Disaster Manual

HOME > Disaster Information > Disaster Manual

What should you do if an earthquake happens?

What items should you prepare in case an earthquake?

What is an earthquake? What is a Tsunami?

If there is a nuclear power plant accident, what should you do?
If there is a Typhoon, what should you do?

We have created a disaster manual for emergencies.

The Disaster manual can be printed so it fits nicely your passport to carry with you. It is also available at the International Association, Internaitonal Affairs Divisions at each municipality, and at the branch office of the Immigration Department.

In the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant accident, the health effects of radiation exposure are a source of concern for foreign residents.
Basic knowledge and information have been put together to give a better understanding of radiation exposure and support good living conditions, in 7 languages.
We hope that a large number of foreign residents will find it useful.
