At the base of the mountain you take a cable car up to actual park (570yen 1 way, 1000yen both ways). Mt. Rokko is 931m high and oversees nearly the entire metropolitan area. There are several observation decks, a botanical garden, and shops along the way. We stopped at an observation deck once we got off the cable car and got some great pictures. We ...
