Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial Park, Kobe

(3.9/5 based on 130+ 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.

  •  It was shaking haven't experienced until now. Was a seismic intensity 4 in the Kagawa is totally different of cannot forget that. After a long long aftershocks have seen this exciting experience. The fire was reported after that. The situation at that time now, and is a monument to tell future generations. This is the place you want to visit us during a visit to Kobe.

  • Brought back memories of the great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake and Kobe Harbor land East of the pier. City at that time was still aftertaste of the bubble era, was changed by the disaster. By visiting here in the rebuilding of the then current Kobe city found scars of the earthquake is hardly the time to remember, and I felt the enormity of the disaster. To leave to future generations is saved in its original state.
