Took.the cable car up for a birds eye view of local.highlights. nice excursion but would not recommend it as standalone. Best done in conjunction with other attractions in the area or onward to arima onsen via cable car . Shuttle buses connect cable stations and attractions. Lovely views of countryside and cable car was gorgeous.

If you have time this is a nice excursion. The music box museum is interesting,but a walk in the botanic gardens is very nice. In summer it is a good place to get away from the heat of the city. Take a lunch box and enjoy the tranquility of the mountain.

We came down Mt. Rokko on this beautifully maintained funicular cable car that has been operating for about 75 years.

It travels down a wooded glen with streams and flowering trees and you catch glimpses of the city as you go down. Very... More

Well-maintained quaint cable cars run very efficiently. There is some imbalance and eerie sounds when it runs, but the level of teh gradient explains it all. Definitely worth the visit.

The cable car is clean and efficient. You get a nice view on the way up to Mt Rokko. The steps may be slightly challenging to the elderly and the physically challenged.

Not so easy to find cable car actually, so when we arrived there, we are a little bit excited to take the cable car, even not so high. On the way in the cable car, we could see some different view. very good for kids to have fun there

You can board the tram at Rokko Cablecar station at the foot of Rokko Mountain. To get there from Rokko Station (Hankyu) is to take Bus 16 100m away from after leaving the train station and crossing the railway tracks. Bus 16 accepts Kansai Thru Pass so it is part of the paid ticket if you have purchased on. The... More
