Bosai Festa -Let’s experience “Bosai (disaster risk reduction)” in English
and easy Japanese –

Japan is earthquake-prone country and yet there are not many chances for foreign people to know about disaster prevention measures.  Minato City is planning to hold “Minato Bosai Festa” proceeded in English and easy Japanese to further ensure the safety and security of foreign people. We want foreign people to get basic knowledge of disaster preparedness, so that they will be able to protect themselves in a time of disaster.  In order to increase their awareness of preparation for emergency, we will encourage their participation in the local disaster drills at Shiba, Azabu, Akasaka, Takanawa and Shibaura-konan districts.  

There are various interactive programs held in English and easy Japanese in the booths at the event.  Minato International Disaster-relief Volunteers will assist you as an interpreter at each booth.  Visitors may enjoy learning about disaster preparedness through participating in the experience-based programs.
