A paper lantern reading "We will beat the coronavirus" is pictured at a ceremony commemorating the 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake in Kobe's Chuo Ward on Jan. 17, 2021. Few bamboo lanterns were used this year due to the aging of volunteers and the effects of the coronavirus, with paper lanterns being used instead. (Mainichi/Kenji Ikai)
