Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, Kobe

(130 reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
Witness the fallout of a natural disaster at Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution, a facility established to relate experiences and lessons learned from the Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of 1995, so that future generations might be better prepared for such an event. Through informative and pictoral exhibits, as well as film and sculptured replicas of streets, shown in their post-quake state, you'll learn about the science behind these disasters. Get a sense of the profound effect earthquakes have on communities, and what measures are being taken to reduce the level of loss in the future. You can take a tour with an English-speaking guide, though most exhibits include English translations. Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Kobe Edition.
