In the morning, we had to check out from the hotel. We only stayed one night in Kobe. Tonight, we would stay in Osaka.

Today, we visited Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (DRI). They had 2 meseums, Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation. We only visited the first one. It was a big museum about the big earthquake (The Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake) that happened in Kobe on 17 January 1995. The museum was very complete. We could experience how it felt like during the earthquake through a simulation. We could watch a movie that told by one of the witness. I was crying while watching that movie. It was very sad. The earthquake caused large numbers of material and human lost. We also could see the memorabilia and other things about earthquake.

Before that, we had visited the department that handle earthquake mitigation in Kobe.

 We got explanation how Kobe city prepare for the next earthquake. Yeah... earthquake often happens in Japan, so it is very important to be always prepared for it. From the explanation, I could see that they were very prepared and they were supported by technology. 

From the museum, we went Kobe Harbor for lunch. The restaurant was situated at a shopping arcade. The menu was sea food. Yum yum, I liked fried shrimp and squid. After having lunch, on the way to our bus, we could buy souvenirs. I bought an umbrella. It was small and white with pink polka dots. It was matched with the jacket I bought in Kyoto. Ha ha ha ha, I always want pink stuffs.

Then, we continued our trip to Osaka.
