Japan Holiday / Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens (2)


More photos from Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens.


The roses were nearly finished but there were still some out, these were very fragrant. All from David Austin.


After lunch, we walked down the hill path to the middle station of the ropeway looking at the flowers as we went. Although the flower beds were not very large it was fun to see them. Not such a long distance.


Cosmos area. Not a large area but still very pretty.


Saw a beautiful butterfly.

Hammocks, in case you need a rest.



The cosmos in this area were hardly out yet. I don’t know if it’s to do the position or they plant them at different time.


So, we took the ropeway from the middle station back down to Shin Kobe, then we decided to walk back to the apartment. It was a bit tough for me, we had to walk up the slope for quite a while before walking down, then up again. Also it was so hot. The temperature was only 21C, which doesn’t sound very hot, but it was around 2:30pm, probably the hottest time of the day. Not bad in the shade but it felt very hot under the sun, even with a parasol, specially because we were walking up and down hills. I was exhausted by the time we got back. I am happy, though, that I walked 8,500 steps again today.
