Abstract:

The most characteristic point of the Port of Kobe is the building of man-made islands: Port Island and Rokko Island, where the port facilities and container terminals have been arranged at their circumferential parts - with urban functions such as international conference and exhibition halls, office buildings, hotels, commercial districts and a housing complex in their central parts. This has resulted from Kobe's specific conditions that the port facilities be adjacent to the urban district.
