Kobe Port Tower, Chuo

#9 of 396 in Things to do in Kobe
Soak up panoramic views from the top of Kobe Port Tower, an icon of the city's skyline. The structure remains famous for its hyperboloid lattice structure, reminiscent of a Japanese drum. From the observation platform, you can witness views reaching as far as the peaks of Mount Rokko and the distant Senshu region. A glass floor reveals a 75 m (246 ft) drop and provides additional vistas to enjoy. See the city from different angles at the revolving cafe, rotating a full circle every 20 minutes, time enough for cup of something hot. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Kobe trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • After going to Kobe Port Onsen Lotus, we went to Port Tower for a walk. The inside was smaller than I thought, and I thought it was a souvenir, but the inside was surprisingly small and the souvenir shop was small, and it was regrettable that there were not so many Kobe souvenirs that I wanted to buy. If you climb up to the top, the view may be good.

  • Kobe Port Tower Speaking of Kobe, it is Kobe Port Tower. I went there for the first time in a long time, but the building was getting old, but I endured that earthquake. It's amazing. It is worth climbing to the observatory once. The night view is beautiful.

  • Amazing watch out. Can see the whole Osaka Bay (Kobe) when the weather is good. Nearby are so many other attractions, restaurants and shopping malls. Transportation is well designed and convenience. Must go check point in Kobe.
  • Good place to see Kobe port area. When you come here at the end of year. You can not buy ticket for tower and marine museum but only tower entrance ticket. Anyway, it's good place.
