Disaster prevention

Japan is a country prone to earthquakes.  Here are a few recommendations in case a major earthquake strikes:

  • Turn off all possible sources of fire (gas equipment, electric appliances, etc.)
  • Open a door or window to secure an exit. Do not rush outside in a panic.
  • Protect yourself by crawling under a sturdy table or desk or some other item of furniture.
  • Obtain accurate information from TV or radio.
  • Check on the safety of your neighbors and assist them if you can.
  • If you are outdoors, cover your head and watch out for falling glass from broken windows
Please check the following interactive map for all information about disaster prevention (shelters, evacuation areas, convenience stores, etc.) in your district.
