With a commentator as your guide, you will be watching a video content while answering quizzes and questions. 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 from natural hazards. The contents will be viewed from a multiscreen installed in the domelike theater of the Children's History Museum on the 3rd floor of the facility.
