Our work in disaster preparedness-related training, activities around Oita and multilingual information.
Information on disaster preparedness.
Japan is prone to various natural disasters – it is therefore essential that you make yourself prepared.
The Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR) has compiled a collection of necessary information in case of disasters. The collection is a summary on practical information that can be used in the likelihood or occurence of a disaster.
In addition, Japan Meteorological Agency and NHK offer multilingual disaster information as needed.
또한 기상청과 NHK 홈페이지에서도 수시로 다언어로 재해 정보를 제공하고 있습니다.
