The Earthquake Fault observation Museum Apr 21, 2012
In 1891, the Nobi Earthquake occurred. It measured magnitude 8. The death toll from the earthquake reached about 7,300. It caused a 6m vertical offset and 8m left lateral offset. The Neodani earthquake fault zone about 80km long appeared. To observe the underground area of the fault, a trench was dug and you can see a 6m vertical offset. In 1992 this Earthquake Fault observation Museum was constructed. After that we had Kobe earthquake in 1995, and besides that, in 2011 Tohoku earthquake had occurred. We live in a country subject to frequent earthquakes. I think more people should show concern about seismology.

After Kobe earthquake, Nojima Fault Preservation Museum was also built in Awaji Island. I think the local people want to preserve the terrible scars for posterity as lessons.

I live in California, which is very prone to the shaking too, but they have not built a museum anything like that here. Interesting to see what they have done. :D
