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

By telling about the situation of each day in terms of "what happened?" and "what did people do?" in the middle of turbulent times, I would like participants to think about "what is necessary?" as a lesson and prepare for disasters which may happen in the future.
