 The City of Kobe is in the narrow land between the Osaka Bay and the long range of the Rokko Mountains including many splendid night view spots, the very famous among foreign visitors as well as Japanese tourists.
Especially Maya San(Mt.Maya)'s Kikuseidai Observatory has been selected as one of the three night view spots in Japan for years.
But , it is a rather difficult excursion for tourists , especially foreigners to go around wonderful view points in one day without his own car,
because 3 or 4 companies run the regular bus ,without so frequent schedule in the seperate areas in the east mainly Mt.Rokko ,in the west including Mt.Maya. And more, there are different bus time schedules which change by a season.

I made and suggest the best or better substitute plan for this one day excursion.

Though by mainly making use of buses, I suggest two walking tours for approximately 30min.each.

And more, as you can use a one day discount round trip ticket, it is highly possible no need to pay for the additional transportation fee from and to your hotel.

But, do not forget reconfirming the exact bus time schedule by cheking the schedule board on every pole of bus stops, or asking a staff of cable station or hotel , a driver or other Japanese tourists around you during this tour.

Make a unforgettable memory in Kobe with a marvelous night view from the mountain.

・Transportation fee for a round trip from Kyoto.
No needed , If you purchase a discount round trip ticket "Rokko Maya Leisure Kippu, ticket "at the info center in Kawaramachi Eki, Sta. of Hnakyu Densha, Railway in advance , and take a Hankyu Densha train from Kawaramachi Eki, Sta. because it is included in the discount round trip ticket above mentioned, though earlier departure time of Kyoto is needed and one transfer to another train at Umeda Eki, Sta..
Taking JR trains from Kyoto Station would be a better choice, because every train toward the west bound goes to Kobe San no Miya Eki, Sta.directly without any transfer and much faster than taking Hankyu trains.

・ I DO recommend that this tour is taken by around 10 people, because;

they say another bus service will be available in case of exceeding the capacity.
2) One or two 30-min.-walking are included with stable passages which is both on paved and on soiled.
