Starting from September, a disaster prevention book was distributed to each home in the Tokyo area. The book contains information about disasters and appropriate countermeasures to take in the event of a calamity such as a local earthquake in the metropolitan area. Important points are made easy to understand through the use of numerous illustrations. A PDF of the English version can be downloaded from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s homepage. There are also Chinese versions (in simplified Chinese characters as well as traditional Chinese characters) and a Korean version.
