Residents of Hyogo Prefecture, the scene of a major earthquake in January 1995 that devastated the Kobe area, on Tuesday donated 85.49 million yen to the United states as an education fund for the children of victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Hyogo Gov. Toshizo Ido presented the donation to the Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of America in a ceremony at the Japanese Consulate General in New York.
