"Earthquake museum" Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake Museum Tip by kikko

  Disaster Reduction & Human Renovation Institution

If you are interested in the history of Kobe then you will also want to learn about the terrible date 1995.1.17- where the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake destroyed a major part of Kobe and other cities in the Kansai area.
The exhibition is mostly held in a neutral style, the photos and things exposed talk for themselves. We let the other visitors rush by and could then approfit from a private volunteer guide who showed and explained us everything. Not that this was needed, as most things are written in English as well, but it was very moving how we were looked after and we could ask hundreds of questions.

Address: near JR Nada Station
Directions: From Nada Station walk towards the sea; there will be indications. About 10mins walk.
Phone: 078-262-5060
