Rokkō Island 六甲アイランド

Rokkō Island is the second major artificial island in Higashinada-ku located in the southeast region. The island was constructed from reclaimed land between 1973 and 1992 and the island was one of the harder hit areas in Kobe during the Hanshin Earthquake. Most if not all of the island is build around new architectural styles and feels almost surgically sterile compared to the mixed architecture and history of Kobe just across the port.
