Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial Park, Kobe

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

  • It's nice to stroll around here. I also caught a trained monkey show here. Very entertaining!
  • 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!
  • Simple memorial, certainly nothing compared to the museum on the other side of town but worth a quick stop.
