The cause of the Hanshin earthquake is because of the location where Japan is. Kobe is located the farthest away from the three big tectonic plates: Pacific, Eurasian and Philippine. Kobe is also located right under parts of the fault that was already broken down from big earthquakes in 1944 and 1946, so it would have more possibilities to have an earthquake.
