Ushidō Travel: Mount Rokko (六甲山) Pasture and Kobe Cheese House
If you’re looking for a nice, relaxing Kansai day out with your little calves and heifers, consider the Mount Rokko Pasture and Kobe Cheese House on Mount Rokko, just outside Kobe. No history or temples here, just lots of cute cows and sheep. As a bonus, from now through mid-July, the lavender fields are in bloom.
There’s also a very cool museum of musical automata (music boxes, player pianos, etc.) nearby called the Hall of Halls. Sadly, there’s not much information about it in English, so my best advice is to feed this link into your favorite online Japanese translator. Or ask about it at one of the tourist information centers in the Kobe and Shin-Kobe train stations.
