About Earthquake Preparedness

This is a message from Koka City Kiki Kanri Ka (Crisis Management Division).

On Monday, June 18th, 2018, a major earthquake occurred in the northern part of Osaka Prefecture. Strong aftershocks can still occur even 1 week after the original event.

It is important to check your surroundings for damages and to make preparations in the case of an evacuation (such as emergency bags).

Here is a link to CLAIR’s Multilingual Living Information site for more information about Emergencies/Disasters and preparations;


Please prepare for the earthquake before it happens.
