Preparing Emergency Kit

As we know, Japan is in the intersection of several continental plates, as well as home to over 100 active volcanoes. Which is why we experience a lot of earthquakes…

I realized we should always prepare some stuff, just in case…

Here’s a super basic list for a 24 hour single pack.

  • Water (10L minimum for a single person)
  • Flashlight
  • Batteries
  • Non-perishable food
  • Basic first aid kit
  • Candles and matches
  • Copies of your important docs like your foreigner card and your passport
  • Map of the evacuation area in your neighborhood.


What’s non perishable food…?

  • Cheese or peanut butter crackers.
  • Beef jerky.
  • Applesauce.
  • Pudding.
  • Fruit cups.
  • Granola bars.
  • Power bars.
  • Cereal bars.
