East Rokko Observatory (東六甲展望台)

4.0

Observatory / Outlook

An observatory located close to the Hoden Gate and the Ashiya Gate on the Royu Driveway. A part of Setonaikai National Park, the observatory has been selected for inclusion in a list of Japan's 100 most beautiful night views due to the splendor of the city lights and starry sky visible from its location 645 meters above sea level. Used to film scenes for television dramas, visitors are also encouraged to enjoy a sunrise or sunset from the observatory. The observatory's most attractive feature is its expansive panoramic view which encompasses Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport, Awaji Island, Tomogashima Island, and the western Kansai region. A cafe operates at the observatory on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays and offers takeout. Visitors can also pick up tourism pamphlets here.

          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
