What is Kyoto City Disaster Prevention Center?

As the saying goes "Great natural disasters come to us when we forget the last ones", No one can foresee when a major disaster, like the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, will strike and disrupt the peace of our daily lives. It is crucial to develop adequate judgment along with the knowledge to take effective action during a disaster so that you can save lives and limit property damage. At the Disaster Prevention Center you can learn how to protect yourself and how to act against disasters. We hope visitors to the Center will take advantage of our many disaster prevention exhibits to enhance their awareness of disaster prevention in order to protect your lives and property.
