Safety tips, an app for international visitors that provides disaster information, has been greatly
Last Update:2017/12/15

The Safety tips app*, which provides disaster info to international visitors, was launched in October 2014. The app has been greatly improved based on lessons from recent large-scale earthquakes, including the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake, so that international visitors can travel around Japan more safely

*This app provides disaster information to international visitors. The Japan Tourism Agency launched the app in October 2014 with the aim of achieving an environment in which international visitors can travel around Japan with a feeling of greater security. It is available in five languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese. It provides push notifications of Earthquake Early Warnings, Tsunami Warnings, Weather Warnings and Eruption Notices. In addition, there is an evacuation flowchart that shows what evacuation behaviors are required for the given conditions, a communication card that can be used to obtain information from Japanese people, and useful links that provide information in times of disaster.
