In Japan September 1 is Disaster Prevention Day (#防災の日 -bousai no hi) in memory of the Great Kanto earthquake that happened in 1923. On this day preparations and drills for natural disasters are carried out all around the country (especially in Kanto).

The earthquake, which mainly affected Tokyo and Yokohama, was 7.8 on the Richter scale and left more than 100.000 dead and missing.

As it happened at 12 p.m., many places were preparing food and that caused numerous fires. It is said that the city burned for almost two days.

If you want to do a drill to prevent natural disasters or know how an earthquake feels we recommend you visit the Tokyo Fire Department in Ikebukuro, since they have the Life Safety Learning Center that organizes natural disaster prevention tours with an earthquake simulator.
