:: kobe earthquake - 10 years on...::

Rekindling memories


Japanese children pray for victims at a park in Itami, near western Japanese port city of Kobe on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the 1995 Kobe earthquake on January 17 which killed over 6,400 people.


see Mainichi Interactive

i have been there in autumn 2003 - it is now a memorial park.
the japanese resilience to rebuild this city is a living proof that we all can overcome the tsunami tragedy.

- i believe this park still attracts loads of tourists: both local and overseas. this part of the wrecked port due to the earthquake was preserved to remember the tragedy.
