Mt. Rokko ($10M View)
June 7, 2012. Mt. Rokko, Kobe, Japan.
Hmm… seems like wordpress has changed a little bit, I’m a little confused as to how to insert photos in new posts now Hopefully I’ll be able to figure it out again ><
Went to Mt. Rokko with my friend visiting from Singapore! I went up there many times when I was a little kid, but I rarely go up to see the night view. It was probably 3 or 4 years since I’ve last seen the view until this month!
The view from Mt. Rokko (in which you can see Kobe, Rokko Island, Port Island, etc.) is called the $10M view. Apparently, it used to be called $1M view because after WWII it took about $1M to keep the lights in that area of the city on or something like that… And then someone decided it’s more beautiful and thus the upgrade to $10M view… Ok I’m actually not sure. Lol.
It’s too bad the day we went up it was sort of foggy… So no clear view of the city really. But I guess I got some cool effects with the smog/fog!
