Rokko Garden Terrace is full of events during summer vacation!

Hanshin Electric Railway Co., Ltd.
Rokko Garden Terrace is full of events during summer vacation! 1. Power word exhibition 2. Ice room opening & cold wind experience 3. Almost Hokkaido fair held
Rokko Garden Terrace, operated by Mt. Rokko Kanko Co., Ltd. (Head office: Nada Ward, Kobe City, President: Kimihiko Teranishi), is located at an altitude of approximately 880 m, so the temperature is about 5 degrees Celsius lower than in the city of Kobe, so it is cool even in summer. It’s a cool outing spot.
The “Weeping Museum 2024 Power Word Exhibition” is being held at the “Natural Experience Observatory Rokko Shidare (designed by Hiroshi Sambuichi)” in the area. This is an experiential art event held for the first time in Japan* with the theme of “power words” (words that have become a hot topic/words that have a strong impact), and a total of 12 artists have created works that you will be captivated by and will not be able to get out of your head. We are holding an
exhibition. Model and talent Anne Mika and junior high school video creator Chonmage Kozo have also cooperated in exhibiting, and the total number of views of videos related to this event posted on SNS by visitors has exceeded 10 million times (by 2024) (As of June 10th)! This event is a hot topic among young people.
*Researched on February 5, 2024 using the Tokyo National Research Institute for Cultural Properties database.
In addition, on Saturday, July 13th, the opening day of Rokko Shidare, the door of the Himuro, which stores ice during the winter, will be opened to let in the wind blowing over Mt. Rokko. Masu. This event has become a summer tradition of Mt. Rokko, and in the “wind room” inside the observatory, you can enjoy a “cold wind experience” where you can enjoy a cool breeze that is about 10 degrees cooler than the city of Kobe using only the power of nature. will also start.
The gourmet event “Hokkaido Fair” will be held for the first time from July 20th (Saturday) to September 1st (Sunday) at five food and beverage stores in the area. Mt. Rokko has many things in common with Hokkaido, such as its cool summer climate, local specialties such as Genghis Khan, and beautiful night views, so you can feel as if you are in Hokkaido. The three food and beverage outlets will serve gourmet food such as pork bowls made with ingredients from Hokkaido, and the two retail outlets will sell specialty products carefully selected from Hokkaido. In addition, we will also hold an “Almost Hokkaido Panel Exhibition” that introduces certain things about Mt. Rokko and Hokkaido that will make you understand, and an event where miniature horse Sunny-kun will come from Mt. Rokko Farm.

■What is “Ice cutting, ice room opening, and cold air experience”? Ice was a very valuable commodity until refrigerators became widespread. Mt. Rokko has a history of gathering and storing thick natural ice in the ponds on the mountain during the winter,
transporting it to the base from spring to summer, and selling it in the urban areas of Kobe and Osaka.
The road that carried the ice was called the “Ice Road,” and it still exists today as a hiking trail.
At the Rokko Shidare Nature Experience Observatory, we have been conducting ice cutting, a natural circulation mechanism devised based on this history, on the Great Cold Day around January 20th every year. To cut the ice, ice is created by collecting rainwater on the ice shelf located on the east side of the observatory, and then cut out using a chainsaw. This year’s event was canceled due to poor freezing due to the warm winter, but artificial snow was cut from the slopes of the nearby Mt. Rokko Snow Park and stored in the Himuro inside the observation deck. .
[Image 5:×166.jpg] Every year, on July 13th, the opening day of Rokko Shidare, the door of the ice room where ice is stored is opened to let in the wind blowing over Mt. Rokko. The wind that passes through the ice room turns into cold air and is drawn into the wind room through the elbow rests of the chairs in the “wind room” inside the observation deck. The temperature in the wind room is about 10 degrees lower than in the city of Kobe, creating a cool and comfortable space with the scent of cypress. The “cold wind experience” is an experience where you can enjoy cooling off using only the power of nature without using any electricity. From July 13th (Saturday) onwards, you can experience it for free until the ice runs out (separate Rokko Shidare admission fee required).
