Shin-Kobe Ropeway

Shortly after my arrival in Kobe I decided to get to business with some sight seeing. The biggest one to get crossed off of the list was the Shin-Kobe ropeway, a gondola which takes you up the Rokko mountains to the Nunobiki Herb Garden. The base of the ropeway is right outside of the Shin-Kobe subway stop, after exiting just head south and you'll eventually find a misplaced stairway built into the side of a shopping center which leads up to it. At the top you can find a draft beer, I found it difficult to enjoy the garden part, but soaking in the surroundings while enjoying a fresh beer was great.

The pathway outside of the garden reminded me of an island from the game Myst.
