Japan, being right over the Pacific Rim Earthquake Zone, is one of the world’s most earthquake prone countries.
In 1923, the Great Kanto Earthquake hit Tokyo. Its magnitude was 7.9, and over 90,000 people died in it.
Most of then were burned to death in fires caused by the earthquake because it’s happened just around lunch time.
It is possible to have another big earthquake in Tokyo again, or could hit any other part of Japan in anytime.
We cannot guess when or where…
We had the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake on the 17th of January in 1995. That killed over 6,400 people.

 

We are not trying to scare you, but just take your time and read this ‘Earthquake Survival Manual’.

When you feel a tremor, don’t panic, be calm, the major tremors usually last about one minute.
It is a good idea to prepare emergency supplies.
Put all emergency supplies in a backpack and leave the backpack near your bed or near the entrance.
