Mt. Rokko (六甲山天覧台)


Observatory / Outlook

Mr. Rokko has a variety of leisure facilities including a golf course, snow park, botanical garden and outdoor obstacle course. The mountain-top’s Rokko Garden Terrace has a fashionable café restaurant and shops selling miscellaneous goods and souvenirs, and there is also the Rokko-Shidare Observatory that looks almost like a single bush.

          Hyogo Areas


          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.
