Remember that night well - my wife and I had to pick our way through debris to a HS ground, me carrying my tariffed dog. Google what you need in a disaster and keep it all in one place, a bug-out bag. Fortunately, I'm a camper, so I already had my stuff in two large nylon bags, plus three tents. That said, aid was very quick to arrive.

Glad they have these reminders as I completely forgot about this event.

Rest In Peace to all those lost. Condolences their families.

Family friends have since relocated to Kyoto but miss the climate, culture and local people.

As @Laguna suggests, they also strongly recommend always being prepared to evacuate and, if necessary, having to perhaps live out-of-doors for a few days. Bottle water always on hand.

@laguna sorry you went through that.

Anything to put in the bag that one wouldn’t normally think of?

Can't think of anything. Hahah.

I have a backpack in preparation (Tokyo area), and one thing I have in it, that most might not, is medicines such as antibiotics, anti-diarrheal, and painkillers.
