Rokko Alpine Botanical Garden六甲高山植物園

Botanical Garden

This is an historic botanical garden which opened in 1933 near the top of Mt. Rokko in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture. Approximately 1,500 species of alpine plants and plants from cold climates from around the world are planted in the garden of about 50,000 square meters making use of the climate which is similar to the southern part of Hokkaido. Highlights include various rock gardens, flower gardens and wetlands where alpine plants can be viewed in an environment close to an alpine setting. In addition to enjoying seasonal flowers and the colors of the autumn leaves, visitors can enjoy coffee, sweets, light refreshments and other items at a mountain-lodge-style café where sunbeam shines through branches of trees.

Tranquil. Lovely laid out gardens which is not overly crowded with either locals or tourists. Easy access from cablecar with connecting bus.

Take my tip ... ride the ropeway to the top and walk down .. it is so much easier than walking up ! Lots of interesting plants and fabulous views.

          Hyogo Main 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.
