It is a place where you can sleep, receive food, medical assistance and information. It is a safe place for all people (Japanese and foreigners), even for foreigners who do not have a visa.
In several cities many primary and junior high schools work as a shelter, there are several places of shelter before a disaster, it would be good to leave a place of refuge to meet in case of an earthquake in advance with family or even friends. Not to be worried.

Reserve drinking water for 3 days, 3 liters per day for each person. Bottles of drinking water are sold at the Home Center, which can be kept for 5 years, called HIJOYOINRYOSUI.
Reserve food, instant food, canned food and more for a minimum of 3 days.
