This half-day tour takes you to the outskirts of Kobe, to scenic Mt. Rokko. Opened to the public by Arthur Groom in 1901, Mt. Rokko quickly became a popular retreat for foreigners. Today, Mt. Rokko is the centerpiece of a popular sightseeing and hiking area stretching over six miles. With an elevation of 3,000 feet, it is the highest peak in the mountain range that spreads 19 miles from the northeast to southwest. Reach the summit via a funicular, then drive to Mt. Rokko Observation point to enjoy stunning views of Osaka Bay and the distant Awaji Island in the easternmost part of the Inland Sea. Departing Mt. Rokko, drive to the Sake Brewery Museum. Designated an Important Tangible National Cultural Property by Hyogo Prefecture, the museum was opened in 1978 on the site of an old brewery. Known for growing the best rice for sake production and its pure underground water, the region manufactures some of the most famous brands of sake in Japan. After your visit, rejoin your coach for your return to the ship.
