Rokko Garden Terrace

Park / Green Space
A multipurpose facility located on Mt. Rokko, a tourist destination popular for its view of the nearby cityscape at night situated in Kobe’s Nada Ward. The facility hosts a café, restaurants, and shops centering around a grand viewing terrace. The area around the viewing tower is filled with quaint European-style buildings, creating a fairy tale-like atmosphere. Sights such as the streets of Kobe and the Akashi Strait can be viewed from various areas throughout the facility and visitors can enjoy different aspects of the area depending on the location, time of day, and season. The mesh domed Rokko-Shidare Observatory viewing area is lit up at night and is a must-see.
