(rare and hot)!” EVENT~


Mt. Rokko Snow Park proudly marked its 60th anniversary this season. It is the closest facility that exclusively offers various fun winter-related activities in the Kobe area. The Snow Park is conveniently situated only about 35 minutes away from downtown Kobe by car.

Commemorating its 60th anniversary, a variety of events with the tagline “ROKKO ATSU-TSU-TSU…” have been taking place. Atsu(i) in Japanese has multiple meanings and one of them is “a rare chance”. Don’t forget this rare chance to enjoy hot and fun winter sports such as skiing, snowboarding, etc.
