Because of the recent typhoon, the usual way up Mt Rokko is closed due to slips. The way up Rokko San, from Hankyu Rokko, is therefore up the mountain through the toll tunnel to 'Ura Rokko'. As you come to the toll point (after the tunnel) take the left hand lane. After the toll, turn first (very immediate) left. In other words, the turning is immediately after the toll point. If you are in the right (ETC) lane you will need to make a very, very sharp left turn. This is the route up to the top of the mountain. You come to traffic lights. Turn right, go past Rokko San Hotel etc. Once you pass the YMCA (on right) SLOW DOWN. The lane to Michael's house is first right. You will know if you have gone too far because you will see the barriers blocking the road down....
The route along the top of Rokko San, from the West (Sannomiya etc.) is also closed. The route along the top from the East (Ashiya) seems to be open.
Below is the general route and to the right are detailed instructions. If you need further help, please phone 090 5897 6793 or 080 4235 1555
