Earthquake Proof Rental Properties

Apartments & Houses with higher Tolerance against Earthquakes

Within Tokyo, there are many condominium apartments and detached houses that have undergone earthquake resistance strengthening modifications or were built utilizing special earthquake resistant structures. 

Here is a selection of earthquake resistant rental properties utilizing seismic isolation structure, damping structure, 2x4 structure or another form of earthquake resistant reinforcement. Some of these properties have disaster prevention measures such as having a water well, stocking emergency supplies (food, blankets, first aid), and more in place.

Damping Structure (Vibration Control Structure)

Damping Structure is a type of earthquake reinforcement that reduces the impact of motion from an earthquake by using damping walls to absorb seismic energy. This type of structure reduces seismic response by 70-80%  more than what other earthquake resistant structures are capable of.
