Whee! Piggletino is taking a trip to Shin-Kobe by Shinkansen! That’s how the bullet trains look like; pretty cool isn’t it?

Guess where Piggletino is?

That’s right! It’s the Shin-Kobe Ropeway (新神戸ロープウェー, cable car) that takes us up the slopes of the Rokko Mountain Chain, towards the Nunobiki Herb Gardens!

Look!! That is the 43metres Nunobiki Waterfall. Did you know, that it got its name because it looked like a hanging cloth? Ah, what a great view Piggletino has from here! Don’t miss this if you ever come to Kobe!

And after the Ropeway ride, Piggletino welcomes everyone to the top station of the Kobe Nunobiki Herb Garden!

Here, you will find local produce of honey, a rest house, beautiful rose gardens, a fragrance house that teaches you about the flower extracts used in perfumes, and a glasshouse growing seasonal fruits and flowers!
