Head up Mt. Maya to gain extensive views from its prominent peak. Rising to an elevation of 698.6 m (2,292 ft), the mountain represents one of the major summits in the range, in both its height and popularity with visitors. A lot of this popularity comes from accessibility, with a cable car service whisking you up to the top. Alternatively, you can take the easy, pleasant hike up. The city and its coastline below form a memorable sight, and the cable car service means you don't have to worry about making it back down before the light goes.

Super fantastic, memorable view There is a glow in the dark path in the top of the mountain which is super cool at night! Highly recommended. Unexpected good thing from my trip!
Very nice scenery. Can see Kobe and Osaka night scenes there. Need to take bus no 2 or no 18, then get on a tram to get to the mount top. A bit of a trouble but the view there certainly worth it. There is almost nothing but a cafe there. The indoor window seats of the cafe would be very helpful in a cold night.
