  The earthquake that struck central Tottori in October of 2016, registering a little under 6 on the Japanese seismic intensity scale, helped usher in a renewed interest in earthquake and tsunami  preparedness among the residents of the prefecture.

   In response to that and to help enhance awareness surrounding measures to be taken to protect and assist both yourself and others, the Yurihama Lecture on Disaster Preparedness will be held at 10am on Sunday, March 3rd, at the Yurihama Central Community Center. The special guest lecturer, Tottori University Honorary Professor Mr. Ryohei Nishida, will discuss seismic activity in Tottori Prefecture and its surrounding areas and what residents can do to prepare for future earthquake emergency situations.

           ※Lecture will be given in Japanese.
