A clock in the central shopping street of Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, is seen pointing to 5:46, the time on the morning of Jan. 17, 1995 when the 6.9-magnitude Great Hanshin Earthquake struck. The clock had been installed at the shopping arcade, but stopped moving when the temblor hit. (Mainichi)
