This place is to remind of us how terrible the earthquake was in 1995. Almost more than 20 years ago it happened here. The park is nicely presented to people who are visiting here. It could be nothing but somehow Japanese made this place special to remember it or to record and show how terrible it was for the next generation. If I didn’t come here and see it in my own eyes I would never know how terrible the earthquake is and how powerful it is to destroy everything.
The debris left over from the earthquake really remind you of how terrifying the earthquake was. The exhibits are also nicely placed and the video and display are nicely done.
