Kobe photos 1997


Japan facts & history in brief


is on the south coast of Honshu Island and one of the most important seaports of Japan.
Was founded in the 1100's, and is an important centre of heavy industry, shipbuilding.
Kobe became important after Japan began trading with other countries in the 1800's.
Since the 1950s Kobe is Japan's leading export and import centre.
On the 16th January, 1995, a strong earthquake in the Kobe area caused over 5,000 deaths and extensive property damage.

Population about 2 million.

We couldn't find the 'conducted sightseeing bus' stop after our arrival at Kobe.

A pretty, friendly, young Japanese lady (Kobe 1), who could speak good English was running around for us trying to found out where the bus stops.

Once she found out the location, she walked us to it.

Thank you very much, hope you'll read this some day.
