My Timeline

If there’s a torrential rain... will my home get flooded?
What should I take when I evacuate? Where should I evacuate to? When should I evacuate? The personal disaster action plan pre-prepared on a chronological axis for each resident, to tell you who should do what and when based on your household composition and living environment, is called My Timeline.

River Town Creation

Starting in FY2017, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport has been carrying out the River Town Creation Project in collaboration with the cities of Shimotsuma and Joso as a way to, for example, use river management routes as cycle paths.
The aim is to create a network of cycling routes as a way to bring more prosperity to the region.

Torrential rains in the Kanto and Tohoku regions on September 10, 2015, led to the Kinugawa river bursting its banks and flooding a wide area. Here you can learn about the destruction it caused through a range of hands-on exhibits to ensure that this experience will never be forgotten.
