Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial Park, Kobe

(3.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial Park a part of your Kobe vacation plans using our Kobe itinerary builder.
