Disaster Preparedness Tokyo
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has compiled a manual called “Disaster Preparedness Tokyo” (Tokyo Bousai*) to help households get fully prepared for various potential disasters, including an earthquake directly hitting Tokyo.
“Disaster Preparedness Tokyo” is tailored to the various local features of Tokyo, such as its urban structure and the lifestyles of its residents. It contains easy-to-understand information on how to prepare for and respond to a disaster. This information is useful both in the event of an emergency and to help you prepare proactively now.
*“Bousai” means “disaster preparedness” in Japanese.
