In Japan, locals were taught how to react to disaster scenarios starting from their childhood as disaster awareness drills are preformed regularly.

But for non-Japanese, staying in Japan it is hard to react once an earthquake or disaster hit Japan. In most disaster drills performed in every community of Japan, the drills are only explained in Japanese which makes it hard for non-Japanese to understand.

Fortunately, different organization have prepared translated disaster awareness documents for non-Japanese.
