Leaning BOSAI from Jomon Era History "Disasters and the Jomon People"

Contents/ Itinerary for BOSAI Tourism

Participants will first watch a 10-minute documentary about the local area at the theater on the first floor, and then join a lecture by the director of the museum. The theme of the director’s lecture is, “Bosai learned from the Jomon People”. The director will use photographs and charts to aid his lecture about the damage caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake, as well as the history of this area – people have survived a lot of natural disasters here ever since the Jomon era (about 3,000 - 6,000 years ago).

What we want to tell through the experiences of BOSAI Tourism Contents

Participants will gain knowledge and learn lessons from the history of disasters and prepare for future disasters.
Participants will learn the various ways that Jomon people used to hand down the stories of the disasters.
Participants will come to realize that they themselves are responsible for handing down stories of their own experience in the disaster. Participants will consider what should be done in order to effectively hand down these stories – both as individuals and as a community.
Based on the latest disaster, this program will give a chance for participants to start learning about the geographical features and the history of the area that they live.
