I came to Kobe for the first time and we visited the "Earthquake Museum". I was really touched by the suffering of the Kobe people when the quake happened. One of your museum staff explains the exhibits to us in person. Very friendly of him. Thank you again for that. どうもありがとう
Good place to learn about the horrors and effects of the Kobe Earthquake and how it affected the people. Many videos and exhibits show the devastating effects of the natural disaster, and also tell you what the Japanese did to recover. There are also many volunteers at the site, some elderly, who are extremely friendly and answer whatever question you have for them.
