Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake Museum Tips (2)

Earthquake museum

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.

The Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake Memorial Museum

This museum is dedicated to showing visitors the effects of the Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake that devastated Kobe city on January 1, 1995. The first two exhibits of the museum are videos. In the first video, which recreates the earthquake, be aware that most of the videos are not actual footage; they were simply created to show how the earthquake affected each area. Although the fact that the images are manufactured may be a little disappointing, it is still a good introduction to the rest of the museum. The second video is an account from a survivor of the earthquake.

From there, you reach the main exhibit room, which features artifacts from the earthquake. There are many pictures from the earthquake along the wall, and information in English, Chinese, and Korean can be read in certain areas. It also features how the city dealt with the earthquake and the reconstruction of Kobe City after the earthquake.

The entrance fee is 500 yen for adults. College students can enter for 400 yen with university I.D. You can also purchase a joint-ticket for 800 yen (640 yen for college students) that gives you entrance to this museum and the adjoining Human Renovation Museum. The museum is closed on Mondays.
