Overview

The Umanose trail is a wonderful small hike in Kobe city, it offers beautiful views with not much effort, and an exciting rocky section with some exposure for those afraid of heights. Although Mt. Rokko gets most of the attention, the views here have more diversity and it's much easier to access. It doesn't get too busy and is worth a day trip from Kyoto or Osaka.
