Daikai Station (大開駅 Daikai-eki?, station number: HS 37) is a train station on the Hanshin Railway Kobe Kosoku Line in Hyōgo-ku, Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. It was the first underground structure not crossing an active fault that has completely collapsed during an earthquake without liquefaction of the surrounding soil and was well-documented.

History[edit]

In the Great Hanshin earthquake of 1995, this station collapsed.

Layout[edit]

The Daikai Station consists of three main sections: the main section of the station, the subway tunnels section and the station access section.[1] The location of the station is made up of 2 meter thick man made fill, around 5 meter thick Holocene alluvial deposits, and several kilometers of Pleistocene deposits.[1]
