BE KOBE(Bikoube) says, "EarthquakeThe message of 20 years from Kobe” was created as a message that brought together many people's thoughts that “the most attractive of Kobe is people”. When translated literally, it means "be it in Kobe" or "let's be like Kobe". "Kobe-likeness" here means the thoughts of the people "I will do my best for people" after the earthquake, and the "advanced and open-mindedness" cultivated in the history of 150 years of opening the port. And it is the temperament of people that is rich in creativity and internationality.[47].
