On 17 January 1995, the Great Hanshin Earthquake occurred. Lifelines such as the roads, railroads, electricity, water supply, gas and telephone lines were cut off. At that time, Kobe Shimbun’s photojournalist Mitsuyama Tomohiko (Sakurai Sho), was a news photographer in his fourth year with the paper. Kobe Shimbun, which had been around for 110 years, was a popular local newspaper that the people of Hyogo had to have. Furthermore, its staff was proud that the the paper had never suspended publication since its establishment. However, the paper’s functions were completely paralysed by the earthquake, which had destroyed its computers and also made the development of photographs difficult. All they had left were just two phone lines and a rotary press but they did not give up producing newspapers.
