Tokyo has been strengthening measures against natural disasters to realize a resilient capital city. In particular, in response to a capital earthquake, we are working to remove utility poles, improve densely wooded areas, and promote earthquake resistance.
On July 1st, half a year after the Noto Peninsula earthquake, we will be holding the Tokyo Earthquake Resistance Symposium, as detailed below, with the aim of encouraging every Tokyo resident to imagine a direct hit earthquake and to foster momentum for earthquake resistance in buildings.
We hope that this symposium will raise awareness of disaster prevention and raise awareness of the importance of earthquake resistance in buildings. We look forward to your participation.
