Motivation for this project
Our topic was about “architecture” so we thought about
researching about architectures in Kobe.
We thought Port tower is a great symbol of Kobe so we decided to
research about Port tower, plus even though it is a famous
architecture in Kobe we did not know anything about it.
At first, we were not that interested in this building even though it
is a symbol of Kobe, but once we started researching about Port
Tower, we wanted to know more and more about it. Now we are
proud of ourselves that at least we can tell people from other city
about Port Tower.
