Travel Guide - Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution

InformationInformation

On January 17, 1995, a huge M7.3 earthquake occurred in Hyogo prefecture. The Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake caused massive damage to Kobe City and its surrounding area. Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (DRI) is a museum which contributes to a world-wide disaster reduction by making use of the experiences and lessons learned from the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake.
DRI offers exhibits related to the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and other disasters as well as exhibits about disaster prevention and disaster mitigation in the future. Materials related to the earthquake disaster, which were offered by the victims, are also displayed.
At "1.17 Theater", you can virtually experience the earthquake's tremendous power and devastation by watching films with special effects. The images in which buildings, houses, highways and other structures violently trembled and collapsed are very shocking.
DRI also displays diorama sets which replicate the aftermath of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake as well as other materials related to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
