But a list of those municipalities is too much for JT? Obviously, 108 of them would fill a few pages, but still.

They don’t want to frighten those people. So let’s just scare everyone.

I hope that measures against and to prevent disasters will be strengthened swiftly," Kishida told the panel.

Hope? Are you not the leader of Japan? Shouldn't you be laying out actual plans, and informing the public about what measures you will implement WHEN the next disaster hits. (It's not an "if")

The government will increase the size of subsidies for the projects from half of the total cost to two-thirds when certain criteria are met.

Right, when they form committees that will assist in teaching companies just how to go about syphoning off their cuts, and then "readjusting" their estimates to show the increase in costs, so more tax money can be wasted!

When certain criteria are met? It doesn’t seem to me Kishida government is seriously trying to save lives.

Ahhh, there it is.

Kishida has had his feet under the desk for quite a while now.

I'd been wondering when he was going to give the concrete boys their slice of our money.

Not true. From the opinion of an outsider looking in, as most in the world see Japan, Japan does a much above average job of disaster preparation. Likewise much of the world is of the opinion that Japan dealt with the Covid-19 pandemic far more effectively than other nations did. Some here just seem to like to run all things Japanese down. For some it seems nothing Japan can do is right, even when Japan does much better than most nations at most things.

This is only in seven northern prefectures, though. There will be many more at-risk towns and cities further south.

The further away from Tokyo you get. the lesser importance of the plebs.
