The Kobe Maritime Museum is located in Meriken Park next to the Kobe Port Tower.

Built in 1987, and designed by the cities Harbor Maintenance Group, it's most dominating feature is the roof constructed of white pipe in the form of sails.

I didn't go inside, but I've heard that as maritime museums go it's not that great, the displays being nearly all models and not real boats.

It's open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday thru Sunday, and entrance is 600 yen for adults, 300 for kids.

While I was there a storm approached and the dark cluds gave me a dramatic background for the photos.

    The first image is very dramatic. I#d always wondered how the Museum would look outside. You get to see many images from the inside.

    I love your blog it brings a strange world closer.
