  • The great Hanshin Awaji earthquake that sparked volunteers will take root in Japanese. The original located in the Meriken Park, 10 minutes walk from the town. Imagine the magnitude of the quake at the crumbling concrete foundation much leans the streetlamp. I thought it was taking a bit of time where you want to visit. Also take photos big and beautiful Tower.

  • Although a small piece, but next to the picture text voice is very detailed, it is worth to see, I live beside, heart is to come here to see. It's three minutes ' walk from the Okura Hotel.

  • Meriken Park with the symbol of Kobe port Tower there. The port collapsed seawall and convey to future generations the fury of the earthquake tilted light, obsolete, leaving soon after the quake. Twilight is at the monument reflects the tower. Also, view port Tower and Kobe Maritime Museum illuminated look of the Orange sky will be offices about camera.

  • Good. Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial Park, 2-2 Hatobacho, Chuo, Kobe, Hyōgo-ken
  • 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.
  • You can see the real earthquake like broken road. They preserved real earthquake.
