These include:

– Mt. Maya Kikuseidai Viewpoint: Elevation approximately 690m
– Hotel de Maya: Elevation approximately 700m

For coming up for the views the two main ways to get here are the Rokko Cable Car and the Maya Viewline. From the back side, coming from Arima, there is the Rokko-Arima Ropeway.

For those interested in a bit of history about the two, these are two very nice sites with historical information in English:
