jun14. Kobe, Japan.
What an amazing experience. So few things can match the feeling of walking through the past, through other people’s memories and experiences, and trying to imagine for yourself what it must have been like. Yet another way for us all to connect in the past, present, and future.

In 1887, the overseas Chinese community living in Kobe, established Kanteibyo. It is dedicated to Guan Yu, a famous Chinese warrior from the Three Kingdoms Period. He is known to the Japanese as Kan-u. On 5 June 1945, Kanteibyo was destroyed by allied bombing in WWll. On 16 January 1977, it was destroyed by fire, and then again, in 1995, it was damaged by the Kobe earthquake. The last restoration was 14 February 1999.
