Yes, the tongue-twister of a name - "Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution" - is truly confusing. This is really a museum, a catalog, an archive... and much more of the terrible 1995 earthquake in Kobe. The 7-minute multimedia experience gives you a real feel of how horrible that fateful January morning was in 1995. There is an incredible amount of material for those wishing to understand and research not only this earthquake but also natural disasters in general and - also, especially - the human, family, community, private sector and government roles in such terrible situations. If you happen to be in Kobe, even for a few hours, do not miss this museum.
