The Venue
Kobe dubbed itself an "international sport city" after the student Olympics were held there in 1985. A decade later sport was used as a focus for Kobe's restoration after a major earthquake. The Wing Stadium was so-called to conjure up the image of a bird rising from the ashes of the disaster.
