NORTH VIEW

To the north, the skyline of Kobe can be seen stretching out over the foothills of Mt. Rokko. Also visible are the Western-style buildings of Kitano and the bustling centers of Sannomiya and Motomachi. This view offers a picturesque view overlooking the exotic port city of Kobe.

EAST VIEW

As a port city, Kobe prides itself in its waterfront, particularly Meriken Park. Just past this lies Kobe Port Terminal, where foreign cruise ships can be found at dock, and the landscape of Port Island and Rokko Island.

WEST VIEW

Look out upon where the city meets the harbor. Here you can find the Chuo Terminal on Naka-Pier, where sightseeing boats arrive and depart regularly, and the ocean-view cathedral of the Notre Dame Kobe, a popular location for weddings. To the north stretches Mt. Hachibuse, and in the distance lies Awaji Island.

SOUTH VIEW

The view south features Harborland, Mosaic, and the recently renovated Ferris wheel offering a variety of illumination creations. Look down over Naka-Pier, bustling with large passenger ships and other vessels, or out to Kobe Airport and Port Island.
