Rokkō Island (六甲アイランド, Rokkō Airando) is the second major artificial island in Higashinada-ku, Kobe, Japan located in the southeast region at Port of Kobe. The island was constructed from reclaimed land between 1973 and 1992. It has a 3.4 km by 2 km rectangular shape, and covers 5.80 km². The island was one of the hardest hit areas in Kobe during the Great Hanshin earthquake. Rokkō Island contains hotels, sports and conventions facilities, markets, a water amusement park, sea view apartment buildings, the Kobe Fashion Museum, two international schools, container yards, wharves, and port facilities. The Rokko Liner connects the island to JR Sumiyoshi Station, stopping at several points along the way.
The Rokkō Liner divides the apartments to two different sections: east and west.(Wikipedia)
