A Highly Recommended Place for Night View of Kobe! Enjoy the Scenic View of the City from "Kobe City Hall".

The observatory in the lobby of the Kobe city hall (building 1) is not yet known as a major sightseeing spot, but we highly recommend visiting the site as it offers a grand view of the landscape of Kobe from the 24th floor, approximately 100 meters high from the ground. Not only you can see the South bay area of Kobe, but you will also be able to gaze out into Osaka in the East, and towards Akashi in the West of Kobe.

The building is open until 10 pm, so the night view is highly recommended as well.
The city hall is minutes away from Sannomiya station, so please come on by if you have the chance.
