With a commentator as your guide, you will be watching a video content while answering quizzes and questions with a button in your hand. You will learn the history of disasters in the Tohoku region from ancient times to the present day while familiarizing ruins, historical sites, stone monuments, and ancient documents remaining in various areas in the Tohoku region. These contents will let anyone, from adults to children, learn together the importance of passing down history and ways on how to protect oneself during a disaster. (The contents will be viewed from a multiscreen installed in the dome-like theater of the Children's History Museum on the 3rd floor of the facility.)
Natural disasters on the same level of the Great East Japan Earthquake also several times occurred in the past. The importance of passing down history is about daily preparation and the readiness to protect lives. This will deepen our understanding of risk reduction and disaster preparedness in accordance with the Miyagi Prefecture Disaster Preparedness Supplementary Handbook.
