Nature / Park
Stop for a moment of reflection at Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial Park, a small but poignant and evocative reminder of nature's incredible power. In the city closest to the epicenter of the violent earthquake, witness the preserved, cracked, and jolted promenade sloping into the river, with lampposts pointing at bizarre angles from the water. Examine the photographic displays and information boards, which paint a picture of the scene at the time of the devastating earthquake. The site offers plenty of information in English.

  • Port of Kobe are places that have been affected by other serious movements, Hachioji, one of traditional Japanese time. Those traces are still keeper and is open to visitors with the atmosphere. Even if the time is over for many years, but the people here have never forgotten them 10 times, event.

  • Visit the port of Kobe earthquake was really educational for me. They been rebuilt the city again in 4 years.. and this city was really good.  more »
  • , 1995 Kobe Quake when the land was preserved, and the appearance of the Gala. Just how terrifying earthquake, in direct is in Bossier. Now free from the earthquake should be prepared well for a non-urinarado earthquake thought to that.

  • It's nice to stroll around here. I also caught a trained monkey show here. Very entertaining!
  • Worth a visit if you are local, but I'd have been disappointed if I had made a specific trip. Quite a small area preserved but shows the destructive force very well
  • Memorial of a city struck by a big earthquake and recovered after so much loss of life and property.. there is a Corden off part of old earthquake stricken pier of the port as part of the memorial. My pic only shows calm water.
  • A moving memorial to the 1995 Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake. No entrance fee. Destroyed part of Meriken Koen left as was after the earthquake. There are also some plaques in English with information about how the Port of Kobe was damaged during the quake.
  • A cool place to visit, you should check it out!
