The Hyogo-Ken-Nanbu Earthquake caused heavy damage in Kobe city and its surrounding area. To clear the relationship between damage and local site effect, a month after the earthquake, microtremor measurement was performed for about a year. According to the measurement results in the damaged zone, the amplification factor (A) ranges between 2 and 3 which is not so high. However the predominant frequency (F) ranges between 1.5 and 2 Hz which corresponds to that of strong motion. Distribution
of vulnerability index Kg value for ground confirmed the damage belt.
