Enjoy a spectacular view from Rokko Mountain at a relaxing café at the top of the mountain
Linger over dazzling night views
March 20, 2017

The Tenran Cafe is adjacent to the Tenran Observatory, which offers stunning views of Kobe and the outlying Hanshin area. The cafe is warm and cozy in cold weather (thanks to the wood burning stove), with a casual, modern vibe. The menu has speciality items, such as Rokko Mountain beer, local sake, and Kobe Wine. The food menu offers pizza, curry, pastas, sweets, etc. In warm weather, the outdoor terrace is a delightful place to enjoy the panorama. The sparkling night view is especially popular, so it is recommended to arrive before sundown to get good seats!

I’m from Toronto, Canada and have lived in Japan for 17 years, first in Kobe and now in Ashiya. I am passionate about food, wine, sake, art, books, movies and travel. I enjoy studying Japanese and French, and in my free time, I practice and teach Shotokan karate.

TENRAN cafe stands on the observation deck ("tenran-dai" in Japanese) at Mt. Rokko. Taking Rokko Cable Car and arriving at Rokko-Sanjo Station at 737m, you will be impressed by the stunning views of Hanshin area in distance.The cafe menu features well-selected local ingredients, such as "Kobe Water" drip brewing coffee. TENRAN Cafe provides "10 million dollar" stunning night views of Kobe while enjoying drinks.
