About my commended Image:
Koube Bridge, Koube, Hyogo. Under the “Great Hanshin earthquake”, which occurred 20years ago, the city Kobe was severely damaged and the view of the city was completely changed. And 20 year after now, it’s hard to find a any scar of the earthquake in the city. The bridge was also damaged at the earth quake, but soon recovered and make a significant role in order for the remarkable rehabilitation of the post earthquake.
