Overview :

1. A harmony of verdant nature and people's history. Look forward to a peaceful time and vast panoramic scenery.
2. Mt. Rokko is relatively close to the Kobe metropolitan area, and is loved by citizens and tourists alike as a spot where they can freely enjoy Mother Nature.
This tour will visit Mt. Rokko, which has a stylish atmosphere and is seeing an increase in tourism, as well as Mt. Maya, which is dotted with spots loved by locals, and introduce participants to their highlights.
Mt. Rokko is close to areas where people have been living since long ago, and due to the progression of tree-clearing for various purposes, it existed as a devastated mountain. However, due to concerns of landslide disasters befalling metropolitan areas, large-scale afforestation was begun from the 1900s. Since then, the forests have been protected by many citizens, leading to everyone being able to enjoy its current nature-rich visage.
This tour will first use a ropeway and cable to climb Mt. Maya and head for Kikuseidai where you can enjoy the picturesque scenery. The view from this opens up towards the ocean, so you can gaze out at not only the urban areas of Kobe, but also the sparkling ocean and Akashi Strait. After spending some quiet time at an old temple with more than 1,300 years of history, take a bus to Mt. Rokko and enjoy a botanical garden and lunch at an observation deck cafe. After that, take a stroll on Mt. Rokko as you gaze down at the picturesque scenery from the summit.
Head out on a trip to learn of the history lurking in the mountains of Kobe and experience the beauty of Mother Nature.
3. Look out on the wonderful view that spans from Kobe to the Osaka Plain.
Spend some quiet time at a historical temple.
Enjoy some lunch on the summit looking down on the Kobe metropolitan area.
Gaze at the seasonal light art on an observation deck made with cypress wood.
4. This is a private tour that can be booked for 1 to 6 people.
Customers can have an enjoyable tour with people they know at their own pace.
