  • Great view of the Kobe-Osaka metropolitan area in the day and at night. There is a viewing tower that you can climb up. Surrounding are many small shops selling local produces like jams, tea, fruit, juices, etc. Nearby is an excellent restaurant that serves Kobe beef. They have seats that entitles you a view of the city.
