We built snowman and played slide. It was fun!! though it's not real snow but it's still fun things to do with children.

Nice uphill via tram (no scenery) and cool spot for the sunset. A pity it's really a lot of folks fighting for the same small area for the night view. Food place was crowded for the night view.

I always like to start at the top of anything and this is no exception. You get fabulous views from all directions so it’s worth the effort.

At the time of my visit, the low clouds obscured the view of Kobe port. There is an English town on top of the mountain, which are shops selling souvenirs. Do not come here if the clouds are low, nothing to do since can't see...More
