The article mentions flood risk maps available on line, but doesn't provide links. Here is one link (in Japanese): http://www.gsi.go.jp/kanto/kanto41001.html

This is all horribly familiar! I have many experiences from the past (and probably some from the present that no one has been so impolite as to point out to me).
One that sticks in my mind is from sometime in the mid-1970s, when I was first in Japan as a language student. I went with my girlfriend (now wife of almost 40 years) to a hole in the wall place in Nagoya that served simple Chukka dishes. After briefly scanning the signs on the wall, I ordered the chahan setto (the friend rice set), with a side order of haramaki. The tiny restaurant went dead silent! I wanted to order "spring rolls" (harumaki), but had instead ordered "haramaki" (the belly wrap for Japanese construction workers and other laborers.)
Even today I pause to think before ordering either of these delicacies!

The Japanese language version of the historians' statement was issued simultaneously with the English version, distributed by internet, sent to Japanese mass media, and to representatives of the Japanese government.
Here is the link to the English version:
And here is the link to the Japanese version:
Both are dated May 4, 2015.

This story doesn't provide any information on who compiled this data, who published the poster, etc. I am actually interested in finding the sources of this. Can anyone help me find the poster producers, etc.? (and maybe the Japantoday writers/editors could put in info about sources in future articles?)
