Kobe Port Tower, Chuo

#8 of 395 in Things to do in Kobe
Soak up panoramic views from the top of Kobe Port Tower, an icon of the city's skyline. The structure remains famous for its hyperboloid lattice structure, reminiscent of a Japanese drum. From the observation platform, you can witness views reaching as far as the peaks of Mount Rokko and the distant Senshu region. A glass floor reveals a 75 m (246 ft) drop and provides additional vistas to enjoy. See the city from different angles at the revolving cafe, rotating a full circle every 20 minutes, time enough for cup of something hot. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Kobe trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Amazing watch out. Can see the whole Osaka Bay (Kobe) when the weather is good. Nearby are so many other attractions, restaurants and shopping malls. Transportation is well designed and convenience. Must go check point in Kobe.
  • Good place to see Kobe port area. When you come here at the end of year. You can not buy ticket for tower and marine museum but only tower entrance ticket. Anyway, it's good place.
