Kobe or Not Kobe

Japan JP-287330 received 07-09-2012

Sent by: ecc-crocus
From: Kobe, Japan
ID number: JP-287330
Notes: Kobe is the sixth largest city in Japan, with a population of 1.5 million people.  It is located in southern Japan, and it shares its metro area with Osaka and Kyoto.  The tower on this card is the Kobe Port Tower, a 354 ft. (108 m) lattice tower.  It was completed in 1963, and it sits near Osaka Bay, offering spectacular views of the bay and the city from its observation deck.  The strange-looking structure in front of the Kobe Port Tower is the Kobe Maritime Museum.  The lattice design is meant to look like the sails of a ship.
