Could this building be the Konami building that appears in SD Snatcher?: Google Earth kmz file

On this Konami Japan page you can read: "1986. August. KONAMI Software Development Building was completed in Port Island, Kobe, and KONAMI headquarters (currently Kobe Building) was moved there."

The little island that you can see on Google Earth is Port Island (Kobe).

But on the page with corporate info about Konami you can also read: "1995. January. The Kobe Building was partly damaged in the Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake."

Is there anybody living in Kobe who can check it out? :)

The building is still there and if it was damaged in the earthquake, it has been repaired quickly. I have been there, walking around on Port Island in 1999 and it still looked the same as can be seen on the pictures.

Do you remember its exact location? Is it the one that can be seen in the kmz file?
