It is a park in the center of the city, commemorating the Hanshin Earthquake. There are clocks that fell during the Hanshin Earthquake, which is fixed at the time of the earthquake.
This park is to commemorate the Hanshin earthquake. When there was the Hanshin Earthquake, the falling clocks were frozen at that time. There are also many shades of flowers, trees, and trees in the park, which is a good place for everyone to rest and entertain on weekends.
Higashiyuenji Park is a street park built to commemorate the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake in January 1995. The design of the park is highly respected by the seniors in domestic gardening circles. Opposite is the city hall of Kobe. The flower clock on the side was the prototype of the domestic flower clock. The park is not like the domestic one. A tall monument will be built as a memorial. The design here is very close to the visitors, allowing people to blend into it during the tour.
The time point of the entrance sculpture is the moment of the earthquake; the brick-red wall is the handprint wall of the victims; the sinking ground is the ground before the earthquake, with water flowing inside. There are also lanterns and many sculptures. The memorial facility is built with red bricks broken after the earthquake. Underground is the spiritual place for the victims...
This is a downtown park with a clean environment and a large and tidy lawn. There are mainly bells that fell during the Hanshin earthquake. It is quite meaningful to frame the earthquake at this moment.
It is the earliest Western-style park in Japan, so I personally feel that the historical significance is greater than the main body, because if you look at it, it is actually an ordinary and slightly distinctive Western-style park (in fact, there are more Western sculptures).
Right next to the city hall, there are a lot of mosquitoes in the summer, and in the winter it is the venue of Kobe Luminari. There were many food stalls at that time, mainly for the light show to commemorate the Kobe earthquake~
