Kobe’s Meriken Park

Filed under: Domestic, Kansai, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 4:01 pm

After strolling around Kitano-cho, we headed over to Meriken Park, where the port of Kobe is. We had planned to go up Mt. Rokko and take in the night view, which is supposed to be one of the best 3 night views in Japan. (Japan likes counting all it’s best of’s in groups of 3.) However, at the tourist office, they advised us that in the rain, we wouldn’t be able to see anything from the mountain and we ought to try a place closer to the ground. They suggested Meriken Park’s Port Tower.
