Dear Dragos,

You can try the following websites, but keep in mind that some of the
specific data may not be available in internet due to imposed copyright
restriction by original data owner such as Osaka Gas Co and etc.
Nonetheless, you may still find many records from the kobe city area and
surrounding islands.
Note that there are several near-source records from Hyogoken-Nanbu (Kobe)
earthquake (having low-frequency contents as well) which are extremely
unique one, and they might be destructive not only to conventionally
designed structures but also to isolated buildings. Maybe much destructive
than motions of Sylmar, Tarzana and so on station records.

Good Luck
