The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Unveils a Comprehensive Disaster Preparedness Pamphlet and Video, Introducing Initiatives Using Advanced Technology


 Cities around the world face many of the same challenges when it comes to dealing with natural disasters, whether it be increasingly frequent floods brought on by climate change, or earthquakes and other such calamities. In order to protect the lives and livelihoods of Tokyo’s more than 14 million residents, and maintain the city’s functions and economic activities that support all of Japan, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) has taken a variety of countermeasures, backed by technology and past experiences.

 TMG is pleased to announce that the English versions of a pamphlet and video, introducing Tokyo’s disaster preparedness measures, are now available online. TMG is working to realize a city with the durability and stability to ensure safety for the next 100 years.

 In addition to measures for securing electricity in the case of windstorms, earthquakes and other disasters, this pamphlet introduces our advanced initiatives that utilize digital technology in an easy-to-understand format with the extensive use of visual images.

 This video introduces wind and flood damage countermeasures. These are issues shared by cities around the world and are presented in an easy-to-understand format using photos and illustrations.
