Japan is an extremely safe country but, like anywhere else the unexpected can happen.
Thus, the Japan tourism agency launched the “Safety tips App” in October 2014 which aims at providing disaster information to travelers from overseas. It is available in five languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese. It provides push notification of Earthquake early warning, Tsunami warning, Weather warning and Volcanic eruption notices issued in Japan. It also provides civil protection information such as ballistic missile launches.
Additionally, there is also a flowchart which shows the evacuation procedures to be taken at the time of a disaster.
This app is available free of charge on both Android and iOS devices.
