Tokyo Metropolitan Government is collaborating with the Tokyo Disaster Prevention Center to provide an experiential tour for foreign residents in Tokyo to learn about disaster prevention. Please join us!

At the Honjo Disaster Prevention Center, you can experience an original urban flood disaster. You can watch videos about localized heavy rain and tsunamis, and experience opening basement doors and doors of cars that are under water pressure after being flooded.

Last year’s participants were very pleased with the tour, saying, “The realistic simulation experience was meaningful,” and “I hope this tour will be held more frequently.”
