Mountain · Nature / Park
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.
