Japan Holiday / Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens


It was a beautiful day today again, so we wanted to go out somewhere and settled on the “Kobe Nunobiki Herb Gardens”, which you get to by a ropeway from Shin Kobe. It opened when we were living in Kobe (I found out that it opened in 1991) and I do remember going up there once but at that time there was hardly anything to see. I’d read that there are many cosmos in bloom now so we went.


As the weather was so great, the view was fantastic.

They were having a German Fair and my husband wanted to have German sausages – so we decided to have lunch here. We bought 2 bottles of German beer, a set of 6 kinds of German sausages and some Potato & Cheese Balls.


These look like Takoyaki but they are potato & cheese balls. They were much more cheesy than I expected and I didn’t enjoy them very much so after having a few bits of sausages and a couple of potato & cheese balls I went back and got a black curry and my husband finished the rest.


Then my husband had a Milk & Honey Soft Ice Cream, which he enjoyed very much.


It was hot under the sun but very comfortable in the shade, so we relaxed here with our beers and lingered a little.


I have too many photos to blog – so will continue in the next post.
