The best time to see the port tower would be at night when it is illuminated bright red. It makes for a lovely backdrop. The surrounding area is great the explore as well.

Had some time and wanted to check out the view. As others have said you get a similar view for free from City Hall. The fee was fair and it was not crowded on a Sat morning. Would not make a special trip for it...More

Other than the Kobe beef which is a must-try in this prosperous port city, a visit to the Kobe Port Tower is also a must-see in your Kobe attractions checklist. The tower may not be as imposing as those in other mega cities and may...More
