Learning from the power of a community that overcame the disaster - Let's go to the beach at Oshika Peninsula!

Contents/ Itinerary for BOSAI Tourism

Assuming a big earthquake has occurred in the coastal area, you will learn about emergency response by experiencing emergency evacuation to an elevated area, post-evacuation protocols, and evacuation site management. After this, you will review each of your actions and decisions, and think about the knowledge, decisions, and actions necessary for emergency evacuation while assuming that a disaster has actually occurred in the area where you live. Also, local residents can participate in the shelter management experience or you may also hold a gathering with local residents to experience an emergency cooking activity which enables you to ask about the circumstances and their personal experiences during the earthquake.
